Hampton (Va.) Kecoughtan linebacker Jerod Mayo took one of his two remaining visits this weekend. Mayo, a four-star outside linebacker, has a solid top four schools. Did he leave Knoxville, Tenn. with a leader?
"No, but I was impressed with what I saw at Tennessee," said the 6-foot-2, 214 pound standout who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.62 seconds.
Mayo was hosted by Antwan Stewart.
"He is from Virginia, so that made me feel comfortable. I really like the people down there. The facilities are incredible and the stadium is the biggest I have ever seen. Tennessee has that football feel about it. Everyone down there knows everything about Tennessee football. The coaches are great and I feel good about the education I would get at Tennessee."
Does Jerod have a favorite?
"No, I am open right now. My favorites are Virginia, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, and North Carolina State. The in-state schools may have a slight advantage, but none of them are that far away."
Mayo has one visit remaining. He travels to Virginia Tech on Jan. 23. He plans on having a press conference at his school on Feb. 2 to announce his decision.
