Tom Luginbill, the National Recruiting Director for ESPN's Scouts Inc., has started his daily "recruiting nuggets" e-mails again, and I'll try to pass them on to you when they include ACC news. You can find these updates and more on our Recruiting Trail. Here's today's recruiting update, as reported by ESPN's Scouts Inc.:
14 schools after coveted Pacific Northwest prospect Seferian-Jenkins
Class of 2011 tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (Gig Harbor, Wash.) told ESPN affiliate Web site IrishSportsDaily.com that he's expecting 14 written scholarship offers on Sept. 1st.
The entire Pac-10 minus USC, Florida, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, North Carolina and Boise State are believed to be on his list of suitors.
"I'm excited about that, and it's something I'm looking forward to, but it's not about the quantity, it's about the quality, and I have a lot of quality schools interested in me, and I'm excited about that," he said of Sept. 1st.
Junior athlete C.J. Uzomah expecting a loaded mailbox on Sept. 1st
C.J. Uzomah (Suwanee, Ga./North Gwinnett) believes he'll receive written scholarship offers from Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, LSU, South Florida, Indiana, Maryland and Clemson on Sept. 1st., ESPN affiliate Web site IrishSportsDaily.com reports.
Notre Dame, UCLA, Duke and Wake Forest are also recruiting Uzomah, a high school quarterback being recruited to play elsewhere by most schools.
He threw two touchdown passes Saturday night to lead North Gwinnett past Prattville, Ala.
Under Armour All-American athlete Corey Brown names five finalists
ESPNU 150 prospect Corey Brown (Springfield, Pa./Cardinal O'Hara) updated affiliate Web site InsideTheU.com on the current status of his recruitment.
"The final five is Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Ohio State, Miami, and Rutgers," Brown said. "I like Miami a little bit more than everyone else but it's pretty close."
"Miami's recruiting me the hardest, they're sending me handwritten letters almost every day," he added. "I've been talking to all of their coaches and the letters have been wishing me a good senior year. They say that they hope I feel better with my knee and stuff like that so that makes me feel good."
Brown hopes to make official visits to his final five schools. His only set date is to Ohio State on Sept. 12th for the Buckeyes' contest against USC.
