Orlando (Fla.) Oak Ridge athlete Guito Ervilus, who claims over 20 offers, had planned to hit the road in June for some visits, but wasn't able to. He is hoping to change that in the near future.
"I haven't taken any trips yet," Ervilus said. "Me and my mom have been talking about it. We were supposed to go on some visits a couple weeks ago but weren't able to. We are going to try to schedule some soon to go on in a couple of weeks. Right now I am going to go to Florida State, Florida, and USF. Then at the end of the month we are hoping to go to a lot of other colleges like Louisville, Kansas, Ohio State, Illinois, and some others."
In late May, Ervilus named a top five of Florida, Florida State, Illinois, Kentucky, and Louisville. He says that those remain the top five programs in the hunt for his services, but claims no leader at this time.
Despite a torn ACL that sidelined him for a majority of his spring and will endanger his senior season on the field, the 6-foot-5, 225-pound athlete says that contact from schools remains consistent.
"Since the spring ended, really all of the schools have kept in contact with me," Ervilus said. "The ones that are showing the most interest in me are Florida, Florida State, USF, and Ohio State."
With regards to the injury, Ervilus feels he is making strides every day.
"I am doing great with rehab," Ervilus said. "At this point I think I am going to try to play (during his senior season). It will be all up to the doctors to clear me but the way I am going now I think I am going to be able to come back."
Ervilus said that as of now he believes he could receive medical clearance as early as September.
The Central Florida product is still hoping to graduate in December and enroll early at whichever college he opts for.
