Chatham (Va.) Hargrave Military wide receiver Vidal Hazelton took his final official visit this past weekend, this one to Penn State. The Nittany Lions just entered the race for the No. 2 wideout in the country, so where do they stand following his visit?
"I had a good time there, it was cool," said the 6-foot-3, 195-pounder. "I was hosted by Terrell Golden and hung around a lot of the players. I think I could possibly start as a true freshman there because they need wide receivers still and I like the stadium and facilities. It was finals week so it wasn't as crazy as other visits, but it was cool."
Hazelton spoke to Derrick Williams quite a bit.
"Derrick and I talked a lot when I was there last time too," he said of an unofficial visit he took this past season. "He told me why he picked Penn State and that he saw that the team could compete for a national title. They had a great season this year and freshmen played a big part."
Where does Penn State amongst his favorites?
"I would put them right up there even with Miami and USC," he said. "Miami and USC are more city and there's a lot more to do, but Penn State is a football place. Football is No. 1 there and the fan support is great."
"We all had a good time and knew each other," he said. "I knew LeSean from some camps and from our visit to Virginia Tech and me and Mo have been friends for a long time. I knew about Andrew before and we hit it off."
What's next for Hazelton?
"I'm hoping to take an unofficial to Georgia this weekend," he said. "I'm not sure if I can though so we'll see. I'm announcing my decision at the U.S. Army All-American Game in San Antonio so I'll figure things out then. I'd like to see Georgia first but if I can't I'll decide between Miami, USC, Penn State and Virginia Tech."
