Saint Clairesville (Ohio) High receiver Dan Monteroso, a Boston College commit, took an official visit to Purdue over the weekend and the Boilermakers program gave him plenty to think about regarding his college future.
“I’m going to go home, sit down and talk to my family and hopefully I can make a decision,” Monteroso said late Sunday morning. “Probably later this week.”
The 6-foot-3, 180-pound Monteroso has been a verbal to the Eagles going back to June but decided to look into other options following the coaching change. Purdue is the only other school he is considering. The Boilermakers also went through a coaching change and Darrell Hazell and his new staff are quickly making an impression.
“It went real well,” Monteroso started in on his visit.
“Just all the coaches there were real nice, and building a relationship with them is what made it awesome. Coach (Kevin) Sherman and I have had a relationship from when he recruited me at Virginia Tech. I got to know him better and it’s always good having someone there that you know.”
Monteroso also got to better know the players on Purdue’s team.
“I fit in well,” he said. “I went out with them (Saturday) night and had a good time. They’re all guys that want to win and they’re all buying into Coach Hazell.”
As a senior, Monteroso hauled in 68 passes for 1,400 yards and 25 touchdowns in helping lead his team to the state championship game. Other programs to offer includes Iowa, Bowling Green, Marshall and Ohio.
