Mount Si High School football news on a Saturday…..

Good Saturday morning. Small amount of news this morning, and once again, it concerns Mount Si High School football junior Andrew Edson, who received another college scholarship offer last night.

Edson once again, as has been his custom this week with the other college offers he’s received, announced on Twitter that the United States Military Academy in West Point, NY, made this offer. Army plays as a Football Bowl Subdivision school in the NCAA Division I and competes in the American Athletic Conference.

This offer is the fourth Edson’s received this week and eighth overall he’s picked up during his recruitment process. He’s also, as we’ve told you, received offers this week from Yale, Eastern Washington and Fresno State, and has previously been offered by San Jose State, Nevada, Montana State and Wyoming.

Good stuff for sure. Once again, as we’ve discussed, colleges are able to make offers to prospective recruits despite the current shutdown in recruiting imposed by the national college sports governing body in the wake of the current COVID-19 outbreak. This dead period along with other restrictions that have been imposed at the local and state government levels to deal with this are likely to prevent Edson from taking an official visit to the campus for some time. New York State is among those that has gone into a “shelter-in-place” mode as per an order from their governor, Andrew Cuomo.

We’ll see if Edson gets more offers. With all these offers, we’re going to go ahead and do a big spread on all this tomorrow, as we take a look at each program that has made an offer, and our thoughts on whether a particular program might be a good fit for Edson.

In a related note, one of Edson’s teammates also informed us of a prestigious camp opportunity he’ll be part of soon.

MSHS freshman Heath Ozaeta advised the SVSJ via social media last night he will be participating in an upcoming camp for offensive and defensive linemen being sponsored by Duke University in Durham, NC. The camp, called the “Big Man Camp”, is expected to give Ozaeta an opportunity to learn advanced techniques for his position, and to also be exposed to an NCAA Division I program, which Duke’s is in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The camp is part of a series of camps being run by Blue Devil head football coach David Cutcliffe, a longtime college Division I head coach.

The camp is scheduled for June 7, pending the resumption of normal activities with respect to the current COVID-19 situation.
