5-star wide receiver Vidal Hazelton still has not taken an official visit. The 6-3, 200-pound star was scheduled to go for an official visit to Florida State the first weekend in September, but couldn’t make it. He has since scheduled three other official visits, all of which are scheduled for November.

“I have a visit set to Southern Cal on November 18th, one to Florida on November 25th and one to Tennessee on November 11th,” Hazelton said. “I’m definitely going to take one to Miami. Virginia Tech and Florida State are fighting it out for the other one.”

The schools mentioned above make up Vidal’s current top six.

“I have a top six right now,” Hazelton said. “There is Miami, Florida State, Florida, Virginia Tech, Tennessee and Southern Cal. It’s mainly between those six. I don’t have a favorite right now.”

One school missing from the list is the University of Virginia, which was one of the leading contenders in the early going. Where are the Cavs now?

“I still like them, but the quarterback situation isn’t real solid after this year,” Hazelton said. “They still keep in touch with me and I didn’t cut them or anything, but the quarterback situation doesn’t look great right now. If [Marques] Hagans was a sophomore, then they’d definitely be up there.”

Regarding Virginia Tech, Hazelton, who will play in Blacksburg against the Virginia Tech JV squad in late October, discussed what he likes about the Hokies.

“I don’t really know what it is about them,” Hazelton said of Virginia Tech. “I guess it was because I grew up watching them. I watched Mike Vick, Kevin Jones…all of them. I just like them.”

Hazelton is having success at Hargrave. As a starting receiver, he has 19 catches for 421 yards and seven touchdowns in four games.

“It ain’t that bad,” Hazelton said of Hargrave. “It’s a good place to focus on my academics. I play against better competition, so in my first year in college I think I’ll be ready to contribute more. The weightlifting situation is much better here. We lift everyday – it’s part of our routine.”
