6-2, 185-pound Ras-I Dowling , an athletic prospect who could play either defensive back or wide receiver on the next level, is considering offers from Virginia and Virginia Tech and recently set an official visit date with one of them. Which program will the Deep Creek (Chesapeake, VA) standout visit?
“I’ve set one for Virginia Tech on December 10th,” Dowling said. “I haven’t set one to Virginia, yet. I still plan on taking an official visit to Virginia.”
Dowling has attended a big game at each program, including the Miami/Virginia Tech and Virginia Tech/Virginia games last month. Did Virginia Tech’s win give the Hokies an advantage over the ‘Hoos?
“It didn’t hurt UVa,” Dowling said. “I went to the game when Virginia Tech lost to Miami. It’s not a big factor either way.”
Is there a favorite between the two schools?
“Not yet,” Dowling said. “I’ll have a decision after I go to both schools [on official visits].”
Dowling, who possesses close to a 40-inch vertical and posted a 4.4 40 time at Virginia Tech’s senior camp this summer, is one of the more athletic players in this year’s recruiting class. He plays basketball in addition to football.
