Big-time DE picks up BC offer
While the recruiting process is young for prospects in the Class of 2010 we're starting to get a good idea as to who the top prospecst in the junior class are. One New York defensive end is watching his stock rise by the day, and Boston College recently extended an offer.
Staten Island (N.Y.) Curtis defensive end Dominique Easley is a force at 6-foot-3 and 258-pounds. He has a powerful, college-ready build and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.7 seconds.
As a junior for Curtis he was nearly unblockable, recording 51 tackles and 10 sacks coming off the edge. Until just recently the recruiting process had been relatively quiet for him.
More recently, however, Easley picked up offers from Boston College, Duke, Rutgers and Syracuse.
"I just talked to Boston College (on Wednesday)," Easley eplained. "They said they liked my film and everything, and that they were offering a scholarship.
"I talked to coach Spaz, the head coach. He seems really good. I like him a lot.
"I know a lot about them. We have a former player that goes there -- Dominick LeGrande. He's been telling me a lot of stuff about them and getting me to look at them."
Easley said he would probably visit during one of the Eagle's spring practices but has not set up anything yet.
He recently sent his film out to schools and believes that is the reason for the influx of offers over the past couple of weeks. What does he expect in the near future?
"I think the next school to offer is probably going to be Notre Dame," he said. "My coach recently spoke to my recruiter. I think that was last Friday, so I should know something soon."
