The Cleveland High School (Tennessee) rising senior will head to Mississippi State on Thursday and will travel to Pittsburgh seven days later.

"I'm going to try to get to Clemson and Vanderbilt as well," he recently told "It's just a matter of finding time in my schedule."

The four-star currently considers the four schools as his favorites.

Chad Voytik has committed to playing in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
"The four, in no particular order, right now—the ones I'm going to be visiting and most considering would be Mississippi State, Pittsburgh, Clemson and Vanderbilt," he said.

Voytik said, "All four offenses are really close to what I'm looking for."

He broke down the positives that each school has to offer.

Clemson: It's a great place to play—the atmosphere and all the tradition there, along with coach [Chad] Morris and coach [Dabo] Swinney and the rest of the staff. It's really close to my hometown.

Mississippi State: They were the first ones to offer me and show that confidence. I know their staff really well. I like them.

Vanderbilt: It's a great education, a real prestigious school. Their new head coach is impressive as well. I know that the offense fits.

Pittsburgh: Their situation is really good there. Their staff is real excited and good at what they do. I know that their offense fits my talents.

Voytik said a decision will be reached before the start of his senior season, possibly before the end of the summer.

The U.S. Army All-American Bowl participant has qualified for the Elite 11 finals in California, which runs July 18-22.

As a junior, he completed 121 of 221 passes for 1,850 yards and 17 touchdowns and rushed for 439 yards and seven touchdowns. Top Stories
