The University of Tennessee was the second school to have a crack at impressing Phoebus LB Xavier Adibi on an official visit.
Following the visit, Adibi was impressed with the Volunteer program.
“The trip went fine,” said Adibi, who was hosted by Tidewater native CJ Fayton. “I got to see the new center where only athletes can go to do homework and things. I got to meet and talk to the coaches and players. I saw the stadium, and that was amazing.”
The Tennessee experience was good, but not good enough for Adibi to come out and name the Volunteers as his leader.
“I’m still waiting, taking my time” said Adibi. “I don’t have a leader. My first two visits were both really good experiences.”
In the end, Adibi knows what factors will make the difference in choosing his collegiate destination.
“I’m looking for good chemistry with the coaches,” said Adibi. “I also want to feel good with my the defensive scheme. But basically, I just want to go to a place that feels like home.”
Virginia Tech is next up for the talented Phoebus linebacker with a visit scheduled for this weekend, and the Hokies have an in-home this week as well. Adibi said he “most likely” will take his visit to NC State and then make a decision.
Adibi is being very patient in his recruiting process. He seemed a little more excited about his Tennessee visit than he did his Maryland trip. I do not expect he will name a leader until he announces his decision.
