Coconut Creek (Fla.) North Broward defensive end Tevin Westbrook was supposed to begin his official visit schedule this past weekend with a trip to Texas A&M, but the 6-foot-6, 256-pound athlete failed to make it to College Station.
"I didn't make it this (past) weekend," Westbrook said. "I just had to reschedule. I am going to make it there sometime in November or December."
At this time, Rivals' No. 100 player in the state of Florida is taking a patient approach to his recruitment.
"I haven't scheduled any other officials yet," Westbrook said. "I am still trying to figure out who I am going to go visit. I think I know one or two of them. Texas A&M obviously and then probably a couple of local schools, like UCF and USF."
Those three schools are amongst the programs that are showing him the most attention at this time.
"I am hearing the most from UConn, Duke, UCF, Texas A&M, Wisconsin, and USF," Westbrook said. "They all basically call me once a week. I am hearing from all of them pretty regularly. I don't have a leader at this point."
The three-star defensive end said that his official visits will be pivotal to his final decision.
"I am just looking for a place where I go on a visit and the coaches are really good," Westbrook said. "It is going to come down to my relationship with them."
As for his final decision, that is likely not going to come until early in 2011.
"It is probably going to be some time around signing day," Westbrook said.
