South View (Hope Mills, NC) tight end Jonathan Hannah knows which 5 schools he will officially visit, and he has set up dates for three of those trips.
“My first official visit will be this weekend at Clemson,” Hannah said. “My other 4 visits are to Penn State, Oklahoma, Virginia Tech and Georgia. I’ve been to the in-state schools (referring to N.C. State and UNC) so much that I felt I didn’t have to see them. I haven’t spent as much time at these other places.
“I don’t know the exact dates for the rest of the visits. I only know games. I’m going to the Nebraska/Oklahoma game and the LSU/Georgia game. I’m not sure when I’ll visit Tech and Penn State. I do want to visit them for games to see the atmospheres. I thought I was going to Virginia Tech for the N.C. State game, but I think that conflicts with a SAT date or something.”
Following a visit to Blacksburg for Virginia Tech’s summer camp, Hannah stated that the Hokies were his slight leader. Tech remains very much in the mix, but does not have an edge at this time.
“It mellowed out a little bit, but that’s nothing for people to think about,” Hannah said of his interest in Tech. “I still really like Tech. Right now, I’m pretty even [among all of the schools].”
Hannah appears to have narrowed his list of schools to 8.
“I am pretty much down to those 7,” Hannah said, referring to the 5 schools he will officially visit as well as N.C. State and UNC. “I am still considering Florida State too.”
When asked how he chose the schools he wanted to officially visit, Hannah said “it was a general thing. Each school has something different, something that attracted me to them.”
For Virginia Tech, Hannah said “I like the coaching staff. I think I’d have a chance to play tight end or defensive end early. I didn’t see Blacksburg in more depth than I wanted to, but I’ll have the chance to do that on the next visit.”
The South View star hopes to make his decision following his 5 official visits. He does not have a timetable on when he will make a commitment.
Playing tight end and defensive end for South View, Hannah has helped his team to a 2-0 start to the 2004 season. In 2 games, he has 3 receptions for 55 yards on offense and 7 tackles, 1 1/2 sacks and 1 fumble recovery on defense.
