Dudley (Greensboro, NC) defensive tackle DeMario Pressley has set two of his five official visits. UNC and NC State are scheduled to receive officials from one of the nation’s top defensive tackle prospects.
He visits NC State for the weekend of December 6th and UNC for the weekend of January 9th.
“I am excited to set some visits,” Pressley said. “I really like the coaches and the overall tradition of both schools [I have set visits for].”
Pressley will likely make all five official visits before making a decision.
“I think I’ll take all five [official visits],” Pressley said. “I don’t think I’ll decide the other three soon. Probably sometime in December. I’m thinking about Florida State, Miami (FL), Oklahoma, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech…a lot of schools.”
Both the Cavaliers and the Hokies remain in the running for Pressley, who plans on making an unofficial visit to Virginia this weekend for the Virginia Tech game.
“Virginia and Virginia Tech are in the mix with the other colleges,” Pressley said. “I’m trying to go to the [Virginia Tech at Virginia] game this weekend. It would be an unofficial visit. I’m not saying definitely because I’m not totally sure, but I’m planning on it.”
Pressley, a 6-4, 290 pound defensive tackle, helped Dudley to an 8-5 record this season. Dudley lost in the second round of the Class 3 AA playoffs to Southern Durham by a score of 5-0. DeMario commented the game was all about “defense, defense, defense. That’s it. We just came up short.”
As a junior, he tallied 97 tackles with 17 tackles-for-loss and 14 sacks. He feels he followed up his junior year with another solid season.
“I think I continued what I did last year,” Pressley said. “This year though, there were games where the other team never ran at me the whole game. There were games where I faced double and triple teams, so that was tougher. I think I continued to play well this year though.”
With football season completed, Pressley says he is now “in training.” He will hit the weight room and hopes to participate in track as well.
