Gonzaga (DC) wide receiver Doug Dutch will decide where he will take his fifth and final official visit by the end of this week. Four visits have already been set, so there is just one left to go.
“I’ll have my decision for the fifth visit by the end of this week,” said Dutch, who is 6-1, 185 pounds and runs a 4.3 40. “It’s between Tennessee, NC State, and Pittsburgh. I’m going to take all five official visits, plus I’m going to take an unofficial visit to Maryland after the season is over.”
Virginia (11/29/03), Miami (12/05/03), Michigan (12/12/03), and Florida (01/09/04) make up the other four visits. Dutch went into detail telling what he likes about each of these four schools.

Dutch will make all five official visits and the one unofficial visit before deciding. The final deciding factor will be “where I feel most comfortable.”
Ready for the Big Time
After watching as much college football (favorite sport) as he can, Dutch is more ready than ever to leave high school and star on the next level.
“I’m anxious to get to college,” said Dutch. “I watch a lot of college...
