Centreville (Clifton, VA) offensive tackle prospect Pat Sheil made what may be his final summer camp appearance for 2004 this past weekend, when he participated in Virginia Tech’s senior camp. Sheil says the experience was fun.

“I had a lot of fun,” Sheil said. “I had a chance to talk to Coach Ward, Coach Stinespring, and Coach Beamer. I got to see a lot of prospects from the state such as Ed Wang.

The 6-7, 270 pound four-star prospect visited Boston College last week. He talked about his experience in Boston and what he likes about the Eagles right now. He also commented about the positives for both Georgia and Virginia Tech.

It’s a great school with a great campus. It’s a small campus, but I think that’s good because you can walk from top to bottom in about 10 minutes. You can take the T-Train into Boston if you want to go there and have some fun or go to a Red Sox game. The fact that it’s Catholic is pretty nice. I think my parents like that. They like the idea of me going to a [Catholic school] where I’d be watched over and with a disciplined schedule.

“For Georgia, obviously they have good success. They are the preseason number 1. Georgia stands out in all sports… not just football. The academic support team sounds fantastic. They offer everything a football player needs. What I was really
