QB Caleb Scepaniak's stock rising


Junior quarterback Caleb Scepaniak (Vestal, N.Y./Seton Catholic) may have raised his stock at last weekend's U.S. Army All-American combine after making the All-Combine team as an honorable mention quarterback.

“I thought I stood out in the one-on-one drills,” Scepaniak said. “I thought I threw the ball real well. It was good competition. I think there were 500 kids overall, and a lot of great athletes.”

Scepaniak has scholarship offers from Buffalo, Cornell, Fordham and Wagner, and said he's receiving recruiting material from schools in the Big Ten, Big East and MAC.

“Penn State, Boston College, Syracuse, NC State, Duke, Iowa and UConn -- those are the ones that are showing the most interest,” Scepaniak said. “They all want me to go to their spring game.

“I used to live in Pennsylvania so Penn State was always my favorite school, but now I'm not so sure about that situation down there.”

Scepaniak, who is a shade over 6-foot-5, said he was invited to a Boston College junior day on Jan. 28, and plans to attend.

“I know his performance at the combine helped his confidence a lot,” Seton Catholic coach Todd Story said. “He was also real excited about the BC junior day. I'd say Darrell Wilson from Iowa is also a coach who seems to be very interested.”

Scepaniak is also a member of Seton Catholic's varsity basketball team.

“I like all the schools right now,” Scepaniak said. “I just know I'd feel most comfortable in the pro-style offense.”
