Mifsud waiting on Villanova

The recruiting process, however, is a tad cloudy for Dearborn quarterback Anthony Mifsud .
Mifsud has received an offer from Hillsdale — the school his father, Dearborn coach Dave Mifsud , attended — and says Delaware and Davidson remain in the picture.
But he’s hoping to receive an offer from Villanova.
“They’re a real good school academically,” he said. “I like their offense. They have their quarterbacks run a lot. As the season wore on I ran it more with quarterback traps and quarterback blasts. Villanova’s offense is like a spread. They have a zone read with a one-back and three receivers.”
Mifsud said Hillsdale “wants an answer by the 17th (of January). If I don’t hear from Villanova, I’m going to ask Hillsdale to extend their deadline to the 21st. And Davidson? I told them I would be interested if I don’t receive an offer from Villanova.”
Mifsud (6-4, 190) is No. 58 on the Blue Chip list, and is on Villanova’s B list.
According to Mifsud, Villanova is waiting to hear from its A list quarterback. He said that recruit is expected to take a visit to a different school this weekend, leaving Villanova in the dark until late Sunday or Monday.
Mifsud also was interested in attending Princeton, but officials received a commitment from their A list quarterback.
“Others told me I was on their second or third list,” Mifsud said. “I haven’t heard back from most of them.”
He has made an official visit to Hillsdale and liked what he saw.
“I really like their coach (Keith Otterbein ),” he said. “If I don’t go there, I don’t want to leave them hanging. When I talk to the coaches at Villanova this week, I’m not sure they will be able to tell me anything.”
