Hampton (Va.) wide receiver Todd Nolen took an unofficial visit to Virginia yesterday. For Nolen, it was his first experience being at a college game.
"I loved it. Of course if you are going to see a team that you are listing, you want to see them win but it was still a great time. The crowd was really loud and it was great game to take in live," said the 6-foot-3, 185-pound receiver.
Heading into the visit to Virginia, Nolen had said that was a chance he could commit. Did he pull the trigger yesterday?
"No, but I am very close. Virginia is a great school and I know a lot of the guys on the team, but I am just not ready yet. I would say that Virginia is my leader though."
What other schools are in contention for the talented wide receiver?
"Virginia is obviously there. Other than Virginia I like Nebraska, North Carolina, and Virginia Tech."
Nolen has put in an amazing senior campaign. In his last seven games, Nolen has racked up 929 receiving yards and eight touchdowns for the undefeated Hampton Crabbers.
