6-2, 185 pound wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi ‘s scholarship offer list has increased to 18 total offers since the Evaluation period. The Independence High School (Charlotte, NC) star isn’t overwhelmed by the amount of offers, however, and is instead looking forward to the rest of his recruiting process…however long that may be.
“It’s going to be easy for me,” Massaquoi said of his decision-making process. “We have had a lot of people who have experience with it. People I can talk to about the same situation. I know a lot of players who have gone on to college. Our wide receivers coach was recruited before too. It’s not going to be difficult.

“For UVa, basically I’m just taking my coach’s word for it. I’ve never been there. If I have time this summer I might go up there. Our wide receivers coach was recruited by them and told me they have a pretty good program. I’ve spoken with Mike Groh. Right now they need receivers and there’s a chance for early playing time.”
Of the top four, Massaquoi admitted one was above the rest.
“Georgia,” Massaquoi said when asked if any of the top...
