Glenn High School (Kernersville, NC) offensive line prospect Chris DeGeare did make his scheduled official visit to Virginia Tech this past week. He commented on his first official visit experience.

“The trip was great,” DeGeare said. “I had fun. I was disappointed that they lost, but they played all right. Nick Marshman was my host for both days. He showed me around the campus and we went out both nights. It was nice.

“It was my first visit and I didn’t know what to expect, but I’d have to rate the overall experience a 9.”

DeGeare enjoyed his post-game experience on Saturday with Coach Rogers and Coach Pearman.

“On Saturday we went to Beamer’s after the game,” DeGeare said. “Coach Pearman and Coach Rogers were there. It was real good. The place was pretty nice. We were in the VIP room watching other games. The coaches were real laid back and nice.”

As for the game, DeGeare seemed to have enjoyed the atmosphere.

“I’d never seen so much orange in my life,” DeGeare said of the game atmosphere. “It may have been a little crazier than the Georgia game I went to. Everyone was loud.”

On Sunday, DeGeare met with Coach Beamer before leaving campus.

“I actually met Coach Beamer on Friday when we got there and I shook hands with him on Saturday before the game,” DeGeare said. “When I met with him, he said they needed offensive linemen and asked if I had a good time. He was nice.”

So did DeGeare feel comfortable on his visit?

“I think I fit in pretty good,” DeGeare said. “The coaches and players were nice when I talked to them. They seemed like pretty good people. I think it was a place I could see myself at.”

When asked if he had any favorites now, DeGeare said “not really. I’d say the schools recruiting me the hardest though out of my top 4 are Virginia Tech, South Carolina and Wake Forest.”

DeGeare will make an official visit to Wake Forest on October 23rd, South Carolina on October 30th and Tennessee on November 6th. He says those will be his only official visits, as they are likely his final 4 schools.
