Eastern (Voorhees, NJ) athlete Jahre Cheeseman returned last night from his first official visit, which was to Virginia Tech. Cheeseman took us through his 3-day experience.

“We got in at 5:30 [p.m.] on Friday,” Cheeseman said. “I met with my recruiting coach and my host for the night. I was hosted by George Bell on Friday night and Cory Holt on Saturday. I had fun on both nights.

“Before the game I ate breakfast and met with the team. Then I participated in the team walk with the fans there. We went into the tunnel and watched the pre-game. I was having a good time by then. I got a good impression from the fans. It was kind of overwhelming. They said it would be crazy, but I didn’t expect that. I was just laid back and took it all in.

“After the game I went back to the hotel to take a nap. Cory came and picked me up and we went out. I didn’t know how the players would be after the game, but everybody seemed all right. I felt comfortable hanging out with them.

“On Sunday I had breakfast and I met with the coaches. I met with Coach Beamer before we left. He talked about things going on at the school and what he’s expecting for the rest of the season. He hoped I had a good time.”

Jahre rated his first official visit on a scale of 1 to 10. Tech received high marks.

“It was my first visit, so I didn’t really know what to expect,” Cheeseman said. “Because of that I think I’ll go with an 8 or 9. I didn’t know what to expect, but I had fun.”

The 5-9, 180-pound speedster has 2 more official visits set and is in the process of setting another. He goes to Penn State on the weekend of December 4th and the University of Maryland on the weekend of December 11th. He should have a date set with Tennessee soon. Virginia is still under consideration for a visit, but Jahre has yet to speak with the Cavalier coaches this month.

“Right now I have to get a visit down with Tennessee,” Cheeseman said. “Depending on what’s going on with UVa, I may or may not set up a visit to Virginia.”

Heading into his Blacksburg visit, Cheeseman had named Tech and Penn State at the top of his list. Both schools are still high on his list, however he does not want to name any clear leaders.

“Everything’s pretty much still the same,” Cheeseman said. “I’m going to be patient and take all of my visits. I don’t really want to put anyone down or ahead
