Brian Lemelle

Bishop McDevitt High (Harrisburg, Pa.) receiver Brian Lemelle has two visits set and a third on the horizon, and he spoke with FOXSportsNEXT about those schools.

Bishop McDevitt High (Harrisburg, Pa.) receiver Brian Lemelle is readying for busy week, and which he will make two official visits in seven days, and he has a third tentatively set.

The 5-foot-11, 170-pound Lemelle will begin an official visit to Connecticut on Monday, then will begin an official visit to Iowa on Jan. 25. He added he is looking at a Feb. 1 official visit to Temple before making a decision prior to Feb. 6 signing day.

"I'm going to get a couple out of the way and hopefully (be closer) to a decision," Lemelle said.

Lemelle is coming off a senior season in which he caught 99 passes for 1,600 yards and 12 touchdowns, and Connecticut's staff is in contact with him more than any other one.

"We talk a lot and on Facebook," he said. "They say they need wide receivers and the offense needs to be more explosive, and they say I can be a part of it."

Lemelle said he recently spoke with Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz and assistant Darrell Wilson, who recruits the region for the Hawkeyes.

"We talked, and coach Ferentz tells me they're bringing in a quarterback and they are ready to pass the ball a lot more," Lemelle said. "They say I could fit well into the offense there."

Temple's staff under new coach Matt Rhule is also making a push for Lemelle, and right now he plans on making a visit.

"I heard from them a couple of weeks ago after the new coach was hired," Lemelle said. "I'm interested in learning more about them."
