Hackensack, N.J. linebacker Jermaine Dias took his second official visit this past weekend and could be ready to decide as early as next week. So who leads?
"I guess you could say it's down to North Carolina and Virginia," said the 6-foot-3, 215-pounder who just took a trip to Chapel Hill, N.C. to check out the Tar Heels. "I liked North Carolina a lot, I think I could play early there and get a good education. I was hosted by Wallace Wright and I fit in well with the players."
Dias has already been to Maryland but the Terps appear out of the race. He visits Virginia this upcoming weekend (Jan. 17) and still has a visit to Boston College set for Jan. 24.
"Right now I might not need the BC visit," he said. "UVA and North Carolina have been my favorites for a while now so after my Virginia visit, I'll probably decide."
Dias is the No. 9 outside linebacker in the country and ranked as the No. 5 player in the state of New Jersey.
