Holy Cross (Delran, NJ) offensive lineman Dennis Landolt saw his offer list increase dramatically over the last few weeks of the evaluation period. Now, the 6-5, 275 pound prospect boasts offers from 17 Division I-A programs.

Next week Landolt will attend summer camp at Notre Dame, a school who has not yet offered him a scholarship. He looks forward to the visit.

“I’m going to Notre Dame for one day,” Landolt said. “I’m excited to see the place. Notre Dame wasn’t one of my childhood favorites or anything like that. They are Notre Dame, and it’s a great school. They haven’t offered because they want to see me in person.”

Following the Notre Dame camp, Landolt will make unofficial visits to Northwestern and Michigan State. Next month, he hopes to pay visits to Syracuse, Boston College, and Virginia Tech, all of whom have offered officially.

Landolt has some past experience with Tech since his brother played football for West Virginia.

“Virginia Tech came in last month,” Landolt said. “I know a little about them. I met Coach Rogers when he came in last month. I know how they’ve been over the past four years or so. One time I went out there when West Virginia played them. I was young, but I thought it was a nice place. The fans were really good.”

Following the three unofficial visits to Boston College, Syracuse, and Virginia Tech, Landolt may make his collegiate decision.

“My decision maybe will come by the end of the summer,” Landolt said. “I’m not sure. After I see all of the schools, I’ll have a better idea of if I’m ready to make my decision.”

Landolt does have a favorite right now, and it’s Penn State.

“Penn State is first, then Virginia is second, and then West Virginia is third,” Landolt said when ranking his top three schools. “It’s still really tough to call. You see a school and you think that school is the best.

Landolt talked about the positives for each of his top three schools.

“For Penn State, I really like everything they have out there,” Landolt said. “The facilities are great. The new classrooms they are building are great. I had a chance to work with the Offensive Line Coach during last summer’s camp and I liked it. He was really nice but also serious about what he was doing.

“For Virginia, I think the program is really great as far as their recruiting
