Weston (Fla.) Cypress Bay safety Marquese Dudley-Gordon wants to take all five of his official visits and he already has a pretty good idea of where he will be going for two of them.
"I'm going to take my official visits during the season and I'm definitely going to take a visit to Arkansas and to Pittsburgh. I'm also really liking NC State right now too but I'm not sure about the other three schools," he said.
With Arkansas and Pittsburgh grabbing two of his officials, Dudley-Gordon shared his thoughts about both programs.

"Arkansas is a really good school. I've lived there before so I'm not going to get homesick. They have one of the best defensive coordinators in the nation at Arkansas and it's a really great school. I like the way they work and their effort.
"Pittsburgh is a great city and it's similar to downtown Fort Lauderdale or Miami. It's a great city. The only thing that's different is it's really cold and there are mountains. Pittsburgh is a great school and you'll get a great education there. My brother Shane Gordon goes there and he's let me know a couple of things. My mom goes up there to visit my brother. The coaches are great and they really try to be a family to their own players. I like Pittsburgh's education and the way they help their players. They'll make sure you get a tutor and make sure they do things right."
If NC State is lagging behind Arkansas and Pittsburgh it may not be by much and the Wolfpack have made a swift rise up his list.
Helping the Wolfpack is that Matt Dayes, a running back from Cypress Bay last year, signed with NC State earlier this year.
"I really haven't followed up as much on them because I just started liking them and talking to them more this week," Dudley-Gordon said. "But the coaches seem really cool and I like the defensive coach that's recruiting me. I'm finding out things about them."
Dudley-Gordon claims 27 total offers. The only camp he attended this summer was Miami's where he claimed MVP honors for the defensive backs in attendance.
