Offers piling up for New York WR

About a month ago Devon Cajuste had to like the position he was sitting in.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound receiver from Flushing (N.Y.) Holy Cross had picked up offers from Rutgers and Syracuse, so barring something unforeseen he already knew he would have the opportunity to take his game to the Division I level.

In the last month his scholarships have doubled from two to four, so his position has improved significantly.

Boston College and Maryland are the latest schools to offer him a scholarship. The offer from BC came in about a month ago and Maryland's came in sometime last week.

"I'm definitely interested in them," Cajuste said of the new schools to offer. "But I'm actually interested in all of the schools right now. No one school is ahead of the others."

Cajuste wants to continue to visit schools and gather information before he trims his list or talks about favorites, as many other prospects do. He has taken three visits over the past month and each was helpful.

"I went to UConn for a spring practice and I really liked it. I liked that it was new and updated and I like the vibe it gives. It's very welcoming. Their coaches said they were just waiting until September (before they offer).

"I went to Boston College as well and I liked that. I felt very welcomed there as well. I enjoyed the family-like feature there."

Cajuste also visited Harvard and said the Ivy League route is a possibility because academics will be the biggest factor in his decision.

He said he does "not have a clue" as to when he will be making his decision.
