CLIFTON, Va. – There are now 23 offers on the table for Oxon Hill (Md.) four-star wide receiver Daniel George. But as George said Sunday at the Washington, DC stop of Nike’s The Opening Regionals, a few of those schools are getting more attention than others.

Since the first of the year, George has taken visits to Penn State, Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia Tech. A few aspects of those visits particularly stood out. And as of now, George is eyeing a time frame for a decision.

“I would say, Penn State, Maryland and Virginia Tech mostly stood out,” George said. “With Penn State, it’s because of Coach Gattis, the relationship I have with him and Coach Franklin. Maryland, it’s the home school and I know everybody there. Virginia Tech stands out because of Coach Fuente and the receiver situation they have over there.”

George, No. 216 in the Rivals250, last visited the Hokies in January for junior day. He’s stayed in touch regularly since then. He’s also talked with a Virginia Tech connection he has.

“I don’t really have a list, one, two, three or four,” George said. “But V-Tech would definitely be on my list if I had one right now. Just the school, DeJuan Ellis, who’s a quarterback committed there, I’ve known him since I was young. If I got a chance to play with him, that’d be great.”

George said he’s also talked steadily with the Hokies’ coaching staff. Assistant coach Holmon Wiggins has been his primary recruiter.

“They’re just great guys,” George said. “I had a very good conversation
