First Colonial (Virginia Beach, VA) safety/linebacker Nick Dew has had praise following each of the visits he has made to Virginia Tech this year. This past Saturday’s trip for the Nebraska game was no different, but is the 6-2, 195-pound senior any closer to a decision?
“I went to Tech and absolutely enjoyed everything,” Dew said.
“They let us walk through the tunnel and chill with the players before the game. I saw ‘Enter Sandman’ for the first time. I’ve seen it on YouTube a lot, but it didn’t match up to seeing it in person. I watched pre-game warm-ups and chilled with Coach Beamer on the field. It was crazy because half the players knew who I was.”
Virginia Tech continues to be the favorite for Dew, who returned home without giving a commitment to the coaching staff. That could change next weekend, when the Under Armour All-American prospect plans to return to Blacksburg for another visit.
“Right now I’m not sure,” Dew said of when a decision may come. “I’m just taking it day by day. I know next week I’ll be back. This time, I’m bringing my mom. If she feels good about it and the visit is good, then maybe I’ll decide then. If not, I’ll probably look at some other schools before I decide.”
Virginia Tech’s coaches talked to Dew before and after the game on Saturday.
“I talked to Coach Beamer. Before the game, I went up to his office,” Dew said. “I talked to Coach Foster, Coach Newsome and Coach Cavanaugh. They were all real nice. They didn’t pressure me about committing.
“Coach Beamer and Coach Foster were just seeing if I was still interested. They wanted to show me around more on game day. Coach Beamer told me he was glad I was there. He hoped I’d become a Hokie. He said he’d be glad to have me, but he told me to find the right fit.”
A coach from West Virginia will visit Dew at school tomorrow. Virginia remains in picture, but the Cavaliers lost significant ground as a result of Dew’s experience at the TCU game last weekend. Dew also has not ruled out other schools such as Connecticut, Michigan State and Purdue, but Virginia Tech remains the school to beat.
