Philips Exeter's Shorey hoping for BC offer

ESPN's Roger Brown checks in today on the East Recruiting Blog with Philips Exeter tight end/defensive end Cameron Shorey, a Calais, Maine resident who could end up being one of the few prospects from the Pine Tree State that ends up playing FBS level football.

The 6-foot-5, 235-pound Shorey is currently considering UNH, Villanova and UMaine. But he's holding out hope for a late scholarship offer from Boston College.

Brown writes:

“I'm waiting to hear from BC,” he said. “They told me I'm their on-deck guy for a scholarship. If BC offers it's a school I would strongly consider.”

Shorey enrolled at Phillips Exeter (Exeter, N.H.) in 2010 with the intent of pursuing a Division I basketball career, but returned to the football field last fall.

“I missed football, and I didn't get the offers to play basketball that I was hoping for,” he said. “I'm certain now that football is the sport that will be in my future.”

Shorey said he will take an official visit to New Hampshire this weekend, and will visit Maine and Villanova later this month. New Hampshire and Maine are recruiting him as a tight end. Villanova would like him to play defensive end.

BC also showed interest in Shorey as a tight end.

“I like all three schools,” Shorey said. “I'd say it's an even playing field right now. I think the official visits are going to carry a lot of weight.”
