With early offers from Syracuse and Richmond, Omar Truitt is happy with where his recruitment is right now, but the 2014 cornerback from Washington D.C., is still looking for more.
“It feels good, but right now, honestly I feel like I can get more and I will be getting more,” the 5-foot-11, 180-pounder from St. John’s College High School said.
“It does feel good to have two under my belt right now.”
He’s had heavy interest from schools like Vanderbilt, Rutgers, Boston College, Cincinnati and Marshall and believes they could be among his next offers.
“I’m anxious,” he acknowledged. “I’m ready to see what comes in. I know the offers are going to start coming in heavy and I can’t wait.”
He’s visited Penn State already and is looking at getting farther away soon.
“Mississippi State invited me to their Junior Day next Saturday, so I will be attending that,” he said.
He’d also like to visit Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, UCLA and Notre Dame. The Irish have shown some interest and should receive a visit.
“They’ve been sending me a lot of mail, a lot, a lot of mail,” Truitt said of the Irish. “They sent me their practice schedule and they want me to come up to their school. I talked to my dad about it and he said Notre Dame is a school we will be going to.”
Truitt isn’t sure when he’ll be making the trip to South Bend, but is looking forward to seeing the “great tradition.”
Truitt, who has been clocked at 4.5 in the 40-yard dash, is being looked at primarily as a corner, but has also played running back and Wildcat quarterback.
“Coaches like that I’m an athlete,” he said. “They like that they can put me anywhere on the field and I can be a playmaker.
“They like that I’m aggressive. I built my aggression up this past year and they like how I have a knack for the ball, my ball skills. I’ll get the ball wherever it is. They like my size also.”
Truitt isn’t in a rush to make a decision, but does have a few factors that he’ll be weighing when he does.
“Opportunity, tradition, alumni connections, academics. I’m looking for something I can fall back on whether I make it to the NFL or not. Also, would I still like the school even if the coaching staff left.”
