QB McSorley has first scholarship offer

Trace McSorley has his first scholarship offer.

Boston College is the first school to extend an offer to the quarterback from Ashburn (Va.) Briar Woods. The invitation has been a long time coming for the 2014 prospect. The 6-foot, 176-pound McSorley said he first visited B.C. three months ago.

“Got to meet the coaches and I really enjoyed getting to watch practice and see the facilities and talk to the coaches,” McSorley stated via text message to ESPN. “I've been in contact with (defensive line and special teams) coach Al Washington ever since then and I really like him. He's a really cool guy and a great coach.

McSorley said he plans to visit Boston again to get to know more of the coaching staff. He said he's already grown fond of B.C.'s campus.

“It's a great school academically, which is a huge thing for me,” he said.

McSorley is also being recruited by Penn State. He said he hasn't had a lot of contact with the Nittany Lions but plans to visit Happy Valley.

“I know they have a great tradition and always have a great program so I've always wanted to get up there and check them out,” McSorley said.

This could be the second consecutive season that Briar Woods High School produces a top-flight prospect. Linebacker Matt Rolin will be a senior this fall. The ESPN 150 prospect recently committed to South Carolina.
