Louie Addazio is a tight end prospect from the Sunshine State that recently picked up his first two scholarship offers. Addazio, from Gainesville Buchholz High School, was offered by USF two weeks ago and Syracuse last week.
"USF was my first offer and that was about two weeks ago," Addazio said. "That was awesome and really cool. My coach told me early that day. My mom and I went down this past Monday. It was great. I saw practice, toured facilities and saw the campus. They like me as an H-back and tight end.
"Syracuse offered me last week. That that was great because it's a dream come true for me. They emailed me and I called them that night. I called again the next day and talked with coach (Doug) Marrone."
There are some other schools that could be close to offering him a scholarship but they better hurry up because a decision from Addazio could come soon.
"Duke and Rutgers right now seem pretty close to offering. They have both have called my dad and said they love my tape. I plan on going back up to Syracuse this Thursday and make my college decision soon."
Does Addazio have a leader between the Bulls and Orangemen?
"It's 50-50 between those two schools. I really like the coaches at USF. They are up tempo and hard on their players. It's a talented team and I also really like coach (Larry) Scott.
"It's my dream to play for Syracuse. It's a tough program with tough coaches. You know they will turn it around and I would love to be a part of that."
