Don Bosco Prep (NJ) wide receiver/defensive back Marquise Liverpool , fresh off of his team’s championship victory earlier this week, will make his first official visit this weekend. Liverpool will trip to the University of Virginia.

“I have an official visit with Virginia this weekend,” Liverpool said. “I’m leaving tomorrow. I’m excited. I’m just looking to have a good time and see what’s available down there.”

Liverpool indicated two other schools he will likely visit, however he was unsure of the dates. He claimed no favorites at this point.

“I’m not sure… I’ll probably visit Boston College and Rutgers,” Liverpool said. “I don’t have any specific favorites among my schools right now.”

Virginia and Boston College have been at or near the top of his list for quite some time, so do not be surprised if his decision comes down to these programs. Rutgers has a commitment from his teammate, quarterback Mike Teel, which is a positive for the Scarlet Knights, however I believe the other two schools may be in stronger position right now. Tennessee, Iowa, and Southern California are other schools in the mix.

In terms of when he plans on making a decision, Liverpool said “I don’t really know when I’ll decide. We’ll just have to see what happens.”

Al Golden is Virginia’s lead recruiter here, and the Cavaliers defensive coordinator was in-home recently with Liverpool and his family.

“Coach Golden just went over the academics and pretty much the whole program,” Liverpool said of the in-home visit. “It went well.”

Of the Cavaliers, Liverpool stated “I really like their coaching staff. They have a great school.” Virginia is recruiting him as an athlete that can play either wide receiver or cornerback.

Liverpool not only excels in football but in baseball as well. He is an outstanding baseball player who could be drafted in the next MLB Draft. He will likely play baseball on the collegiate level.
