Scelfo back home to Louisiana?

BOGART, GA.-The Scelfo family may have left the State of Louisiana but the question now is will one of them be returning home to play college football.

Sonny Dykes and the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs sure hope so.

Joseph Scelfo is high on the Bulldogs radar for the Class of 2012. The 6-2, 276-pound center from North Oconee High School in Georgia has an offer from Dykes and his staff in addition to scholarship offers from multiple other schools.

"Right now needless to say I'm staying pretty busy," Scelfo said. "Coaches of course cannot call right now so I'm getting a ton of letters and facebook messages. It's been pretty hectic.

"There are a few schools that are really seeming to give me a lot of attention right now. Southern Mississippi, South Alabama, Louisiana Tech and Louisiana-Monroe are really staying in touch a lot."

Having grown up for most of his life in the State of Louisiana, Scelfo admitted that the Bayou State schools may have a home-field advantage when it comes to recruiting him and this includes Dykes and his program.

"I still have a lot of ties to the State of Louisiana," Scelfo said. "I have been to the Ruston campus before and I have liked what I have seen. Add to that the fact that I would have the chance to come in and compete for early playing time and they (Tech) really are seeming like an ideal place that I may end up deciding to continue my football career at.

"My last trip to Ruston was actually about a month-and-a-half ago. It was a good refresher of what I remembered about the campus. I don't know if I will be camping there again or anything like that this summer. I know enough about Louisiana Tech and what they have to offer."

A projected center on the collegiate level, Scelfo said that he still hasn't put together a list of his top schools but will have to start very soon because he wants to have his decision before the start of his senior year.

"No top five for me yet," Scelfo said. "Tech, Monroe, UAB, Southern Mississippi are all saying things I like. "But honestly I'm still wide open. What I do know is that I want to get this thing done before I start my senior year in high school so I can enjoy my senior year and my senior football season."
