Mammoth OL/DL Bobby Massie , a 6-7, 330-pound prospect out of Liberty Christian Academy (Lynchburg, VA), continues to stick with his plan to make official visits before making verbal commitment. Virginia Tech will receive one of Massie’s five official visits, and he does plan to take all five.
“I’ll make a decision after officials,” said Massie, who has not set any official visit dates yet, but is eyeing the weekend of September 1st for a possible official to the University of Georgia.
In addition to Georgia and Virginia Tech, Massie plans to make official visits to Clemson, Maryland and North Carolina, respectively. His most recent scholarship offer is from UNC. It came last month, when he attended summer camp in Chapel Hill.
“It was nice down there,” Massie said of UNC. “It was nice working with coach Pittman and coach Blake. They liked my athletic ability on the line and my potential to play early.”
Massie’s trip to UNC came a week after camping at Virginia Tech on July 14th. He reflected on what stood out about his experience in Blacksburg.
“I just liked the coaching staff and how they treat everybody like one of the boys, one of their friends,” Massie said of his Virginia Tech experience. “I talked to a couple of players and it was good to see how cool they were. I just felt comfortable.”
When was the last time he has been in contact with the Tech coaches?
“I talked to coach Stinespring [yesterday], actually,” Massie said. “He was on his way to a meeting with the players, so we only talked for about five minutes. He said he hadn’t heard from me in a while. I just talked to him to see how things were.”
A major positive for Virginia Tech is that Massie continues to say that “location will be a factor” when he makes his college decision. Right now, though, the state of Virginia star does not name a clear favorite and is more focused on the beginning of his senior season.
In the classroom, Massie admits he was “hoping to do a little better” with his summer school classes but remains confident that he can qualify with a good senior year.
