Kecougtan linebacker Jerod Mayo is using his summer time off to the fullest, taking visits to prospective colleges. He has been to the University of Virginia, where he took in one day of the camp but did not participate.
He visited Virginia Tech earlier this week for a one-day trip. He returned impressed and slightly surprised by what he saw.
“It actually was better than what I expected,” said Mayo of his first ever trip to Virginia Tech. “I wasn’t expecting the facilities to be so nice. They were really sophisticated and I really liked it.
“I was mostly impressed by the way the coaches treat you. My recruiting coach, Coach Cavanaugh, treated my family very well.”
While he has enjoyed both of his in-state visits (to Virginia earlier this year for the spring game and Virginia Tech recently), Mayo still has no favorites. UVA and Virginia Tech are the only schools to officially offer, while Purdue has verbally offered the Kecoughtan star.
He plans on taking a visit to NC State, and hopes to have an offer from the Pack soon.
“I am still wide open,” said Mayo. “I am supposed to speak with the NC State linebackers coach and visit there maybe next week.”
North Carolina, Tennessee, and Maryland are the other programs seriously recruiting Mayo. He will likely decide some time after his football season is over, and may even wait until signing day.
