Hand schedules visits, names leader

"As of now I have my official visits set up," Philadelphia (Pa.) West Philadelphia defensive lineman Derrell Hand said. "But I'm not sure of the exact dates."
"One is in November. Michigan State is in November. Wisconsin, Miami, and Iowa are in December. I have one for Notre Dame in January. I'm just not really sure of the exact dates."
"It's down to those five. All five offered me a scholarship. I'm not sure, but I believe I'll take all five visits."

When asked if he had been watching any of the teams he is interested in on television Hand said, "I caught a little of the second half of Wisconsin's game Saturday. And I saw a little bit of Notre Dame's game. I was impressed with Wisconsin. They're looking like they're going to do something this season."
Asked if he has a favorite at this point, Hand said, "Notre Dame a little."
