Featherston beginning to take visits

MATTHEWS, N.C. - With the college football season in full swing, Lorenzo Featherston has returned to the road for recruiting visits.

"I'm probably going to go somewhere [this] weekend," Featherston said. "I'm pretty much planning things out week to week."

Featherston, a 6-foot-7, 216-pound defensive end from Greensboro (N.C.) Page, was supposed to visit Auburn this past weekend for its game against Arkansas State, but those plans fell through.

Outside of rescheduling the visit to Auburn, Featherston plans to attend a game at North Carolina. He's unsure what game that will be, though.

"[UNC] is pretty high on the board," Featherston said. "It's close to home and it's a good school."

Featherston is also looking to revisit Florida, Florida State, NC State, and Tennessee, and made his first visits to Georgia and South Carolina.

During college football's opening weekend, Featherston attended Clemson's 38-35 victory over Georgia game in Death Valley.

"It was pretty good," Featherston said. "[The atmosphere] was amazing. Basically, [the Clemson coaches] told me they'd love to have me on board. They pretty much said what they had to say."

Right now, these visits are of the unofficial variety. At some point soon, he plans to begin taking official visits. His only definite official stop is Oregon.

"I say Oregon, because that was my favorite team growing up," Featherston said.

Featherston denies having a leader or a list of favorite schools.

"I'm still trying to figure that all out," Featherston said.

College coaches began calling Featherston last week. Although he fielded several calls, he has already began to communicate regularly with a few schools, including Marion Hobby (Clemson), Chris Kapilovic (UNC), Brad Lawing (Florida), and Clayton White (NC State).

"They're just staying in contact with me," Featherston said.

Specifically with Kapilovic, Featherston spoke to him on Wednesday.

Featherston was selected to play in the Under Armour All-American Game. He'll have his jersey presentation this week.

"It's an honor," Featherston said.

Page's 2013 season has gotten off to a rocky start – winning one of its first three games. With Featherston not in the lineup with an undisclosed injury, Butler easily dropped Page, 56-14, on Friday night.
