Four-Star Virgil eyes three

Mesquite (Texas) West Mesquite four-star quarterback Chason Virgil holds offers from the likes of Arizona State, Auburn, Clemson, Colorado, Missouri, Nebraska, Texas, UCLA, Mississippi State, and Boise State, but he now has his options narrowed down to three schools.
Auburn, Clemson, and Arizona State make up his top three, and he plans to make a decision in the very near future.
"I've narrowed it down to some schools but I'm getting ready to take my last visit to Auburn next weekend," Virgil said. "When I get back from there it will be just me looking at the pros and cons of each school at that point."
Virgil does not claim a favorite between his top three right now, but he knows that will change soon. He plans to announce his decision at West Mesquite's spring game on May 20.
For now all three programs are equal on his list with each giving him plenty to think about when it comes to making his decision.
What stands out about Arizona State?
"It's a great program," Virgil said. "They kind of run a similar system to Auburn and Clemson. Another thing that puts them up there is they play in a big conference and I feel as though I'll have a chance to play."
And the Auburn Tigers?
"Auburn has always been a school of mine that I've liked," Virgil said. "I always wanted an Auburn offer and that's always been a school I've liked very much. It just so happens they're one of the best programs in the nation as well."
What about Clemson?
"They have a very explosive offense but they were also the first school to offer me and that means a lot," Virgil said. "Through this whole recruiting process, me and coach Morris have built a great relationship. That's one of the reasons they're up there at the top."
After his visit to Auburn next weekend, Virgil knows he will have to make some tough decisions, but he knows what he is looking for most in his future college home.
"The top factors for me are is it a home away from home, some place I know I'll get pushed by my peers to make me a better player," Virgil said. "A place I'll have talent around me for us to win games, and great coaches as well who will stay on me and never let me get complacent that way I can be at the top of my game every day."
