Damascus WR-OLB Zach Bradshaw gets his first scholarship offer, from Boston College

The first time Damascus sophomore wide receiver and outside linebacker Zach Bradshaw knew that Boston College was interested in recruiting him?

That would be Wednesday, when Damascus assistant coach Gregg Frazier called to say that he had spoken with the Eagles coaching staff and passed along the word that they wanted to offer Bradshaw a scholarship.

“I don’t know anything about them. I’m going to get the coach’s phone number from my coach and give him a call.”

Not that Bradshaw is off the radar. He had 28 catches for 401 yards and seven touchdowns last season and said he has been receiving interest from Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech, North Carolina State, Georgia Tech, Illinois and Iowa. He plans to visit Maryland on Saturday to watch the Terrapins’ practice and meet the coaching staff … and maybe get a scholarship offer there, too?

“I don’t know if anything will come of it, but it should be fun,” Bradshaw said.

Bradshaw is unsure what position he will play in college. If he can add 20 or 30 pounds to his frame, he might be a linebacker. Get a step quicker and he might play wide receiver. Similarly, he does not know where he might play.

“This is the beginning of the whole recruiting process,” he said. “Any school that has interest in me, I have interest in them right now.”
