Hampton (Va.) Phoebus wide receiver Romond Deloatch took an official visit this past weekend. The three-star prospect went to Temple and discussed what he does from here.
"I haven't quite made a decision," he said. "It seems to be getting out a lot and I don't know how that is, but I'm not committed at this time.
"I'm going to wait until Virginia Tech comes down to see me on Tuesday to see what they will be saying and whether it'll benefit me."

Temple is certainly in a good position at this state though.
"Virginia Tech is a good school, but I liked the city, it's nice and the campus is big at Temple," he said. "It's a good area and the people around there are nice. Everyone is amazing, I just liked it all the way around."
What did he do on the visit?
"I talked to the coaches and went out with the other recruits out there," he said. "Basically I did what you do on an official visit, I hung out with some of the players, went to a basketball game and just had a good time."
Deloatch was hosted on the visit by Malcolm Eugene and Marcus Green.
"It was good with them," he said. "They both showed me around and showed me a good time."
Overall, Temple certainly helped themselves.
"What stuck out to me the most was that the coaches really, really liked me," he said. "I felt like out of all the schools, their coaches really want me, they care about me and that has nothing to do with North Carolina, Cincinnati or Virginia Tech, they all have good coaches too, but these coaches really seem special. They talked about how I can come in and play as a true freshman. Plus, they don't have a dominant receiver. They are a running team and their coach is from Florida and they are going to open it up to four wide. They want to throw the ball more and I felt like I could be the man as a true freshman like Sammy Watkins."
Rounding out the trip, how was his time with the coaches?
"It went well, there was nothing bad about them. They just want to see me improve not just at Temple, but wherever I go. They know I'm a good student-athlete."
A decision has yet to come for Deloatch as he is waiting to see what'll happen with the Hokies.
"Virginia Tech's coaches are coming to the school on Tuesday," he said. "We'll know what's going to happen then when they come by and what I'll do."
