Zeller adds Oregon to offer list; More info on YAIAA-Mid-Penn all-star game
The stock on Red Lion lineman Andrew Zeller appears to keep going up. Last month, the Red Lion lineman added his fourth written scholarship offer -- this one from Pac-10 (is it Pac-16 yet?) power Oregon. The Ducks visited Zeller early last month, and extended an official offer shortly after that, Lions coach Pat Conrad said.
Zeller has been tripping all over the country, taking visits and keeping his options open. Last weekend he stopped by North Carolina, N.C. State, Tennessee and Vanderbilt. Next weekend, he'll head to camps at Michigan and Michigan State.
Currently, the 6-foot-5, 280-pound rising senior also has written offers from Duke, Maryland and Rutgers.
"He's going to get a free college education, and the cost of his education is traveling around and visiting these places," Conrad said.
Conrad added at Zeller is in no hurry to make a college decision. And why should he be? If he continues to perform well at various camps this summer, his offer sheet could easily expand.
