St. Peter’s Prep (NJ) star athlete Leo Ferrine has set up his final three official visits. During the month of January, Ferrine heads to Penn State on the 16th, Notre Dame on the 23rd, and Virginia on the 30th.

His first official visit, which was taken on the weekend of December 5th-7th, was to Rutgers and it appears to have gone well.

“The Rutgers trip was pretty good,” Ferrine said. “I was impressed with what they showed me in terms of where the program is going. They have gotten some good commitments from the state of New Jersey. Education wise, Rutgers is excellent. Football-wise, they are trying to make a move.”

Ferrine is being recruited as a cornerback by all four programs, with wide receiver being a possibility as well. He has been offered by all except for Notre Dame.

“This is basically my final four,” Ferrine said. “It was tough, but I really feel I made a good decision with the schools I chose. I’ve been to all of these schools a lot except for Notre Dame, which I’ve only been to once. They all offer great education and football wise, they are good fits.

“I don’t have any favorite school right now. When I decide, it’ll probably just be a gut feeling I think. My parents will help me out as well.”

Ferrine has visited UVA on many different occasions, with the most recent being an unofficial visit for the Virginia Tech game (he visited UVA as a sophomore, then as a junior with current UVA freshman Marvin Richardson, and has been there several times in 2003).

He caught yesterday’s Continental Tire Bowl contest on television, and was impressed with the Virginia squad.

“I did get a chance to see them on TV,” Ferrine said of UVA. “They impressed me. The school spirit they showed was impressive, and they are showing they have the ability to win. They impressed me during the Virginia Tech game also. They’ve been impressing me for a while.”

The 6-2, 185 pound speedster is being recruited by Defensive Coordinator Al Golden, who most recently visited St. Peter’s on December 19th (according to Ferrine). Ferrine’s relationship with the Virginia coaches is one positive for the Cavaliers.

“For Virginia, the relationship with the coaching staff is good,” Ferrine said. “And talent-wise, they have a
