Four schools appear to be the finalists for West Charlotte (NC) cornerback Rod Council . Council, who has taken official visits to Notre Dame, Virginia, and Michigan, will make an official visit to Virginia Tech on November 22nd.
He is hoping to make a decision following his visit to Virginia Tech.
“This is pretty much it – it’s probably between those four,” said Council. “I probably won’t take anymore visits after my Virginia Tech visit. I haven’t really eliminated anybody, so I’ll choose between those four.”
Council made an unofficial visit this past weekend to Virginia Tech, where he saw the Hokies defeat the Miami Hurricanes 31-7.
“It was nice,” said Council of the visit. “We got up there around five o’clock or so, met with the coaches, watched the players walk, and went to the game. The game had a good atmosphere. The fans are really into their team at Virginia Tech.”
No team has the edge right now for Council, however he did mention which official visits have been his favorite thus far.
“Notre Dame was probably my favorite visit so far, but I liked my Virginia visit too,” said Council. “I think I’ll still have a very good time at Virginia Tech as well.”
Council says comfort level with the coaching staff will be his highest priority in making his final decision.
“The biggest factor will probably be my relationship with the coaches and the overall school atmosphere,” said Council. “I will base it on the people I’ve met so far, and how I feel around them. You can’t go somewhere where you aren’t comfortable.”
This feels like a three-team competition right now between Notre Dame, Virginia, and Virginia Tech, with Michigan on the outside looking in. Look for Rod to make his decision in December.
On the Gridiron
Council showed last Friday why he earned a spot on the Carolina Shrine Bowl roster. He picked off three passes, returning one 20 yards for a touchdown, in a 38-0 West Charlotte route of West Mecklenburg.
West Charlotte will face Hoke County High School this weekend in the opening round of the playoffs.
