McSorley has Offers

Trace McSorley had a great junior season. The 2014 Ashburn (Va.) Briar Woods quarterback helped lead his team to a state championship.

Junior quarter Trace McSorley helped Briar Woods High School win their straight state championship last fall. The Falcons dominated all year long.

"We won our third state championship in a row and had an undefeated season – 15-0," said McSorley. "Our offense scored 640 points during the year and our defense gave up under 50."

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound quarterback's play did not go unnoticed.

"I have offers from Boston College, UMass, and a small school in San Antonio – the University of Incarnate Word," he said.

Several other schools have reached out to McSorley.

"I'm hearing from North Carolina, UVA, Wake Forest, Rutgers, Nebraska, Penn State, Missouri, Maryland, Indiana, and a little bit from Michigan State."

Which school could be the next to offer?

"If I had to guess, I would probably say North Carolina – that's the school I've had the most contact with – or Maryland," he said.

The Briar Woods' standout was able to visit Boston College, James Madison, and Maryland last fall. One of those visits really impressed the junior signal-caller.

"Boston College was pretty cool," said McSorley. "I went to the game where they were honoring the "Wounded Warriors", so they had cool uniforms on and the atmosphere was a lot better than I expected. It wasn't a big game, but it was a cool atmosphere and a good game to go visit."

McSorely remains wide open with his recruitment. He said he unsure about college visits over the next few months, but does have one thing planned.

"I've gotten a couple of invites to junior days, but haven't locked down anything," he said. "I'm going to San Antonio for the U.S. Army Combine, though."

McSorley will also go to some camps this year.

"I'll also probably try to go to camps at few schools and probably one of the Elite 11 and Nike camps," he said.

Going into the offseason, the Briar Woods' star is focused on becoming a better player.

"I'm working to get stronger and faster," said McSorley. "I really want to improve my speed. My 40 is at about a 4.5 now, but I want to get it to a consistent 4.4."

During his junior campaign, McSorley threw for 2,500 yards and 33 touchdowns. He also ran for 745 yards and 9 touchdowns.
