Chris Gorham , a speedy cornerback prospect from Pottstown High School in Pottstown, PA, knows of three schools he would like to officially visit. He hopes to take his visits during the football season.
“I want to go to Virginia, Notre Dame, and Georgia Tech,” said Gorham. “I definitely want to see those three schools. The other slots are open and I’m not sure if I’ll use those. I may only take one visit, and if I feel comfortable with the school that might be it.
“I’ll take my visits during the season. I want to visit each school during a football game to get a feel for the atmosphere. I have to check the school schedule to make sure I’m not missing anything big. After I check that, I’ll set up my visits.”

Virginia, Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt, Duke, Kent State, and Toledo have offered Gorham a scholarship. He begins practice for his school today, and hopes to practice some new techniques on the opposition this season.
He is not telling what he has in store for opposing offenses.
“I’ll keep my new stuff to myself,” laughed Gorham. “The camps I attended taught me secrets and tips on how to play the cornerback...
