Virginia DB on radar

Ashburn (Va.) Stone Bridge safety Spenser Rositano is still waiting for his first FBS offers of the recruiting process but UConn, along with several other schools, is showing serious interest. Is Rositano a serious option for the Huskies?

The 6-foot-2, 193-pound defensive back has probably heard more from Boston College than any other school, and Rositano admitted that he has a high level of interest in the Eagles.

"I've been calling them," he said of Boston College. "Plus we've been e-mailing back and forth. They pretty much said they're just gonna talk to the head coach. I've talked to coach Siravo and he said he's going to push as hard as he can to get the offer out there. I'm just gonna keep my fingers crossed and hopefully they'll come through soon."

While BC appears to be Rositano's best hope for an offer at the present moment, UConn is another school that could factor into things down the road. Whether that happens or not will probably depend on what some of the Huskies' other top targets do, and whether any spots are freed up.

"I've been e-mailing them a little," Rositano said of UConn. "I've talked to them a little bit but not as much as I've been talking to BC. I'm still keeping in good contact though.

"Coach Perkins, the defensive backs coach, has been e-mailing me. I think they said they're gonna wait to see some of my scrimmage and game film before they move forward with anything else. They said they'll go from there. I guess they want to see me play a couple of games or something like that, so I'll hear something before too long.

"I went up to their camp the first week of June. It was a beautiful campus. They had really nice facilities and that's what I'm looking for, plus a good education. I'm just trying to stay in contact with them and see where things go."

Rositano said he would probably jump on an offer from BC right away. If UConn offered he would want to take one more visit to the school before committing. That's because he has already been to BC three times and is more acquainted with the program at this point.
