Mizzell's recruitment picking up steam


2013 prospect Taquan Mizzell picked up his seventh scholarship offer this week.

Connecticut joins East Carolina, North Carolina State, Purdue, Vanderbilt, Virginia and Virginia Tech as schools that have extended official invites.

The 5-foot-9, 180-pound athlete from Virginia Beach (Va.) Bayside said he'll likely visit some schools soon but that no school is currently standing out from the pack.

“I'm going to see which colleges are the best fit for me,” Mizzell said.

Academics shouldn't be a concern with Mizzell. The ESPN 150 Watch List member recently posted a report card on Facebook in which he had four A's, an A- and a B+.
