Richmond (Va.) Hermitage wide receiver Fontel Mines took an official visit to Virginia this weekend. Are the Cavs his leader?
"It's about the same which means that I like UVA a little better right now," said the 6-foot-5, 210-pounder who is also considering Virginia Tech. "The visit went really well. I had a great time."
Mines got to know a lot of the players and coaches a bit better.
"Well, my hosts were Lance Evans and Anthony Martinez and they showed us around. I went on the visit with my teammate, Duane (Brown) so they hosted both of us," he said. "We spent a lot of time in the dorms and getting to know the players and the college feeling. I also got to know the coaches a bit better.
"We also had some late nights and had to get up early which is also what I imagine will happen in college."
Despite the excellent visit and a big Virginia win over NC State, Mines didn't think about committing.
"I didn't want to get caught up in all the hype," he said. "I will see if I feel the same way towards the end of the week, so no, I didnt think about committing."
Mines takes his next official visit on Nov. 29 to Virginia Tech.
"After that one I'll decide," he said. "It's really still up in the air."
