Big-time prospect Bobby Massie had initially stated that he would make all of his official visits after the end of his senior season. That was until Liberty Christian Academy (Lynchburg, VA) head coach Frank Rocco gave his team this coming Saturday off, freeing up a weekend for the 6-7, 330-pound offensive tackle/defensive tackle to make his first official visit. Massie will not have to travel far, as he and his mother will be in Blacksburg this weekend.
“Coach Rocco gave us this Saturday coming up off, so I had an open date,” Massie said. “I wanted the first [official visit] to be to Virginia Tech because it is an in-state school.”
Rated the #11 overall prospect in the state by TechSideline.com, Massie made several visits to Virginia Tech this summer. He also attended a home football game last fall, so this weekend’s experience will be very familiar.
“I’ve been there a lot,” said Massie, who attended Virginia Tech’s win over the University of Virginia last season. “I’ve got pretty much everything answered so far.”
Massie, who says “I still do not have a favorite,” still plans on making all five official visits before committing. His next scheduled official is to Clemson (weekend of December 1st) and he also has one scheduled to Georgia on the weekend of December 8th. Maryland, North Carolina and Tennessee all have offered and are under consideration for the final two official visit destinations.
These official visit experiences will be particularly important in determining where the senior big man feels he fits in the best.
“I want to see where I feel most comfortable at,” Massie said. “I want to go where I can see myself for four years even if I’m not playing football.”
In this his senior season, Massie, who plays right tackle and nose guard, has amassed 17 pancake blocks on offense and five sacks on defense in helping LCA to a perfect 4-0 mark. Virginia Tech is recruiting him as a player who could play offense or defense, as he impressed on both sides at Tech’s July one-day camp.
