Felder transferring schools

Class of 2010 running back Brandon Felder made a name for himself and has a lot of good memories from his time at Danvers (Mass.) St. John's Prep. He has since moved on to another school in a different state, where he hopes to improve upon his performance and start to earn offers.

The 5-foot-10, 170-pound back recently transferred to Monroeville (Pa.) Gateway and is enjoying the move thus far.

"It wasn't really a decision I made," Felder said. "We just moved to the area. Most of our family is here. It was the best academic school in the area and that's what my dad was looking for.

"We actually moved after the season so I didn't play (football) with them. We're starting up basketball, though, and I'll probably do that here."

While the change will require a period of adjustment and a lot of things are in flux, Felder has still been able to focus some of his energies on the recruiting process.

"I talked to Boston College and they said they were going to come see me after all the games are over. Since I just moved to Pennsylvania, when Maryland came by to my old school I wasn't there. They wanted to come talk to me but they said they'll do that as soon as possible."

Felder will be attending the U.S. Army All-American combine in San Antonio in January and hopes to showcase his skills there. If he performs well his first offers might start to come in. He's hoping he has plenty of schools to choose from, but he has one school at the front of his mind.

"Right now Boston College is my number one choice," he said. "I've always been a BC fan so they're definitely at the top.

"I'm also getting letters from Nebraska and Oregon. They've been talking to me a little bit. I'd really like to hear from Penn State, too."
