Fedrick making case for scholarship offer

ESPN's Roger Brown checks in today on his recruiting blog with Salem (N.H.) running back Jerickson Fedrick, who has still yet to receive a Division 1 scholarship offer but certainly made a big case for himself last weekend.

The 5-foot-11, 205-pound Fedrick, considered one of the Granite State's fastest players, carried the ball 19 times for 141 yards and four touchdowns in a 50-30 win over Manchester Central last weekend. He also added two more scores on kickoff returns of 98 and 99 yards.

Brown writes:

"I just have to be patient and show that I can play," Fedrick said.

Fedrick has been communicating with five schools -- Boston College, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island -- since last spring.

"It would be nice to have an offer, especially from [New Hampshire], but I didn't go to their [one-day camp], so that probably hurt me a lot," Fedrick said. "I don't think they've seen enough to offer yet."

Fedrick is also a standout in track and field. As a junior he ran the fastest 55 meters (6.39 seconds) in New England. He attended football camps at BC, Fordham and East Carolina last summer.

"I know BC is very intrigued," Salem coach Jack Gati said. "That's the word they used."

Fedrick entered his senior season with 2,767 yards rushing and said each school is recruiting him as an athlete.

"The position doesn't matter to me," he said. "I'll play anywhere. The first school that does give me an offer is going to be one of my favorites."
