Good Counsel juniors Kendall Fuller, Dorian O’Daniel and Kirk Garner have plenty of options

At least one of Good Counsel’s stable of standout defensive players plans on going away for college.

The options for junior linebacker Dorian O’Daniel and junior defensive backs Kirk Garner and Kendall Fuller continue to grow.

While none of the three is particularly far along in the recruiting process, the 5-foot-11, 175-pound Garner plans to head out of the area. He holds 11 scholarship offers, including Maryland, West Virginia, Navy, Florida State, Boston College, North Carolina State, Purdue, Cincinnati and Ohio.

“I plan on going out-of-state,” Garner said. “On the ride home from [Saturday’s game in] Delaware, my uncle asked me why I didn’t want to go to Maryland. Every kid’s dream for college is to go away from home. But I’m open to anybody.

“In the past week, 10 people have asked me what college I want to go to, even my family. I have no idea. I want to take some visits. There is a lot of time for me to make my decision.”

O’Daniel, who is 6-1 and 200 pounds, has had quite an impact on defense this season. Previously known only as a running back, he has been the Falcons’ best linebacker, according to Coach Bob Milloy. Rutgers, Wisconsin and Iowa have recently offered O’Daniel and he said that Florida and Michigan State also have shown interest, though he has not had a chance to ask what position those schools want him to play.

“Hopefully I get a chance to sit down with my coaches and ask,” he said.

O’Daniel also has scholarship offers from Maryland, Virginia, N.C. State, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Purdue, Wisconsin and Ohio.

Fuller, who is 6-0 and 181 pounds, holds 10 scholarship offers, including Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Florida, Florida State, Ohio State and Notre Dame.
