Not long after verbally committing to the University of Kentucky, wide receiver Mario Urrutia began to listen to other schools. Did an official visit to Virginia change anything with regards to recruiting?
"I don't consider myself committed at all anymore," said the 6-foot-5, 195-pound receiver from Louisville (Ky.) Fern Creek. "I liked the visit to Virginia a lot. The campus was nice, the coaches were nice and the players were real cool to hang out with. It opened my eyes and made me realize that it's probably best not to commit until I've taken all my visits. I know I originally said Kentucky, but I think I moved to quickly."
So does that mean Virginia leads for Urrutia?
"No, not at all," he said. "I plan on taking all my visits and then making a decision. Until then, I'm keeping everything open. I've got visits coming up to Kentucky and Louisville, and I'm not sure where I'll take my other two officials. Maybe a place like Nebraska or West Virginia, but I'm not sure."
What will be the biggest factors in Urrutia's decision?
"Ultimately it's going to come down to how each team uses their wide receivers and how well most of the guys they have at that position develop over four years. Playing style will be a factor."
