Though he is very proud of his five scholarship offers (from Cincinnati, Maryland, Syracuse, UNC, and UVa respectively), Hermitage quarterback Jameel Sewell hasn’t had much time to reflect this summer. Instead, the 6-3, 200 pound lefty has been hitting the summer camp circuit as well as going to summer school and working out with the team.
“It’s been exhausting,” Sewell said of the summer camp sessions. “I’ve been to NC State, Maryland, and Virginia. I haven’t played at 100 percent for the whole time. I pulled my groin in one of them but that’s 100 percent now. I’ve been really sore from camp to camp.
“Coach [Patrick] Kane has been working us hard in the weight room and he also has made some of us go to summer school so we can get ahead for next year.”

I’ve been to Maryland twice but I’ve been to UVa I don’t know how many times. Honestly, I felt comfortable at both schools.”
Upcoming visits for Sewell include a trip to Blacksburg for Virginia Tech’s senior camp on July 10th. Sewell says Virginia Tech has “not shown much interest” and feels they will not offer. He may visit UNC unofficially, as he has never visited there before.
“I haven’t been to UNC,” Sewell said. “I actually just got information for their top prospect day. I think it’s sometime in July. I’m going to try and go to that.”
Sewell had admitted before that he was thinking about making a decision during his senior season. The timetable may have...
