Four-star quarterback Erik Ainge (6-6, 200, 4.6) Hillsboro (Ore.) Glencoe has returned from his visit from Oregon and he has a definite leader for his services.
“Tennessee is still in first,” Ainge said. “I could possibly make my decision before Christmas or maybe in a month.” Though Tennessee has a decided edge, Ainge is still thinking of all the positives of all the programs that he visited.
Ainge has more allotted visit and Oregon State was the school that was lined up for his final trip.
“I have taken four visits,” Ainge said. “I’m not sure if I will take my last visit. This may be it.”
ASU head coach Dirk Koetter will be in the Ainge household on Thursday. UCLA was in house last week.
What does Ainge like about Tennessee?
“The quarterback situation and the players who will be surrounding me,” Ainge said. “I also like the coaching staff a lot.”
Ainge finished the season throwing for 3,049 yards and 24 touchdowns while completing 209 passes on 344 attempts for a completion percentage of 60.8.
