Visits On Tap

After a weekend visit to West Virginia, this Pennsylvania defensive lineman has two more scheduled -- could a college decision then follow?

Red Lion High School's Bret Niederreither paid a return visit to West Virginia over the weekend, and he found several items that confirmed the first positive impressions of the school that he gained on an initial visit to campus.

"When I got down to West Virginia, I met with one of the strength coaches, and he showed me around the facilities, and gave me a tour," Niederreither said of this weekend's visit. "It was a good refresher, because I haven't been there in a while. Then I got to talk to Coach Bill Kirelawich and catch up with him.

"I really like the atmosphere there," he continued. I have some friends from my school that go down there, and they say it's something you can't experience at any other school. Everyone is 100% devoted to the team."

Neiderreither clearly likes WVU, and has also developed a good bond with Kirelawich.

"I think it's important to be pushed and challenged in everything you do, and Coach Kirlav does that. He is a great coach in everything he does. You know how he is feeling about you -- he tells you the truth. He is honest and I think that's very important to have that from your coach."

West Virginia is the only school to offer a scholarship to this point, but Niederreither has a couple of other potential visits lined up before he will make a decision.

"I think Syracuse will offer me if I go up and work out for them, so I am planning to do that, and I may also visit Maryland," he said. "I have to check with them. The last visit will be in early July, and if everything goes as planned, I may make a decision right after the Fourth of July. Things could change, but I would like to make my decision before summer is over."
