What's new with Koyack?

Junior tight end Ben Koyack already boasts an offer list that is just about as impressive as you will find among Class of 2011 prospects, and that list should only get bigger in the coming months.

We haven't heard too much from the 6-foot-5, 230-pound tight end from Oil City, Pennsylvania over the past couple of months, but things have been moving along just fine.

Oil City fell in the first round of the state playoffs, so that was a bit of a disappointment for Koyack. Individually the talented youngster caught 41 passes for 748 yards and six touchdowns, proving that he's one of the top junior tight ends in the nation.

South Carolina and Cal recently offered Koyack, joining the likes of Boston College, Maryland, North Carolina, NC State, Ohio State, Penn State, Pitt, Virginia Tech and West Virginia, as schools that have done the same.

"Recently I talked to a couple of coaches from West Virginia, because I went down there for their game against Pitt," he explained.

"It was a good trip because I'm interested in both schools. It was kind of nice to see them go head to head. I thought I would be leaning to one of them or the other, but I was kind of stuck. Each time one of the teams would make a good play I would kind of root for both of them."

Koyack hasn't scheduled any other trips, but did say he wants to make it out to Virginia Tech sometime soon. Why is that?

"I'm just looking at the other schools around the area, checking out their proximity and seeing what they have to offer."

Aside from his regular offseason lifting program with his teammates at Oil City, Koyack has been invited to multiple combines and recruiting events. He said he was unsure whether he would make it out to any such events.
