First Colonial (Virginia Beach, VA) safety/linebacker Nick Dew plans to visit Virginia Tech, the program that has been his favorite throughout, this Saturday. But first, the 6-2, 195-pound senior traveled to Charlottesville this past Saturday for a look at the University of Virginia.

The visit certainly did not help Virginia’s chances.

“It’s nothing bad about Virginia. It’s just not a place where I’d think I’d be most comfortable,” Dew said.

Dew didn’t stay in Charlottesville long, leaving for Virginia Beach before game’s end.

“I got there 15 minutes before kick-off, so I didn’t get to speak to the coaches or recruits or anything,” Dew said. “As the game went on, things just went downhill. We ended up leaving before the end to miss the traffic, so I didn’t get to see the coaches.”

Dew isn’t ruling out Virginia and didn’t rule out the possibility of making another visit to go more in-depth with the coaching staff. For now, though, the Cavaliers appear to be on the outside looking in. Very much on the inside is Virginia Tech, Dew’s childhood favorite.

The Under Armour All-American has visited Virginia Tech twice so far this year but has yet to commit. Is there a chance that changes this Saturday?

“I’m not really sure right now,” said Dew, who isn’t sure at this point if the visit will be an official or an unofficial visit. “It depends on how things play out. If I really enjoy the environment, I might. I don’t know how things are going to go.”

If a commitment does not come soon, Dew knows of at least one other program he would like to see.

“I plan on checking out West Virginia soon,” Dew said. “Nothing is scheduled, but that is a school that has been on my mind a lot.”

2-1 on the season, First Colonial fell to Salem last week. Dew, who primarily plays running back and linebacker/defensive end, was one of five players to sit out the game due to injury. He’ll return for this Thursday night’s contest against Tallwood and is anxious to help his team improve to 3-1.

“Right now, we’re looking extremely good,” Dew said. “Last Friday was a hard loss, but I think we’ll be hitting Tallwood pretty hard this year.”

Purdue is the only program recruiting Dew for offense
