Named the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia has never lived up to that reputation when it comes…
Palmer Feeling The Love
"I really liked Connecticut a lot to tell the truth," Palmer said. "The coaches there showed me a lot of love the whole time I was there and were constantly talking to me. Coach SOS (Matt Cersosimo) and Coach (Randy) Edsall were both great guys and I really like Coach SOS a lot."
"The coaches showed me the stadium which I really liked and then took me over to walk me around campus and see the facilities," Palmer explained. "Their equipment was real nice and high tech stuff that I've never seen anywhere else before. They also had a game room and players' lounge that was decked out. Their facilities had everything in them right down to an indoor track, they were crazy."
As mentioned, Palmer already holds three offers from Maryland, West Virginia and North Carolina State and certainly has the talent to warrant many, many more. We talked to Palmer about whether he was offered by the staff this weekend and where Connecticut stacks up with the other schools in his recruiting picture.
"They didn't offer me, but they said it was only because I hadn't taken the SAT yet. They told me if my score is where it needs to be after I take the test in June they'll be offering. Coach Edsall and Coach Cersosimo also told me they'd be at my school on Wednesday. I could really see myself going to Connecticut because I really like the coaches and facilities there. I think they'll be one of my top schools."
