Rivals250 Watch List member Ricky DeBerry has been visiting every school that he can. During the season the Richmond (Va.) St. Christopher's star has been visiting schools closer to home.
"I was at Virginia Tech last weekend to see the Maryland game," said the 6-foot-2, 237-pound DeBerry. "It was a good weekend. I wen there with my dad and some other recruits.
"I really like Virginia Tech's defense," he said. "I love Bud Foster. His defense is the type of defense I really want to play in. I was watching the defensive ends and outside linebackers and seeing how they were attacking the quarterback. I wasn't really looking at the outcome of the game."

The weekend before, DeBerry went to check out a Tar Heel game.
"North Carolina was great," DeBerry said. "I loved the atmosphere. I really want to get down there again to check out the campus some more. I talked to Coach Fedora and he wants to let me loose and let me play the bandit position."
DeBerry has about 50 scholarship offers so working his way down to a manageable number will be difficult.
"Right now I'm just looking at who wants me to play where and seeing where the schools sees me at," he said. "I'm also looking at the academics for each and which one will fit me based on what I want to major in. I still want to get out to some schools that I haven't been to before I narrow down my list.
"I'll probably narrow things down some time in the mid-spring or summer," said DeBerry. "I'll probably get down the somewhere around 10 or 15."
DeBerry already has his next two visits lined up.
"My mom loves Penn State so we're going up there for the Nebraska game," he said. "Next weekend we're going to South Carolina for the Clemson game.
"I haven't really had a chance to go down to South Carolina yet," DeBerry said. "I've been talking to Coach Adams and some of the other guys. I definitely want a chance to get a good game day atmosphere. My mom really likes South Carolina as well. We want to se the facilities and get a chance to talk to Steve Spurrier."
DeBerry was one of the few 2015 prospects to be invited to the 2013 Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge presented by Under Armour during the offseason.
