Brookville (Lynchburg, VA) standout offensive/defensive lineman Devin Bolling had originally planned to make an official visit to Virginia Tech this coming weekend, but at this time that no longer appears likely. The 6-5, 270-pound senior may now travel to Blacksburg on January 30th, or he may decide he has all the information he needs to make a decision among Connecticut, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest.
“Most likely, I won’t make any more official visits [before a decision is made],” said Bolling, who has been to Boston College and Wake Forest on official visits. “I probably won’t have a decision this week, though.”
Bolling traveled to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, this past weekend for an official visit to Wake Forest. He rated the entire experience an eight on a scale of one to 10, with 10 being the best.

Bolling may make an official visit to U-Conn this weekend, but that is not set. If he does make an official visit to Tech, look for it to come on the weekend of January 30th, which is when his friend and teammate Logan Thomas plans to make his official visit.
Virginia Tech and Wake Forest seem to be the top two contenders right now and the talented prospect has visited each place numerous times. What could be the deciding factor?
“I don’t know what the difference will be,” Bolling said. “I’m just now kind of comparing.”
Virginia Tech is offering regular enrollment to Bolling, who is being recruited by head coach Frank Beamer as an offensive lineman. Wake Forest is recruiting him as an offensive lineman/defensive lineman, indicating that they feel he could contribute as a true freshman.
Countdown to Signing Day…
