Scout.com and Derek Winter, one of the last few remaining big recruits that haven't gave a verbal to a school, talked about what he has on his agenda for this weekend and what teams are left in final schools to choose from.

Derek, rumors are every where about where you will visit this weekend, who is getting your last official visit?

"I will be going to Virginia this weekend for my last visit. They will be among the final colleges I will pick from."

What are the final colleges you will choose from?

"Auburn, Iowa, and Virginia are my final three."

So you have eliminated Georgia Tech and Florida from your final five?

"Yes sir, I just feel that those three are my best fit."

What about those three colleges that make you feel they are your best fit?

"I feel that all three have good academics and all three have the type of offense that fits my position the best. Plus they all three play in big time conferences helps too. I'd love to play in the Big Ten, ACC or SEC."

So, all three are recruiting you as a wide receiver and not a corner back?

"Yes sir, I want to play on offense and that is one of the things that will factor into my decision. Also, feeling comfortable with the coaches and the school as well are two other factors that will go into making my decision."

Derek isn't planning on a big time ceremony when it comes to announcing his decision, just calling the coach at the school he decides on and doing a signing at his high school. Derek says he should have his mind made up around Tuesday so three colleges have some waiting on their hands.
