New Brunswick, N.J. athlete Paul Vigo was scheduled to take an official visit to one of his offers this past weekend. The 6-foot-1, 172-pounder didn't make it to Colorado. What happened and does he plan to reschedule?
"I ended up not going," he said. "I have to schedule it for another time. A football scrimmage came up and I played against Hoboken. Marquise (Hamm) and I decided to take the weekend completely off.
"I haven't rescheduled the trip yet. We're going to see if it's possible to go up this weekend if we can. I don't even know if they play at home, but I've got to talk to one of the coaches there."
Currently the two-star prospect holds one other offer from Eastern Michigan. Plenty of other schools are talking to the Jersey prospect.
"Rutgers, Connecticut, Buffalo and Boston College have been in touch," he said. "They are all saying they want to see how I improve this season coming up. They seem like they are close to offering."
While Vigo didn't make it out West, he did take an unofficial to Rutgers.
"I went over there and met with the coaches, went on the field for pregame and spoke to Ray Rice," he said. "I got to sit in the front row at the 50-yard line. It was a good experience. It was fun watching Ray because after he scored the first time he said he's not done yet and ended up scoring two more. I got to see his competitive side.
"On the visit, I didn't really get to talk to the coaches. We left a bit early since they were winning by a lot. Overall though, it was a good experience and I always enjoy going over there. I'd say they are one school that sticks out. I like that they are close to home and a winning program."
As for football, Vigo opens the season next week on September 15th against Teaneck.
"We've got a bye the first week," he said. "We won the state championship last year and I think this team is pretty strong. I think we're faster and stronger upfront and the discipline is there.
"I've gotten faster of course too. I'm learning the game a lot more and just trying to work on finishing better."
