Plymouth's Silva to transfer

ESPN's Roger Brown reports on his blog today that Plymouth native Jason Sylva, a Class of 2012 linebacker prospect, will transfer out of Tabor Academy.

Sylva, who repeated his sophomore year at the Marion, Mass. campus after transferring from Plymouth South, said he is considering New Hampton (N.H.), Tilton (N.H.), Trinity-Pawling (N.Y.) and Cheshire Academy (Conn.).

"I do my school work, it's just really tough academically [at Tabor]," Sylva told Brown. "I had a good season here, but I still don't have any offers. Some of those places have produced quite a few [FBS] players."

UConn, Rutgers, Monmouth and Temple are among the Division 1 schools showing the most interest in Sylva. Boston College has shown interest, but Silva told Brown "academically they're not sure" about him.
