Reports have surfaced that three-star wide receiver Deon Long out of Washington (D.C.) Dunbar may be taking visits. Rivals caught up with the 6-foot-0, 175-pounder to find out what he's up to.
"I am committed to West Virginia," he said. "I'm headed there for an official this weekend, on Saturday. I am looking at taking an official to Michigan State and Illinois. I haven't set date. I'm looking at doing it after the season.
"I just like the privilege to go to the campus and look around. They gave me a scholarship and I want to visit and see the facilities."
Long confirmed he is still committed to West Virginia though and discussed what he likes about the Mountaineers.
"I like the fact that they are throwing the ball 21 or 22 times a game even though Pat White is not a throwing quarterback," he said. "He's throwing the ball and that's a big change on the offense. They are recruiting people to do that, getting a pocket quarterback and deep threats who can catch the ball.
"I like the atmosphere there too. The fans were yelling my name, they are cool. I also like Coach Beatty. I have a bond there, he is a cool dude."
In the meantime, Long has posted approximately 1,000-yards receiving this season.
"I don't know my statistics exactly," he said. "I have absolutely gotten faster this year. I'm quick and I'm outrunning defenders."
