Robinson (Fairfax, VA) defensive end Jordan Stanton will leave later today for an official visit to James Madison University. Next weekend, the 6-4, 240-pound senior prospect heads to Old Dominion for another official visit.

“I feel like I made a good run in my two years,” Stanton said. “I’ll miss high school football, but it is time to move on to the next level. I just thank my coaches and my mom for everything. They really helped...
