Gar-Field (Woodbridge, VA) defensive end/outside linebacker prospect Clint Sintim seems to be down to three schools…Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Maryland. He has made an official visit to UVA and has scheduled visits to Maryland and Virginia Tech.
Originally, he planned on making trips to Tennessee and Ohio State as well, however those schools appear to be focusing their efforts elsewhere.
“I have scheduled a visit to Maryland for January 9th and Virginia Tech for January 24th,” Sintim said. “I wanted to take all five visits, but nobody else is really calling right now. These might be my only ones.”
Sintim went to Charlottesville on December 13th, and came away impressed. He now lists UVA as the favorite over Tech and Maryland, however he wants to make the other two visits before making a final decision.

Sintim discussed what he likes about each of the three schools, with relationship with the coaches being the primary positive for UVA and Virginia Tech.
“For Virginia, I really like the coaches,” Sintim said. “They really put a personal emphasis on getting to know me and my family. They’ve been recruiting me the longest and the hardest, and it seems like they really need me which feels good.
“I really like the coaches for Virginia Tech as well. They know me and my family on a personal level as well, but maybe not as close as UVA. They’ve both been to my house and I really like them both.
“For Maryland, they are not really far from home at all. They have an up-and-coming program as well.”
Virginia is recruiting Sintim as an outside linebacker while Virginia Tech and Maryland like him as a defensive end. Sintim has looked at each position carefully, and appears to feel comfortable with both.
“I’m pretty comfortable with either position,” Sintim said. “I’ve been checking out the defenses during the bowls, just seeing how I look at each. I really think I would be comfortable playing both of them. I just want a chance to play.”
