Sickels is a 2013 DE on the rise

Little Silver (N.J.) Red Bank Regional defensive end Garrett Sickels is one of the fastest-rising prospects in the Class of 2013 and the offers continue pouring in.

Sickels, a 6-foot-4, 225-pound defensive end, is sure to be ranked among the top Garden State prospects next year with early offers from Rutgers, Florida and Georgia already in.

He's on the road and checking out some schools before his season starts so when next year rolls around he isn't heading into the process blind.

"I have a trip to Florida tomorrow. I'm going there tomorrow for the first time," Sickels said on Sunday evening.

"Then on Tuesday I'm visiting Central Florida and then August 1, 2 and 3 I'm going back to Tennessee because the coaches are going to be there."

Sickels hasn't received verbal offers from UCF and Tennessee but it's probably a good bet that they will be coming in soon.

"I might give a few other schools some calls," he added.

Rutgers was the first school to offer the in-state prospect. Florida and Georgia followed the Scarlet Knights and are trying to make an early impression.
