There was just one college game visit this fall for Good Counsel (Md.) three-star athlete Cam Hart (6-3, 190). And as a result, his recruitment has yet to kick into a higher gear.
Hart, Rivals.com’s No. 52 athlete and No. 9 player in Maryland for 2019, is up to seven offers, most recently from West Virginia, Boston College and Virginia Tech. This spring there will be more visits coming, which should give Hart a better idea of which schools are legit contenders.
“Nothing’s really changed,” he said. “Academics are really high for me, as are a place I can live without football, a place my parents are comfortable with and location. Basically, I want a place that feels like home.”
The lone visit Hart made this fall was to nearby FedExField in September for Virginia Tech’s win over West Virginia. The Hokies offered last month, but have been in contact throughout the fall.
“I like the school a lot, the campus and the people,” Hart said. “I have a great connection with the coaches. It’s pretty cool down there. I have a good relationship with them.”
Primarily, that relationship has been with assistant coaches Holmon Wiggins and Galen Scott, and it’s been one that has Hart firmly interested in Virginia Tech.
“Coach (Justin) Fuente has also made a couple of visits to my school,” Hart said. “I’ve had a couple of talks with him. (Wiggins and I) talk on a weekly basis. We’re just not letting the relationship go far away. He’s been hyping me up, but overall, it’s just good talks.”
Hart said he’s remained open to all of his offers. Four schools, however, have recruited him a bit harder than the others, including the Hokies.
“I talk to all the schools that have offered me,” Hart said. “I try to talk to every coach on a weekly basis. I hear the most from UVA, Virginia Tech, Boston College and West Virginia. I talk to all of them every week, but those four I have the longest conversations with. It wasn’t planned, it just happened with those four. They’re all just good.”
Each school that offered Hart has also varied in how it projects him on the field. The general consensus, however, is that Hart is a more than good enough athlete to see the field. This fall, he showed why, when he played three different positions.
