The 5-foot-10, 185-pound cornerback remains committed to Utah, but the Moutaineers and Wildcats have given him something to think about.
"Things are pretty solid with Utah, but I still want to weight my options," Hobbs said. "I still want to go out and see what's there to offer. Like at West Virginia, I'm taking a visit on the 31st just to go see if Utah is really where I want to go. So I'm keeping my options open and just weighing out the recruiting process."
Hobbs visit to West Virginia is not the only one on the schedule. In fact, the standout defender plans to visit Utah on Friday.
"I'm just looking forward to it being just like home," Hobbs said. "I'm hoping to be somewhere comfortable, and I can see myself being there for four to five years."
He is unsure if he will be able to take a visit to Kansas State right now with only two weekends left before signing day.
In addition to his official visit, Hobbs is in the process of hosting coaches from Utah, Kansas State, and West Virginia. His most recent visit was from Utah.
"Utah just left yesterday," Hobbs said. "That went great. It went smooth. We talked a lot about football and a lot of positive things. It felt really comfortable."
Before Utah was a visit by West Virginia.
"Everything went smoothly," Hobbs said. "The night before I was so anxious they were coming I actually stayed up all night and over slept and was running late. When I got there he was like I'm happy I did wait because you're a great athlete and well-spoken and mature and it just went perfect. We had a long, deep conversation and I'm looking forward to him coming out on Tuesday."
Kansas State's defensive ends coach, Blake Sellers, plans to visit Hobbs soon.
