Third offer for 2015 DE

Defensive end Ryan Buchholz of Malvern (Pa.) Great Valley is enjoying a successful season on the field, and as a result is already seeing increased recruiting interest. His third offer came in last night from an ACC school and he will be taking a visit tomorrow to another ACC school in hopes of grabbing his fourth.

Already with offers from Rutgers and Virginia, Buchholz added his third offer from Boston College last night.

"Yesterday at practice my coach told me that they called and were very interested," he said. "Then one of their coaches contacted me last night and asked to call him. He said they loved me, really want me to come up there and that they are offering."

Buchholz, 6-foot-6 and 230 pounds, shared his thoughts on his most recent offer.

"I've watched them on TV a lot and they are a great team that plays other great teams every week," he said.

A number of other schools have also been showing increased interest.

"I've recently gotten a lot of interest from Michigan State, Vanderbilt, Maryland, Stanford and Nebraska, but Penn State, Northwestern and Temple are all still very interested," he said.

Buchholz has yet to take a visit this fall but will change that tomorrow when he makes his way to Maryland.

"They are playing Clemson and it's their homecoming so it's already sold out which is awesome," he said. "I just want to meet a lot of the coaches and get to know them because I talk to a coach every Monday and he says they are going to offer soon."

There are no additional visits planned after Maryland, but Buchholz does have one school in mind.

"I have no idea yet, but Michigan State really wants me to go visit sometime in December so hopefully I can make it out there," he said.

His impressive play on the field this fall has definitely sped up the recruiting process for Buchholz.

"I actually got my stats a few days ago," he said. "Most teams we play run away from me, but I have 51 tackles, eight sacks, six blocked passes and two touchdowns as a tight end. I've definitely improved getting past my blocks and getting to the quarterback faster."

Buchholz has led his team to a 6-2 start heading into their game against Unionville tonight as they battle for a higher playoff seed.
