Magill Says Delaware 'Felt Right'; U-Md., VT in Hunt at QO

Quince Orchard tight end Cody Magill did the summer camp circuit and had 13 scholarship offers, including several from I-A schools like Syracuse and Miami of Ohio. But when he went to a game at Delaware, making his college choice was easy.

Picking a I-AA offer "didn't really matter to me," Magill said. "Watching a game [there], I just felt like it was the right atmosphere."

Quince Orchard Coach Dave Mencarini, with three other highly recruited players on this season's team, said that Magill's decision "goes to show what kind of kid he is. He's looking at the big picture and it's nice to see that. He's looking at what Delaware can do for him for football and academics. It's rare, but you know what? It's refreshing in the world of recruiting."

Quince Orchard All-Met lineman Terrence Stephens already has committed to play for Stanford, while defensive back Travis Hawkins and defensive end Jason Ankrah have yet to make their choices.

Mencarini said that Hawkins and Ankrah will visit Michigan on Oct. 4. Hawkins also plans to visit Maryland, Oregon and two other schools while Ankrah also plans to visit Virginia Tech, Penn State and Tennessee, according to Mencarini.

Hawkins and Ankrah will both choose Michigan.

There is no way, that either of them would be so stupid to chose Maryland.

Go Tar Heels !

As for Hawkins and Ankrah, schools that
17 year-olds visit or consider can change
by the day, can't they.

Things change quickly in college football.

That's what makes it fascinating.
