Sacco looking ahead

Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep offensive guard Brandon Sacco has already attended two events for juniors at schools and he's hoping to set up more similar trips.

Prospects at Don Bosco will undoubtedly receive more attention than those at some smaller, lesser-known programs, so Sacco shouldn't have any problems making himself known to college coaches.

"Everything is pretty much the same as it was earlier. I'm talking to pretty much the same schools and of course I've attended the two junior days already," he explained.

"I went to Rutgers and Boston College so far. They both have really nice campuses with nice facilities. I talked to the coaches a little bit. At Rutgers there were a lot of kids there so I couldn't talk to them that much. Their coaches came to our school the week after that so we saw them then.

"The coaches really didn't say too much. They just really talked about what position they want me to play. That's still really up in the air. I think Rutgers wants me to play on offense and I'm not sure what BC wants."

The 6-foot-3, 243-pound prospect could play on either the offensive or defensive line at the college level.

Sacco is already looking ahead to what events he would like to attend at other schools in the near future.

"I'm planning on going to Duke, Virginia and hopefully either UCLA or Michigan State," he said. "I'm still waiting on getting my highlight film done, so I'll have to wait and see on that. I'm going to play everything by ear and wait to see what schools have to say."
