Robinson (Fairfax, VA) star athlete Lucas Caparelli continues to take his time in his recruitment. With his senior season completed, the 5-11, 190-pound prospect will take the coming weeks to gather more information and talk to coaches before setting his official visits.

“I’m not sure yet,” Caparelli replied when asked where he planned to take his official visits. “I’m going to take the month of December and the Holidays, talk to some coaches and with my family before I schedule official visits. My official visits will come in January.”

Asked if he has any favorites at this point, Caparelli answered “I’m still pretty open. I’m still considering all of the schools that have offered. I’m still looking at Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, Pitt, Michigan, Michigan State and Duke.”

The in-state programs continue to be in the mix.

“Both are under consideration,” Caparelli said. “I don’t have a favorite. Both are great universities. Virginia has highly touted academics and Virginia Tech is good, too. Both offer good things.”

Caparelli made an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech for the Miami game, saying “I had a good time.” It was the only unofficial visit for a game he made this fall.

While the in-state schools remain in contention, Caparelli is open to leaving the state of Virginia. Asked if location was a factor, he replied “absolutely not. That’s not an issue.”

The Season…

Mark Bendorf’s squad finished the year with a 9-2 record and an appearance in the Division 6 Northern Region playoffs. Caparelli had another impressive season, rushing 197 times for 1,466 yards and 21 touchdowns. He added 14 catches for 490 yards and six more scores.

Caparelli says playing for as good a program as Robinson has prepared him well for the next level.

“I know it’s going to be a big step,” Caparelli said of playing Division 1A college football. “The competition is very high. I hope I’m prepared. I think playing here will help.”

Caparelli is being recruited by most schools as an athlete.
