Smallwood likes ACC, Big East

While most prospects look at individual schools, Worcester (Mass.) Doherty Memorial linebacker Yawin Smallwood has two conferences in mind.

Granted, one school seems to be in the best position to land the 6-foot-4, 225-pound prospect, but he remains very open to every school in the ACC and the Big East.

"A lot of schools are starting to get more interested from the ACC and the Big East. Syracuse, Maryland, Boston College and UConn are all very interested," he said. "I'm gonna do a lot of camps this summer. Hopefully I'll pick up a lot of offers. I'm not sure where I'm going yet but I'm either going to play in the ACC or the Big East."

UConn and UMass have offered the talented prospect, and the Huskies are in an enviable position.

"Right now I'm starting to like UConn a lot. You never know what can happen, though. When I first started out playing linebacker I was nervous, because in high school I played safety. I went up to watch film and everything they do with their linebackers is what I do in high school."

Does he believe any other schools are close to offering?

"I'm not even sure," he responded. "I think after I camp at BC, I'll get an offer from them. Maryland as well."
