One Visit Left

It was believed Godby standout running back <b>Roy Upchurch</b> would announce his college destination this week. The three star back is planning to visit the Seminoles before he makes his final decision.

Roy Upchurch informed Head Coach Shelton Crews, from Godby High School, of his plans.

"He (Roy) told me today that he still planned to go on his visit to Florida State. It could change, but I think he is still going to take his last visit," said Crews.

This past weekend, Upchurch spent time in Razorback country. Arkansas has stepped up their recruitment of the Godby star.

"As far as I know, it went like every other visit. It was as good as the rest of his other visits. I know he had a real good time at Alabama. I think his visit this weekend was just as good."

The recruiting process has been intense, and Coach Crews is making sure he is there when his running back needs him.

"Roy goes to the grocery store, the mall, or the gas station and he is asked the same question every day, 'Where are you going to go?' I am there for his support. I don't want to be the guy that asks him every day what he is going to do. I want him to go with his heart," said Crews.

"I don't think a whole lot has changed in the past couple of weeks. I think it is still between those three schools (Alabama, Florida State, and Arkansas). The last school he declared as his leader was Alabama. I don't think that has changed. All three of those schools are recruiting him very hard, but Alabama has been recruiting him the longest. They have been on him since the get go. They (Alabama) have a great shot at landing him."

A decision could come before his visit with Florida State, but Upchurch plans to announce his college decision Sunday night.

"When I talked to him today, he said it would be Sunday night. It could be before then, but I think it will not be anytime after that," said Crews.
