Four-star quarterback prospect Dwayne Haskins, Jr., isn’t far from making his college choice. Barring a change in plans, The Bullis School (Potomac, MD) star has only four visits left to make before he announces where he will attend college.
“I definitely want to be committed before I go out to the [Elite 11 Finals on June 14], so probably early June or late May,” Haskins said.
The 6’3”, 200-pound junior heads to Rutgers today for the Scarlet Knights’ Spring Game before heading to Virginia Tech for the Hokies’ Spring Game on Saturday. Haskins plans to trek to Notre Dame and Florida sometime in the next month.
