Ian Cunningham recently narrowed his list down to three schools, with the lucky contenders being Nebraska, Georgia Tech, and Virginia. He visited Nebraska last weekend, and will take trips to Georgia Tech this weekend and Charlottesville on December 13.

Cunningham had the following thoughts on his three finalists.


“I had a really good visit. The strength and conditioning program in place is phenomenal. I’ve seen most of the Big 12, including Oklahoma and Texas A&M, and Nebraska’s is the best by far. Virginia doesn’t have a strength coach right now, but I’m sure Coach Groh will get a great strength coach as well, since he only goes for the best, but Nebraska’s is awesome.

“I really like the coaching staff a lot. I know their AD and a few coaches left, but the offensive coaches are still there, and I will play offense.”

Georgia Tech

“Well, I lived in Atlanta when I was younger. I have never actually been to the campus, only driven through and rode by it. I visit them this Friday, and I am really excited about it. [The visit] will give me an opportunity to see what’s changed with the program with Coach Gailey coming in. I can get to know some of the coaches better like I know some of the other coaches.

“Georgia Tech’s a team on the rise. I’ve never heard anything bad about Coach Gailey, and I could see myself playing there.”


“I have family in Virginia, and my dad is from Virginia. They run the type of offense that I play in high school. I feel comfortable with the coaching staff and some of the recruits that have come in. Jordy [Lipsey] and I are really close. The relationship that I’ve made with him is definitely the strongest that I’ve made with anybody throughout my visits.

“On the visit, I will get a chance to meet some of Virginia’s top recruits. Nathaniel Robinson is going to be there, and Kevin McCabe will be there also, and he’s already committed. I will be able to meet new guys and hang out with the players – see what they do and see if I am comfortable with them.”


Cunningham will take all three visits before making a decision. The three official visits will play a major
