Not long ago Maryland became the first school to extend an offer to Evan Mulrooney, one of the top juniors in Delaware.
As April approaches the 6-foot-4, 282-pound offensive lineman is still waiting for his second offer to come in, but he has noticed a significant increase in the amount of attention he is receiving from colleges.
"I haven't gotten anymore offers yet but a couple more schools have come into the mix and most schools are showing a lot more interest because I got that first offer," Mulrooney explained.
"One of the schools that started talking to me not long ago was Cincinnati. That was right when I was offered by Maryland. They called my coach and my coach sent my highlight tape out there. They really liked it and that started my relationship with those guys. I was really excited when all that happened.
"My coach has also told me that Syracuse was talking a lot to him about me. I haven't talked to them a lot, though.
"Penn State has seemed more interested. They were talking to me a lot before, but I guess they felt the need to show a little more interest now."
Mulrooney said he also speaks to UConn and Rutgers on a regular basis. The Huskies have hinted that they would like to be the next to offer, but they haven't made that official yet.
He said he wants to attend spring practices or spring games at Maryland, Rutgers, UConn, Cincinnati and perhaps even Michigan State.
"I'd probably say Maryland's my favorite just because they were the first to offer," he continued. "That was kind of a big deal for me and made me feel honored. I like them a lot. It's a program that's surrounded by a bunch of great guys and I'm catching a great vibe from them. That said, it's still early, so who knows?"
