Contact increasing between Bridge, coaches

Berwyn (Pa.) Conestoga wide receiver Dexter Bridge is still sitting on the two offers that he has had for quite some time but NC State and Illinois aren't the only schools that are interested.

The 6-foot-2, 184-pound receiver appears to be interested in both the Wolfpack and the Illini but he wants to see what else is out there before he makes his decision.

"The only college I've been able to get through to so far was Rutgers," Bridge explained, referring to the time since the contact period opened back up at the start of this month.

"I talked to coach [P.J.] Fleck about my game [Friday] night. I called Syracuse and North Carolina State but unfortunately they didn't answer so I'll be giving them a call later.

"I'm also looking to call Illinois, Boston College, Virginia and Miami."

Bridge said he is hoping to take some official visits but he isn't sure where he wants to go yet.

Of the schools that have not offered he said Rutgers is probably showing the most interest at this point.

"They're definitely telling me to keep in contact with them," he said. "Hopefully something will work out there. I've been sending e-mails to the coach from Miami and it's the same thing with Boston College. I've been keeping in touch with Illinois and Virginia said they would watch me throughout the season.

"Hopefully after the first three games they'll evaluate me."
