September has been a busy month for 6-7, 330-pound senior Bobby Massie . Liberty Christian Academy’s (Lynchburg, VA) talented right tackle/nose guard has spoken with a handful of college coaches and has been able to set two official visits. He also has helped his team to a 2-0 start to the 2007 season.
“I have talked to coaches from Georgia, Clemson, Virginia Tech, UNC, Maryland, U-Conn and Tennessee,” Massie said. “That is really it. My coach has been telling me that other schools are interested, too. Notre Dame was at my game last week, but I’m not sure what is going on with them.”
Massie has scholarship offers from all of the schools that have been in phone contact except for Notre Dame. Two of those programs – Clemson and Georgia – have scheduled official visits with the talented big man. He will head to Clemson on the weekend of December 1st and Georgia the following weekend.
Massie, who will take each his official visits after his senior season is over, plans to take all five allotted trips.
“Virginia Tech will probably get one,” Massie said. “Tennessee will probably get one. I’m going to leave the last one open for now.”
Massie told TechSideline.com that he does not have any favorites right now. He did offer his impression of Virginia Tech, which has been in consistent contact this month.
“My impression of Virginia Tech is that they are a good team and a big powerhouse in the ACC,” said Massie, who mostly speaks with primary recruiter Bryan Stinespring. “They have a lot of good players from the state of Virginia. They have a good coaching staff. I watched the game last Saturday and one game doesn’t really tell you how a team is. They were playing the number two team in the country at their place. LSU is one of the loudest stadiums in the country. Tech’s defense didn’t hold up too well and neither did the offense, but I did like to see Tyrod Taylor in the game. I would like to block for a guy like that. He could be the next Vick.”
On the gridiron, Massie has performed well so far this season.
“I’ve been doing real good,” Massie said. “The past two games, I’ve had six tackles and three sacks on defense. I have a total of 11 pancake blocks on offense.”
