6-7, 330 pound lineman Bobby Massie has been close to ending the recruiting process in recent weeks, but before he makes an announcement, he still has two more visits to take.

Massie, who last visited North Carolina, says he will make another trip to Chapel Hill and to Blacksburg, Va. before announcing where he will play college football.

"[My last trip to North Carolina] went real well," he said. "I got to see everything from the football perspective. I had only been down for a basketball visit. It was real nice. They have a pretty campus. I really enjoyed the trip.

"They didn't offer. I am going to go back for a camp next week and see if they offer then."

When asked about his current leaders, Massie responded, "It is still Clemson and Georgia at the top. I like them the same. Then it is Virginia Tech. North Carolina would be in my top five if they offer."

Another ACC visit is schedule for this weekend.

"I am going to Virginia Tech this Saturday. I know a little bit about them already. I want to find out more from my position coach. I want to find out more about their program," said Massie.

Massie, who is from Virginia, says that distance could be a significant advantage for the Hokies.

"It is not but about two and a half hours away. That could be a big factor. My parents and friends could come see me play more," said Massie.

The massive lineman also said he'd like to find out more about the Tar Heels.

"I just need to find out more about their program. I know they have a new coach. They had a couple of rough seasons. They haven't been too good, but I want to know where they are going.

"After I come back from the North Carolina camp I will try to make a decision the next week. If not that week it will probably drag on into the season," he added.

Massie, who last visited Clemson in late June, was a first-team All-State selection on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball as a junior and also earned first-team All-Conference and second-team All-Area honors.
