Turelli Getting Looks
Posted Apr 29, 2012
Longsnapper Brendan Turelli is hearing from big time programs all over
Longsnapper generally isn't considered a position of extreme importance during the recruiting process, but if a school can get a good one, it can make a huge difference, and there may not be many better in the 2013 class than Phoenix (AZ) Arcadia's
"My recruitment is going well. No offers yet, but I’ve been hearing from
With Turelli still looking for that elusive first offer, schools want to see him in person before offering and he'll be hitting the road this summer in hopes of picking one up.
“All of those schools want me to come to their summer camps to see me in person.”
The 6-2, 240 pounder plays along the offensive line for Arcadia, but anticipates the longsnapping spot as his exclusive future position.
“Right now I play left tackle along with the longsnapping, but I’m probably not big enough to play on the offensive line at a school in a big conference.”
Not a lot of high school players aspire to be longsnappers, but Turelli has been groomed to do so since a young age and has really embraced it.
“Longsnapping is something my dad got me into when I was young. After my freshman year they brought me up to varsity for the playoffs and I’ve really just stuck with it.”
With Utah being one of the schools that has shown interest, Tureilli has been developing a relationship with the coaches and getting to know more about the school.
“I’ve been talking with Coach Finn and he’s a really great guy. It’s a great school and I’m happy that they made the move to the Pac 12 and a bigger conference. I also like how close it is to home so my family would get a chance to see me play."
Turelli's critieria for picking a school is different than most, and is one that may give the Utes an advantage.
“I’m looking for a place with a close proximity to home and I want to play in a cold weather place. I’ve grown up in the heat and want to try something different.”
Hoping to grab his first offer, Turelli has big plans for the summer with multiple camps and campus visits lined up and would like to get a commitment out of the way.
“I’ll be heading to Colorado for a camp in May and then a national camp in Wisconsin as well. Other than that, probably just go to the team camps. If I can pick up an offer, I’d preferably commit early but I don’t have any favorites at this time.”
