Notes: VT After DeMatha OL, WR

While Good Counsel (Olney, MD) has captured the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference postseason championship each of the past four seasons, DeMatha Catholic (Hyattsville, MD) remains one of the league’s top programs.  Led by a talented rising senior class, DeMatha, which has reached the WCAC final three of the past four years, could be poised to retake the WCAC crown in 2013.

“On paper, we look pretty good,” Stags head coach Elijah Brooks said.  “We have a solid senior class.  This class, it was thrown into the fire when I took over.  We had some guys transfer.  Sophomores were asked to step in and play.  I think that was a blessing in disguise.  They were able to play, learn confidence, and be leaders.”

At least one DeMatha underclassman will be in Blacksburg this Sunday, June 2, when Virginia Tech football hosts its first one-day camp of 2013.  In terms of the WCAC power’s noted rising senior group, mammoth offensive tackle Brock Ruble has been a focus of the Hokies’ recruiting since October of 2012, when Frank Beamer extended an offer.

Ruble’s impressive scholarship offer list includes Florida, Florida State, Maryland, N.C. State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Rutgers, South Carolina, Syracuse, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech, West Virginia and Wisconsin.  Virginia Tech was one of the first schools to offer, and it is also one of the schools the 6’9″, 310-pound prospect has visited so far.
