Varina (VA) running back Brandon Minor , rated a 4-star prospect and one of the top running backs in the country, has one official visit remaining on his schedule before he will announce his college decision. Miami, Michigan, Tennessee and Virginia Tech make up the final four for the 6-0, 220-pound standout.
Minor made an official visit to Tennessee in October and went to Michigan and Miami, respectively, earlier this month.
“He told me he had a really good time at both places,” Varina assistant coach Blanda Wolfe said. “He said Miami was a little more open and he didn’t sleep as much there, but he enjoyed both places. He still has the Virginia Tech visit remaining.”
