Lakeland (Fla.) Victory Christian Academy athlete Demeitre Brim has been committed to Virginia since April, but that hasn't stopped him from attending games at Central Florida the past two weekends.
"They have been sending me letters, but I haven't been talking to them a lot," Brim said of the Knights. "I just decided I would go up there and watch a game and everything. I wanted to see the environment."
Brim said that the atmosphere surrounding the Boston College game was impressive.

"Everything was nice," Brim said. "The game was sold out, so the environment and everything was real good. It was a good game. UCF is really building their program. I didn't know they were that good."
The 6-foot-3, 215-pound athlete said he arrived to the game late, so he didn't get a chance to speak with the coaches as they were already with the team on the field. He did have a chance to catch up with the staff the previous week when he attended the Charleston Southern game and their message was simple.
"It was pretty much that I am still on their board and that they would love to see me on their defensive side of the ball at safety," Brim said. "They said that they are still open to me if I decide I ever want to decommit from Virginia. They just said they will be with me throughout the whole process."
Despite his back-to-back visits to Central Florida, and overtures from other programs, Brim said that he still considers himself a commitment to the Virginia Cavaliers.
"I feel like I am still firmly committed to Virginia," Brim said. "I do want to take all of my official visits and I know Virginia had a problem with that, but I think I deserve it for myself to go ahead and see some other places. I am still praying about all of the decisions that I make, but I feel I am still a firm commitment to Virginia."
At this time, Brim has yet to schedule any official visits. He said some possible destinations include Ole Miss and Virginia.
The three-star Sunshine State prospect has yet to play during his senior season after suffering a broken jaw. He is scheduled to be reviewed by his doctor on Thursday when he gets the bars removed. Brim is hoping to be cleared to play at least offense for this Friday's game, but he said he is not optimistic he will get the green light this week.
