Offensive tackle Sean Karl (Manorville, N.Y./Eastport-South Manor Consolidated) has verbal scholarship offers from Buffalo, Syracuse and Stony Brook, and reason to believe that list will grow.

The 6-foot-6, 295-pound junior, said Connecticut, Notre Dame, Penn State, Rutgers and Virginia are the other schools that are showing significant interest.

"Most schools in the Northeast are interested in him," Eastport-South Manor Consolidated coach Brian Sacks said. "UConn said they'd like him to come to their camp and there would be a possible offer. Virginia said, 'He looks great on film. We just want to meet him before we give him an offer.'"
