Raymond Wingo isn't tipping his hand. This is probably by design. Coming off an official visit to Missouri, the three-star cornerback is keeping calm. He doesn't name the hometown school as his leader or spend a chunk of time raving about his trip.
Instead, his emotion stays muffled. This is a workmanlike approach.
"It was fun," Wingo said of his weekend trip. "I had a lot of fun. You would think I have been there a lot, but this was only the fourth time. Everything is still pretty close with all the schools I'm looking at. I'm just taking it slow right now."
The teams left standing in his recruitment are Missouri, Michigan State, Auburn and Arkansas. Wingo doesn't differentiate between the four as of yet. It's all part of the process of guarding whatever favorite he may have. And that very well could be because his mind is subject to change.
With just one official in the books, Wingo will now the check out his remaining finalists. An Auburn visit is scheduled for Jan. 17, he'll bet at Arkansas on Jan. 24 and tour Michigan State on Jan. 31.
His travel plans take him dangerously close to signing day. Originally, the plan was to announce then. Now the St. Louis-based cornerback says he's not so sure about that. Signing day is a possibility, but it's not exactly circled on his calendar in pen.
"It's still probably signing day," Wingo said. "But you never know. You never really know."
Signing day or not, the decision will carry some semblance of drama. Even when asked about his favorite part of his first official visit, Wingo makes sure not to say anything over the top.
"The family atmosphere," Wingo said. "It was nice that I got to room with a player from my hometown. He was able to show me a lot of cool things there."
Wingo is the No. 30-ranked cornerback in the class of 2014. He claims a total of 15 scholarship offers.
