For most of his high school career, Ben Castellano (2019 TE 6-4 225) has been one of the most highly regarded tight ends in the state.
His shortened junior season saw him pile up up 61 catches for 804 yards and 9 touchdowns for a Woodgrove team that went 6-4 in 2017, ending a five-year run of playoff appearances. The Wolverines took their first loss, and only loss of 2016 in the twelfth game of the season for an 11-1 finish.
That gives Castellano and his Woodgrove squad some motivation as Ben comes into his senior season.
In his recruitment, Ben attracted Ivy League interest and interest from all manner of Division I schools. Yale, Harvard, Princeton and Brown threw their hats into the ring, along with scholarship offers from Syracuse, Indiana, Marshall, Army, Navy, Temple, Georgia State, Richmond and Cincinnati.
On August 9, Ben made his verbal commitment to the University of Richmond.
