ATH Napoleon recaps two visits

Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep athlete Brandon Napoleon recently visited two of the schools that have been showing a lot of interest, and on Sunday he recapped those trips.

Rutgers has offered Napoleon a scholarship while Maryland has shown serious interest.

The 6-foot, 175-pound athlete from St. Peter's Prep visited Rutgers a couple of weeks ago and was more recently at Maryland.

"The Rutgers trip was good," Napoleon recalled. "We went to the basketball game. It was fun. We had a good time. A couple of my teammates went and we had a good time.

"For the whole first two hours we were just there talking to the coaches. We just had a conversation. We were getting to know each other and were joking around."

The trip to Rutgers went well and the trip to Maryland seemed to be an equally positive experience, even though the Terrapins haven't offered.

"I just got back from Maryland yesterday," he said. "That was a junior day. It was great. I love Maryland's campus. I love how compact it is and how close together everything is.

"When I got there they showed me some love. They said they already knew who I was."

Michigan, LSU, Miami, UConn and Virginia Tech are some of the other schools showing interest in Napoleon.
