Rasul Douglas is operating off a blueprint of sorts. He doesn't name frontrunners per se. he also doesn't have visit dates set in stone. The Nassau County (N.Y) Community College cornerback has a plan of sorts. But that, it seems, is always evolving.
His travel itinerary is a work in progress.
"There are a few schools I want to visit on officials," Douglas said. "Probably Tennessee, West Virginia, Florida State … that's all I know right now."
Originally from New Jersey, Douglas says the draw of East Coast-based colleges is non-existent. In fact, his roots work against it. Douglass wants out of the region. His FBS career will be an exercise in wing spreading.
"I've been here all my life, so I want to get away," Douglas said. "It's not bad. I just want to get away."
Douglas doesn't plan to take any visits prior to the start of his season. Instead, he intends to tour campuses during the fall. From there, a decision could come at any moment, as he has no timetable for a decision.
Even the checklist of things he's looking for in a school remains rough.
"I want to go get my degree, play football and have good coaches that are going to take care of me," Douglass said.
According to Douglas, the strength of his game is press coverage. All schools recruiting him plan to play him at corner back despite past experience playing safety.
A high three-star prospect, Douglas is ranked as the No. 21 junior college prospect in the country. He currently holds eight scholarship offers.
