Clover Hill (Midlothian, VA) offensive lineman Blake DeChristopher made an unofficial visit to the University of Virginia last weekend. The 6-5, 295-pound standout took the time last night to discuss the trip, a possible timetable for making a college decision and his most recent scholarship offer.
Of last Saturday’s unofficial visit to Virginia, DeChristopher said “I enjoyed it a lot. I thought it was really nice up there. It was really good to meet coaches and I enjoyed talking to Al Groh and Mike Groh. They just treated me good and said they really liked me.”
The visit was for UVa’s Blue Chip day. He made the trip with his parents who, he says, “liked it. They like what UVa has to offer academically.”
This summer, DeChristopher also wants to take unofficial visits to Maryland and Virginia Tech. He has not decided if he will make a trip to Ohio State, which is the most recent program to extend a scholarship offer. Maryland, Ohio State, Virginia and Virginia Tech are the four schools to officially offer at this point.
“It’s a big school. It’s a good school and it was kind of surprising to see them offer,” DeChristopher said of the Ohio State offer. “It’s cool to see big schools like that be interested in me.”
Asked if Ohio State was a serious contender now, DeChristopher said “I’d have to say I’m not really sure. I’m just kind of taking everything in. I’m not really sure what I want to do right now.”
DeChristopher has not decided if he will make a decision before his senior season or if he will wait and take some official visits first.
“As of now, I’m probably just going to go on some unofficial visits I guess,” DeChristopher said. “That’s what I’m thinking. It’s a lot harder now, though. I don’t know for sure what I’m doing.”
There were rumors last week that DeChristopher was leaning towards Virginia Tech, but as of now he is not naming a favorite until he has a chance to visit all of the schools he wants to visit first.
“At this point, I’m even with everyone,” DeChristopher said. “I want to give each school a chance. I’m not going to say anything until I go to each school and check it out for myself.”
