Eastern Virginia…

Top 2007 target J’Courtney Williams has landed offers from Louisville and Mississippi State to go along with offers from Maryland, Virginia and Virginia Tech. The 6-3, 218-pound linebacker prospects continues to receive interest in basketball as well, although coach Ed Homer says his star currently wants to play football on the next level.

UVa remains in strong position here, although Homer does not expect a decision from Williams soon. Williams is drawing heavy interest from a number of other programs including LSU and Michigan State, so don’t be surprised to see the offer list continue to climb in the near future.


Northern Virginia…

6-6, 280-pound Stone Bridge (Ashburn, VA) offensive lineman Andrew Nuss has two early offers – from Maryland and West Virginia, respectively. An offer from Duke is on the way as well, according to head coach Mickey Thompson.

Thompson has not sent video to Virginia or Virginia Tech but plans to do so soon. Neither school has been in serious contact yet. No need for fans to worry, however, as Nuss will likely wait at least until the summer to make a decision.

“He’s not going to accept any offers until the summer,” Thompson said of Nuss.

Nuss is definitely interested in hearing from Virginia Tech, but it is unknown how much interest he has in Virginia at this point. He made a visit to Maryland recently.

A good athlete, he played basketball and football as a sophomore. Nuss chose not to play basketball this year in order to concentrate on football.


Central Virginia…

Varina recently had testing for its players. Top defensive back prospect Davon Morgan measured in at 6-0, 182 pounds, benched 185 pounds 12 times and squatted 225 pounds 10 times. Morgan has official offers from Michigan, Richmond and Virginia Tech, with Rutgers and Virginia among those showing serious interest as well.

Jamar Jackson, an outside linebacker for the Blue Devils, may be the second best Division 1A prospect on the team. He measured in at 6-4 ¾, 212 pounds. He benched 185 pounds eight times but expects to improve upon that number before the start of his senior season. Jackson is using the off-season to prepare for his senior football season.

No schools have offered Jackson, who could end up as a defensive end on the next level.

6-0, 281-pound defensive tackle Bud Tribbey is the strongest
