Eastern Regional (Voorhees, NJ) offensive lineman Phi Trautwein made an official visit to Boston College this past weekend. It was his second official visit, as he toured Michigan State on the weekend of September 27th.

“It went good,” said Trautwein of his visit to BC. “I liked it. I’d never been before, so I learned a lot about the school. Boston is a wonderful place. There are so many students in the city because you have so many colleges in the area. I had a chance to meet the offensive line coach Don Horton and [Head] Coach [Tom] O’Brien and the players. Everything went great.”

Trautwein has Michigan State and Boston College at the top of his list, followed by Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Rutgers.

“Both of my visits were about the same,” said Trautwein of his MSU and BC visits. “At MSU, I had been there before for camp. So when I went there, I was comfortable because I knew the players and the coaches. Plus I have a great relationship with Coach [Jeff] Stoutland, Michigan State’s offensive line coach. That’s the one thing Michigan State had over Boston College. Michigan State might have a slight edge right now, but actually I would just say they are both equal right now.”

Next up for Trautwein is an official visit to Tennessee on the weekend of November 22nd. He may not be able to make this visit, if his team is able to win their first round playoff game.

“I would actually rather not go to the visit, because I want to win the state championship,” said Trautwein. “If we beat Mainland in the first round, we would play on the weekend of the 22nd. If not, I will go to Tennessee. If we win and I can’t go, I don’t have anything else set up.”

Schools vying for the final two visit spots are Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Rutgers. Trautwein will make an unofficial visit to Rutgers this weekend and hopes to go to Virginia on November 29th for the Virginia Tech game.

He will decide on his final two visits after the UVA/VT game.

“Most likely I’m going to make all five visits,” said Trautwein. “I’m considering Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Rutgers for those two. I don’t know if there are any that stand out…I’ll figure that out after I make some unofficial visits. I’m going to Rutgers this weekend. They seem to getting better and may be an uprising program. I’m probably going to the Virginia game versus
