It hasn't been long since defensive ends coach Marion Hobby started recruiting West Orange High School (Winter Park) sophomore Corey Vereen.
And last Monday, the 6-foot-2, 225-pound sophomore made his first visit to Tigertown.
"It was very organized. This being my first visit to a college, the campus was great. It's a good program with smart coaches and a great head coach," he told CUTigers.com after the visit.
Vereen and his father toured campus with director of high school relations Mike Dooley.

He was also able to meet with Hobby and head coach Dabo Swinney.
What stood out about the visit?
"I liked how all the buildings were together," Vereen said. "The football field is right by the campus. It's a very tight-knit community. It shows everybody believes in the program. It's a homey environment."
Vereen also plans to make visits to South Carolina and Florida State laster this year.
As a sophomore at West Orange, he finished with six sacks.
