Crete-Monee (Ill.) cornerback Anthony Standifer took his second official visit of the process this weekend to Boise State. The three-star prospect has one more school he wants to visit, which means he will not be signing his letter of intent this Wednesday.
"I'm going to Pitt on the 10th [of February]," Standifer said. "There are other schools that have been calling, but I am going to stick with those three."
The three under consideration for Standifer are Boise State, Pitt and Notre Dame. Standifer took an official visit to Notre Dame last week, and expressed interest in signing with the Irish, but is short of meeting their academic requirements.
"The Spanish [class] didn't work out, so I don't think it is an option anymore," Standifer said. "I am still going to try to talk to Coach [Chuck] Martin and see if there is anything I can do."
With the Notre Dame option close to being off the table, Standifer embarked on his official visit to Boise State this weekend not knowing what to expect from the Broncos, but was pleasantly surprised with his experience.
"The trip was actually real good," Standifer said. "I was just gathering a lot of information I didn't know. It wasn't what I expected it to be. It is actually a great town and the coaching staff is tremendous. Boise State has a winning tradition and they have been to two Fiesta Bowls.
"The players on the team were real cool and I had fun just getting to know all of them. They are from all over and that really surprised me. Boise is so far from everybody's home, so if I decide to go there, I know those kids are far from home too."
Standifer now heads into his official visit with Pittsburgh two weekends from now ready to compare that experience to the one he just completed at Boise State.
"I am real excited about Pitt," Standifer said. "What interests me about them is I don't think they get as much attention as they should. Darrell Revis is my favorite corner and he went there. I think it is a great school and their complex is right next to the Pittsburgh Steelers, so being next to an NFL environment, it helps you with your goals."
Standifer also noted that he has family in the Pittsburgh area. A final decision from the 6-1, 178-pound prospect is expected after he makes the trip to Pittsburgh.
