Niederreither Making Visits To Make Decision

Red Land (Lewisberry, PA) defensive end Bret Niederreither recently opened up his recruitment after committing to West Virginia. His official visit to Temple was the first of two official visits before he'll make his college choice.

Bret Niederreither rated his trip to Temple an 8 ½ or a 9. "I got a chance to tour the campus and hang out with my host who is the starting quarterback." Bret also attended the Temple – Maryland basketball game. "The trip was very good."

Next up for Bret will be an official visit to Georgia Tech. "Friday morning I will be flying down to Atlanta to visit Georgia Tech." The visit will be the last one for Bret. "I will come return home Sunday and weigh my options and probably decide on Monday where I want to go."

Niederreither will be making the trip to Atlanta without his parents. Bret feels this is the best way for him to decide if Georgia Tech is where he wants to be. "I want to be able to look at Georgia Tech and if I really feel it is the place for me, I won't have any pressure of staying close to home." This is a decision Bret wants to make on his own.

Bret will be looking to see if he can establish a good relationship with the coaches. "My recruiting coach (Coach Joe Speed) and I have a good one so meeting the rest of the staff will be a big plus."

Meeting the strength coach at Georgia Tech is something else that Bret is looking forward to on his visit this coming weekend. "I love working out so that's something that is important."

Finally, Bret is also looking to see if he feels comfortable on campus. "When I am walking around and talking with people, do I feel at home and comfortable with them and the campus, school, and city."

Bret has four schools in mind in making his final choice on signing day. "Temple, Penn State, Wake Forest, and Georgia Tech are my final four." He does not have a current leader among those four.

Niederreither will be going into his visit at Georgia Tech hoping to get a good feel for the school. "I'll come home and weigh all the options." Distance from home will not be a factor in making that decision. If a school feels like home to me and is 2 hours or 12 hours away, then that is the school I will choose."
