In late November, Coconut Creek (Fla.) North Broward defensive end Tevin Westbrook took his first official visit when he traveled to Purdue. Now, he knows of two other likely visit destinations.
"I am probably going to UConn next weekend and UNC sometime in January," Westbrook said. "I plan to take all five of my official visits."
Before he makes his way to Connecticut or North Carolina, Westbrook reflected on his trip to Purdue once again.

"It was a good trip," Westbrook said. "I saw the campus and just got to experience my first visit. I got to see a game. I met with the coaches. I saw the West Lafayette atmosphere."
As for the highlight of the trip, Westbrook mentioned that a couple things really stood out.
"It was just the relationship I had with the coaches and the school's atmosphere," Westbrook said.
The 6-foot-6, 265-pound defensive lineman talked about his conversations with the coaching staff at Purdue.
"I spoke with Coach (Danny) Hope and Coach (Gary) Emanuel the most," Westbrook said. "They basically spoke about them wanting me in their program and how they were glad I came up. They talked about how interested they are in me."
Westbrook was hosted on his official visit by defensive tackle Kevin Pamphile. The redshirt freshman gave him a player's perspective on what it is like to be a Boilermaker.
"He was telling me that it is a good atmosphere up there and that the school is good," Westbrook said. "He said that overall there is a family connection between the players on the team."
At this point in his recruitment, the three-star defensive end is remaining wide open.
"I don't want to name a leader right now," Westbrook said. "I want to take my visits, see them all, and then go from there. That should help me know which one is the best for me out of my top five."
Coaches from South Carolina, LSU, Michigan State, South Florida, and Central Florida have all recently made their way down to North Broward according to Westbrook.
