Gar-Field High School (Woodbridge, VA) star prospect Clint Sintim is down to two schools – Virginia and Virginia Tech. The 6-3, 240 pound defensive end/outside linebacker prospect hopes to decide between the two in-state programs following his official visit to Virginia Tech on the weekend of January 24th.

Sintim has already made an official visit to Virginia.

“I’m going to take my visit to Virginia Tech and probably decide soon after,” Sintim said. “I think it’s definitely going to be a tough decision. I’m really going to take my official visit to Virginia Tech seriously so I can really compare both schools.”

Sintim was originally scheduled to visit the University of Maryland this past weekend, however the Terrapins cancelled the visit. Both Virginia and Virginia Tech remain extremely active in their recruitment, as Tech Defensive Coordinator Bud Foster paid a visit to Gar-Field High School Monday. On Sunday, Sintim made an unofficial visit to Charlottesville to catch the Duke at Virginia men’s basketball game.

Neither school has scheduled an in-home visit at this point.

“Coach Foster came by my school, and just talked about how much they want me and where I would fit into their defense,” Sintim said. “Sunday night, I went to UVA for a basketball game. I just wanted a chance to get out with my friends and watch the game. The coaches were there, and they were asking me how I was doing and what was going on. We didn’t talk about anything serious though.”

Sintim acknowledged that UVA maintains a slight lead at this point, however he is looking forward to the Virginia Tech visit to be able to compare the two programs.

“UVA is probably my leader by a little,” Sintim said. “They are my only visit right now though. I’m going to be able to really compare both schools after my official visit to Virginia Tech.”

In terms of position, Virginia still likes Sintim as an outside linebacker while Virginia Tech is recruiting him to play defensive end. Sintim believes he can play both positions, and says “I don’t care where I play in college. I just want an opportunity to play somewhere on defense.”

Of his final two schools, Sintim listed some positives about each.

“For Virginia, it’s definitely the coaches,” Sintim said. “They are just really nice.
