In the previous update, Northern Durham’s (NC) outstanding linebacker Chase Bullock had listed Maryland, Virginia, and South Carolina as his top schools. Recently, Maryland has move ahead of the Cavaliers and Gamecocks for his services.
“Yeah, they are my leader,” Bullock said of Maryland. “I’ve started liking their program more and more. They have a really good program. They are winning…though that does not make much of a difference, because I know a program like Virginia will be all right in the long run because of the recruits they are bringing in. At Maryland, I think I could play early. They have two seniors who play the SAM, or the strong-side linebacker position, which is where they want me to play.”
Bullock admits there is a chance he commits to the Terrapins on his scheduled December 6th official visit (the visit may be rescheduled if No. Durham makes the state championship game, which would be played on December 6th).
“If I go there and I like everything I see, I probably would commit then,” Bullock said. “But I’m not positive, because I have to take my visit and see if everything feels right on my visit. I’ve been to Maryland for the UNC game earlier this year, but I only had a chance to see the game, talk to the coaches, and tour the facilities. It was cool. I want to see everything else.”
Virginia is still actively recruiting Bullock. The Cavaliers and Terrapins were two of the first schools to offer him, and both are recruiting him very hard.
“I actually talked to Coach Golden and Coach Prince two days ago,” Bullock said. “They told me they had read articles where Maryland was my leader. They were cool about it. They just told me to make sure I check everything out before I decide because you never know.”
The Cavaliers sent Bullock a letter from [current Dallas Cowboys Head Coach] Bill Parcells earlier this year, which is something he will never forget regardless of where he signs.
“Somehow, Coach Groh sent me this letter from Bill Parcells,” Bullock said. “He wrote what type of linebacker it takes to make it to the next level. It was exciting, and I put it up in my locker. That’s something you keep for a long time.”
Maryland looks like a strong favorite at this point, however UVA remains active in recruiting Bullock. A lot will depend on what happens on the December 6th official visit to Maryland, which looks to be a make or break...
