Virginia Tech has over a half dozen offers out to 2009 prospects and so far all of them have been in-state. That has changed as Tech has offered at least one defensive end out-of-state in the 2009 recruiting class.

"He has three written offers from Maryland, Rutgers and Virginia Tech," Charles Stanley said, the father of 6-foot-2, 250-pound defensive end Sean Stanley. "He got the one from Maryland on September 1st and then three or four days later Virginia Tech's came and Rutgers was two or three weeks ago."

The Gaithersburg, Md. end originally grew up a fan of LSU and even lived down there for awhile. Do they have an advantage in regards to his recruitment?

"He moved up last year from there and took visits around the campus, met the recruiting director on a visit. I know they were very impressed with his film," he said. "If LSU offered last year and he could have made a decision, he would have jumped at it. I know he was impressed with their facilities.

"Now, since he's been here for awhile he really doesn't have a leader. It's even; he wants to wait and see what other offers come and take some official visits next season. I think he is really interested in all the schools recruiting him. He's getting stuff from Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Connecticut, Duke and Stanford."
