A decision was expected to have already come from Ardrey Kell (Charlotte, N.C.) tight end recruit Zico Pasut . The 6-3, 234-pound senior, who has narrowed his list to East Carolina, Virginia Tech and West Virginia, has yet to decide, though, and likely won’t be ready for another month or so.
“I was really close to deciding, but I sat down with a few coaches and talked it out. I just wasn’t sure yet,” Pasut said. “The best advice I took was to make official visits. I’m going to all three schools. After that, I hope to make a decision. I hope to do it as soon as I can. I hope one really sticks out because I wasn’t comfortable with my decision.”
Pasut plans to make his official visits the first three weekends in September. He has scheduled trips to East Carolina (September 6th) and Virginia Tech (September 13th) and is hoping to finalize the trip to Morgantown soon. It seems unlikely that he would make a decision without having visited all three schools first.
“I want to make all three [official visits]. The reason is because there wasn’t any school I liked way more than the others,” said Pasut, who also will attend the ECU/Virginia Tech game on August 30th. “I don’t care about the numbers, about how many tight ends would be in front of me on the depth chart. Whichever one I like the most on my visits is the one I’ll choose.”
On these trips, Pasut will view the schools from a regular student’s perspective as well as an athletic perspective.
“I want to go where I would enjoy it if I didn’t play football,” Pasut said. “If something happens and I couldn’t play football, I’d still want to go to the school. I do also want to go where the coaches really want me.”
After discussing the possibility of enrolling in January of 2009 at either East Carolina or West Virginia, Pasut has decided that he would enroll in the summer of 2009 if he chooses either of those programs. Virginia Tech continues to recruit him as a grey-shirt, meaning Pasut would enroll in Blacksburg in January of 2010.
The Tech coaches are in hot pursuit of the Tar Heel state standout.
“Virginia Tech is actually recruiting me the hardest,” Pasut said. “They are always sending me letters and shooting...
