Jerod Mayo will make an official visit NC State the weekend of December 5th, Virginia the weekend of December 12th, Purdue the weekend of December 19th, and Virginia Tech the weekend of January 29th.
While those four dates are set, he has not decided on his fifth and final destination.
“I will be taking all five of my official visits,” said Mayo. “But I haven’t decided on my last one. Tennessee gave me a date to think about, but I’m not sure I want to go there. I’m thinking about UNC and possibly Clemson as well. UNC has offered while Clemson said they will show more interest in me when I show more interest in them.”
Mayo, a 6-2, 210 pound linebacker for Kecougtan High School in Hampton, Virginia, is considered one of the top prospects in the state. He has received scholarship offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Purdue, North Carolina, and NC State.
Virginia, Virginia Tech, NC State, Tennessee, and Purdue are his current top five. Virginia appears to have a slight lead on the rest.
“My top five is still the same – Virginia, Virginia Tech, NC State, Purdue, and Tennessee,” said Mayo. “If I had to decide today though, it would be Virginia. There’s just something about them. I like the 3-4 defense and their new weight room coach, Evan Marcus. Overall they have very good facilities.”
Mayo went into further detail about his other four favorites.
“Virginia Tech has a good weight lifting coach as well in Coach Gentry,” said Mayo. “They have good fans, and I have a lot of friends that go there. I grew up watching Tennessee and they have 100,000 people watching every game. NC State has the best looking facilities I’ve seen so far. Purdue has a solid team. I’ve become good friends with their recruiting coordinator. I liked what they had to say early about their program.”
Mayo is anxious to make all of his visits before deciding, so look for an announcement somewhere around Signing Day.
“Oh I’m sure I’ll make all of my visits,” said Mayo. “I won’t decide early.”
In five games this season, Mayo has averaged around ten tackles per game. He has five sacks and one interception. In the past two games, Mayo has seen action at the tailback position. He rushed for around 130 yards in last weekend’s victory.
