St. Petersburg (Fla.) Lakewood defensive end Julian Riley took his first official visit this past weekend and might need only three more before he decides.
"Florida is still my favorite, but I'm really feeling Purdue after my visit this weekend," said the 6-foot-4, 260-pound end. "Their program is really good, they have good academics and I liked the area. The players were all cool to me too. I'm not afraid to leave the state if it's the best fit."
That much is clear based on Riley's visit schedule. The talented pass rusher has a trip with Wisconsin this weekend (Dec. 13), Pitt on Jan. 10 and Boston College on Jan. 17.
"I'll see about a fifth if I need one," he said. "I need to talk to Florida. I'd like to just keep them an unofficial visit and maybe see Ohio State or Wake Forest. OSU just asked for some senior film and I think they'll offer after they get it."
So when will Riley decide?
"I think after the BC visit I'll be ready to decide," he said. "If I take a fifth visit it will probably be on Dec. 20 instead of late January. I don't want to wait until the very end to decide."
