Felder looking at six

Monroeville (PA) Gateway athlete Brendon Felder is one of the most versatile players in the northeast and some lucky school will be getting a commitment from him in the future.

Is Syracuse still in the race to land a commitment from the Keystone State product?

"I am looking at them, but I have not been talking to them that often. I am starting to look at different schools and they are getting higher and higher, but Syracuse is still on my list at this time."

Felder, 5-foot-11, 163 pounds told back in June that he was going to try and camp with the Orange, unfortunately that trip was not taken.

"I actually did not end up going up there. I went to North Carolina that was the only camp I could get to."

Dan Conley recruits Western Pennsylvania for Syracuse and is leading the charge for the three star prospect. Felder thinks that he and Conley have a solid relationship, but there is room for improvement.

"My relationship with Coach Conley has actually been a good relationship we email each other back and forth and we have talked on the phone a few times. We have a good relationship it could be better, but we have a good relationship."

The Orange may have slipped a little bit in the mind of Felder, but he still feels he would be a great impact player if he were to end up in Syracuse.

"I like that I could come into Syracuse and be a great impact to the team and I know that they are a program on the rise."

Illinois offered Felder back in June, but they were not the last school to offer. Recently a program from the ACC became his newest offer.

"My last offer was from Maryland. I have thirteen now."

With Maryland coming in as the latest school to offer and Syracuse possibly fading back in the picture does Felder have a list of top schools?

"I think I am at a top six right now North Carolina, Illinois, Pittsburgh, Boston College, Maryland, and Syracuse."

The summer is about to come to an end for most high school football players, but in the case of Felder he stayed busy and had a productive couple of months.

"The summer is going good. I am taking the summer right now to look at the offers and see what I have and think of what school is better for me. I also have been getting ready for the season with my team. We have just been at school running and we have had a lot of 7-on-7's. I've been working with coaches trying to improve my techniques for the upcoming year."

A decision could come soon or drift into the football season depending on if other offers come his way.

"If I don't make a decision before the season it will be after the first couple of games probably."
