Boston College, Virginia and Virginia Tech have offered 6-6, 240-pound junior offensive tackle Win Homer . Homer, who also has an offer from Marshall but favors the three ACC schools at this point, had the opportunity to attend games at Boston College and Virginia Tech last month. Coincidentally, UVa was the visitor in each game.
First up was BC on November 20.
“BC was awesome,” Homer said. “The stadium filled up pretty good. Walking to the game, I saw people tailgating and college kids getting pumped. One of the interesting things is, although it was not as big as Virginia Tech’s, the band played a big role. I thought it was cool and unique.”
And this past week, Homer visited Virginia Tech in what turned out to be a 2-day visit.
“We got there a day early,” Homer said. “We got there on Friday. We just decided to stop by the school, to see if they were having practice. My dad gave Coach Cav a text and we went on down to see the practice. I went in an offensive meeting and heard the keys to success. That was really cool. My parents and I had a meeting with Coach Cav and Coach Newsome.”
Of the meeting with Coach Cavanaugh and Coach Newsome, Homer said, “It was the first time my mom had met any of the people recruiting me. At some point I want to go with her to visit UVa and to visit BC. My parents had a lot of questions, like learning what the expectations were for student athletes and what my experience would be like. I wanted to know when people started playing and I got reassured that linemen get a few years to grow and develop.”
Heading to Lane Stadium on Saturday, the fan support was evident.
“I think one of the coolest parts of the visit was being part of a huge mob heading to the game. While we were driving to the school from the hotel, we came across huge caravans of Virginia Tech fans. The atmosphere is huge. There were tons and tons of fans. My mom described it as pageantry. I know what she was getting at because it is impressive,” Homer said.
