Varina (VA) standouts Bud Tribbey were in Blacksburg this past weekend on official visits to Virginia Tech. Tech already has a commitment from four-star defensive back Davon Morgan and the Hokies seem the have impressed Morgan’s teammates as well.

“Both of them told me they had a good time and everything,” Varina Offensive Coordinator Blanda Wolfe said. “They both told me they really liked the coaches and got to know more about the school. They enjoyed the game even though Virginia Tech didn’t come out on top. Jamar made comment that the stadium was the loudest one he’s ever been in. So I think they had a good time. I don’t think they are close a decision yet, but I think they had a good time.”

Jackson was hosted by Noland Burchette. Both Jackson and Tribbey spent a lot of time with Victor “Macho” Harris. Davon Morgan was in town on an unofficial visit as well.


In a previous interview, Jackson, who has taken official visits to Boston College, Louisville and N.C. State, respectively, had stated that he would visit Clemson after going to Virginia Tech. Is this still the case or could Jamar make a decision without making a fifth official visit?

“I’ve heard both ways, but I’m not totally sure,” Wolfe said.

No team seems to have jumped ahead as the clear favorite.

“It seems like he likes them all,” Wolfe said. “All of them are pretty even I think. Sometimes he has said more good things about Louisville than anybody, but he hasn’t really come out and said he likes Louisville better. Then again, the next day he will talk about Virginia Tech and then the next day he will talk about Boston College. It kind of depends on the day. I think it’s going to be a really tough decision for him. He just needs to find the best fit for him.”

Not making the decision any easier is the fact that more schools are starting to show interest.

“Tennessee and Michigan and even Florida State have got in on him,” Wolfe said. “He’s getting so much thrown his way that I think it’s a lot to handle. Both Tennessee and Michigan are trying to get him to come on an official visit. Basically, they said if he’s interested then they are interested. Florida State is trying to get him to use his last visit on them.”
