Marietta (GA) junior quarterback Anthony Jennings has taken visits to Alabama, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Mississippi State and Tennessee. Tomorrow, he’ll head north for an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech, which is one of 15 schools that have offered.
“It’s a great BCS program,” Jennings said when asked for his impressions of Tech prior to tomorrow’s visit. “They are always in bowl games. I feel like it will be an exciting visit. I feel like the coaches are real. I want to get to know how they do things…how they run practices and everything.”
Following the trip to Blacksburg, Jennings will head to Morgantown to tour West Virginia. He is considering visits later this month to Mississippi and South Florida. All four of these programs have offered the 6’2″, 205-pound signal caller, who also boasts offers from Cincinnati, Colorado, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi State, North Carolina and Syracuse, among others. Jennings has visited colleges but has yet to narrow his list of schools.
“There are no schools I really like more than others right now,” Jennings said.
If possible, Jennings would like to commit sooner rather than later.
“I want to get it done before the season starts. I don’t want any distractions this season,” Jennings said.
In his junior season, Jennings threw for 1,981 yards, 18 touchdowns and only three interceptions. He rushed for 381 yards and seven scores while playing most of the season with torn cartilage in one of his knees.
“I had to come in more prepared for each game,” Jennings said when asked about playing injured last season. “I feel like that helped me in the long run. I couldn’t just escape pressure like I was used to.”
Looking ahead, Jennings feels his talents can suit virtually any offense on the college level. The type of offense a school runs is not a big factor when it comes to figuring out his college future.
“Offenses really don’t matter,” Jennings said. “I feel like I can impact any team with any offense they run. That really doesn’t have any effect on my decision.”
