Burke (Va.) Robinson running back Lucas Caparelli took his first official visit a week and a half ago to Virginia Tech on December 9th. The 5-foot-11, 190-pounder with 4.4-second speed has scheduled three other officials in January. What did Caparelli think of Tech and who else will he be heading to?
"The Virginia Tech visit went really well," he said. "I've seen everything before and it was nice again. I just went through the facilities, met the players and coaches. My host was Sean Glennon and he was good, but I already knew they had a good university and program.
"On Sunday before I left I met with coach Beamer. That was really good, but he didn't really tell me anything I haven't heard before. He mostly talked to me about how Virginia Tech is a good place and he'd like me to come down there."
The Hokies are looking at Caparelli as an athlete to play either running back or defensive back.
"Either position is fine for me. I just want to be able to play."
Asked to rate his official visit to Blacksburg, the three-star prospect replied, "I can't give it an exact rating, but I had a good time and I'd say they are right up there with the other schools I plan to take official visits to."
Caparelli has scheduled officials to Wake Forest on January 6th, Virginia on January 20th and Central Michigan on January 27th.
"I've gotten a good feeling from both Wake Forest and Virginia. Both of those schools have shown a lot of interest in me and I like my recruiter, coach Sherman from Wake and coach Poindexter from UVA," he said. "Coach Hughes from Central Michigan came down to my school and I like what he was saying. I got a good feeling from him too."
The No. 50 running back in the country isn't if he'll take a fifth official visit. Right now, Caparelli plans to decide close to Signing Day.
In the last couple weeks, the No. 20 player in Virginia received in-home visits from Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.
