Four-star linebacker Jermaine Dias of Hackensack, N.J. is still listing four favorites at this time. The 6-foot-2 and now 220-pound blue-chipper who runs a 4.6-second 40-yard dash has set up his first two official visits.
"I'm going to Boston College on Dec.6 and Maryland Dec. 13. And I plan on setting visits with North Carolina and Virginia."
Although Jermaine is playing defensive end at this time, he is being recruited as both an inside and outside backer depending on the school. He is extremely quick and has excellent lateral movement. So far in his first two games this season, he has recorded 20 solo tackles, six sacks, five pressures and two forced fumbles.
"I'm not sure if I'll take a fifth visit, right now I'm just concentrating on my top four. I like the coaches at those schools and the campuses at BC and UVA are beautiful."
Jermaine will most likely be in attendance for the Virginia-North Carolina game on Oct. 19 at UVA, but it would not be an official visit.
"I plan on going to the UVA for the game, and I might set up my official visit when I’m down there, I'll see how it goes.
So does he have a leader?
"No, I like them about the same. I'm impressed with the BC program, they are always solid and are ready to take the next step. They played Miami tougher than anyone has over the past two years. Virginia is also very consistent and I like the weather. Maryland and UNC I've liked for a while and that hasn't changed. My top four remain the same and with no particular order."
