Three-star athlete Brent Vinson out of Hampton (Va.) Phoebus has scheduled his first official visit to Virginia when they face off against Florida State. What made the 6-foot-1, 180-pounder with 4.39-second speed choose the Cavaliers?
"I want to go to the Florida State-Virginia game because it's an in-state school and I want to see what its like," he said. "I want to see if I'm comfortable there and I hope to see what the coaches intend to do with me as a player."
Vinson plans to take one of his other officials to Virginia Tech and also mentioned possibly going to North Carolina State and Michigan State.
"Virginia and Virginia Tech are my top two choices right now so I'll take visits to them," he said. "It's hard for me to schedule visits to schools with our games and college games being open at the same time."
A couple weeks back the three-star prospect visited North Carolina State for the Virginia Tech game.
"It was a really good game and North Carolina State passed the ball really well," he said. "I was just looking at how well North Carolina State and Virginia Tech threw it. I was also seeing how the defenses played, both played really well."
In the next two weeks, Vinson plans to visit Virginia Tech for the Ohio and Georgia Tech games.
"I know I'm going to those games as I want to look at my position on the field more," he said. "I want to see what they do with the wide receivers and cornerbacks. I also want to see how many pass plays Tech does on offense."
The No. 15 player in Virginia has received calls from lots of schools since September 1st.
"Michigan State, Al Groh from UVA, Beamer from Virginia Tech, Stewart from West Virginia and North Carolina State have called," he said. "They're all just seeing how I'm doing to make sure everything is going right with me."
Vinson and Phoebus kicked off the season a couple weeks back beating Woodrow Wilson 66-0.
"I scored two touchdowns, one on a 63-yard handoff and the other on a 50-yard catch," he said. "We only got to play in the first quarter and then my coach took out the first team offense and defense. I was happy with how I did, I had a pretty good day."
