Three lead for Page

Bronx (N.Y.) Christopher Columbus defensive tackle Al Page is still sitting on three offers and he's busy making plans for the coming months.

Page will attend a spring practice at Maryland on March 27. He will also be attending Rutgers' spring game on April 24.

The junior defensive tackle has also committed to visiting Penn State at some point.

In addition to making those plans he said he has been speaking to coaches from Miami, Lousville, West Virginia and Marshall lately. He holds offers from Syracuse, Rutgers and Maryland, but his list of favorites doesn't quite mirror that.

"My favorites are Rutgers, Maryland and Penn State in that order," Page told Rivals.com this weekend.

"Rutgers is real close to home and I've been there on an unofficial visit. I'm real comfortable with the atmosphere there and the coaches are straightforward with you. I hung out with some of their teammates and they welcomed me with open arms. I really liked the feeling at Rutgers.

"I haven't visited Maryland but they've been looking at me since my sophomore year. I love their defensive line coach. Just talking to him on the phone gets me pumped up. I've got a feeling that it's a good program. I'm going to go over there on the 27th to see what it's all about.

"As for Penn State, to me their name speaks for itself. It's a winning program and it's not far from home. They produce a lot of NFL first round picks. It's a good school. Going to Penn State would open up a lot of opportunities."
