Deep Run (Glen Allen, VA) athlete Antone Exum recently visited each of the two Division 1A college football programs in the state of Virginia, including taking in Virginia’s season-opening loss to USC and Virginia Tech’s victory over Georgia Tech last weekend. Deep Run head coach Greg Kendall commented on Exum’s experiences at both schools as well as the latest on his standout senior’s recruitment.
Of the Virginia Tech experience, Coach Kendall said, “Antone was over there. I think he thoroughly enjoys those coaches. He was very happy to be there and he made a good day of it. It was a good, successful trip. I know he was appreciative of being invited.”
Of the Virginia experience, Kendall said, “I think he has a real high opinion of the school. He loved the atmosphere there. I think there was a lot of excitement that day. I’m sure the Cavaliers were disappointed in the outcome, but I don’t think it hurt Antone’s opinion of them.”
Exum, a 6-0, 210-pound prospect who projects likely as a defensive back or wide receiver on the next level, boasts double-digit scholarship offers including Colorado, Duke, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Virginia Tech and West Virginia, among others. While it seems a lot of college discussion has focused on Penn State, Tennessee and Virginia Tech, Coach Kendall notes that Exum has yet to narrow his list of schools.
“I hesitate to say anyone is not in there,” said Kendall, who later added that Exum is working with West Virginia on an unofficial visit. “There really is not anything new to report [in terms of naming favorites or narrowing the list of schools]. I think he is pretty uncommitted.”
Exum remains in no rush to make a college choice and could make official visits before coming to a decision.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if he did,” Kendall answered when asked if Exum might make official visits.
