"I spent the most time talking to the coaches at Virginia," said Hazelton, who previously visited Charlottesville in February. "I got a really good feel for them, especially the wide receivers coach. UNC has a great campus and I talked with Pitt's wide receiver coach as well. They were all good trips, but Virginia really impressed my dad."

"I am considering all the schools that have offered. Virginia has an advantage because I've seen them twice now, but no decision has been made. I do want to decide soon if I can to get things over with."
Hazelton has also talked to Syracuse recently.
"They said they sent me an offer, so I'll have to call them and follow up on that," he said. "But I've had a chance to talk to the new staff and they sound like really nice people."
