Virginia likes Woodberry Forest (VA) junior C.J. Prosise as a safety. Virginia Tech likes him as a wide receiver. Both schools have now verbally offered the 6-2, 190-pound standout, who has also been asked by Boston College and Maryland coaches to visit their respective schools. Duke, North Carolina and Syracuse have expressed interest as well.

UVa offered Prosise on the February 2 Signing Day, while Virginia Tech came through in late February. He attended Tech’s February 26 junior day event shortly after picking up the offer.

“I’m considering both [Virginia and Virginia Tech] right now,” Prosise said. “Man, I was excited when I got the offers, but I want to keep my options open. I’m open right now.”

Of the recent visit to Blacksburg, Prosise said, “It was really good. I like the Virginia Tech facilities. I liked learning more about the football part.”

Prosise has seen both in-state ACC schools up close, but he says he doesn’t have enough information to make a true comparison just yet. He grew up a Virginia Tech fan but did not name a clear favorite.

“I haven’t really thought about the two in that way,” Prosise said. “I definitely like Virginia Tech’s football program. Virginia Tech is the bigger side in that aspect. UVa definitely has great academics.”

A starter at wide receiver and safety, Prosise, who ran a 4.59-second 40 at Duke’s camp last summer, also excels in special teams as a kick returner. He started for Woodberry Forest’s varsity basketball squad and will now transition to track, where he will run the 4X100 and 200 meters events. Of course, Prosise is also working to improve on the gridiron as well.

“I just try to get as much free time as I can, to try and get better every day,” Prosise said.

Recruiting-wise, Prosise has been invited to attended spring practices and games but has no concrete plans as of yet. He does not have a timetable for when he will make a college commitment.
