Chantilly (Va.) Westfield wide receiver Eddie Royal is nearing his deicison. Royal has one visit left and a solid top three schools. Which school will the talented four-star prospect?
"It is down to three schools. Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Marshall are my final three. I have visited Virginia and Virginia Tech. I visit Marshall this weekend. I met with Coach Groh and Coach Golden from Virginia last night and I was very impressed and so was my mom," said the 5-foot-11, 175 pound, wide out who runs the 40 yard-dash in 4.4 seconds.
What does Royal like about each school?
"Marshall is where my brother goes to school. I like the offense there and I think I could play early. Virginia Tech is where my sister goes. I like the coaching staff and the opportunity that I would have if I went there. I like their quarterback situation and I had a good visit there. I like Virginia because of the academic opportunities and the coaching staff. They are definitely a team on the rise and they have shown the willingness to play young players. They have laid out the most detailed gameplan for where I would fit and they are only an hour and fifteen minutes away from my house. I definitely have a lot to think about."
When will Royal be ready to decide?
"I will come home from Marshall on Sunday and discuss it with my mom. It will just come down to a gut feeling. I will make my decision Sunday night and I will announce at school on Monday. I want to do it there and let my peers and teachers know first because they have been so supportive of me."
