Fort Myers (Fla.) Estero offensive tackle Randy Hand might be down to just two schools.
"We liked North Carolina alot," said Hand's father. "We just got back on Monday. North Carolina reminded us alot of Virginia. It's a very clean, nice area with knowledgeable football fans and good academics. Virginia still leads but North Carolina is right behind them."
Hand will visit Virginia on Dec. 14 instead of this weekend due to their late return from North Carolina.
"We might visit Miami this weekend if we can because it's only two hours away," he said. "I think it's best we wait a week before taking another long trip. Randy might make up his mind after the Virginia visit and decide between Virginia and North Carolina."
Hand, one of the nation's most dominant offensive lineman, is the top target of many schools at the position. The Hands have dropped Michigan from their list (too far) and still have tentative dates with Florida (Jan. 11) and South Carolina (Jan. 18).
"We still might take all of the visits, we're not sure," he said. "Right now Virginia is in the lead and a different coach will be visiting us every day this week. Virginia is a great area and has excellent academics. It's also not too far away."
