Virginia leads for LB/FB

Washington Township, N.J.'s Ryan D'Imperio already has two offers on the table, but the linebacker and fullback prospect is also hearing from some major programs.
Recently, D'Imperio has heard from Miami and Georgia Tech, although he continues to say that Virginia is still in the lead for his services. He has offers from Rutgers and West Virginia and is also interested in both of those programs.
"I'm staying open but Virginia is an impressive program to me both for football and academics," he said. "West Virginia and Rutgers offered early, which shows their interest and I'm hearing from a bunch of other schools."
The 6-foot-2, 230-pounder helped Washington Township to an 8-4 record as they reached the Group 4 championship. He went on to post 973 yards rushing and 14 touchdowns; he added two receiving touchdowns as well.
On defense, D'Imperio posted 64 tackles, 7 for loss, two interceptions, three sacks and a fumble for a touchdown as he was named first team all-group running back and linebacker.
This spring D'Imperio is planning on heading to the Penn State Nike Combine and he is looking into attending the Blue Chip Combine at Rutgers on May 2nd.
D'Imperio's brother, Hugh, is currently playing football at Michigan State and the Spartans have been in contact.
"I'm going to make a decision for what's best for me," he said. "I won't pick a school just to play with my brother."
