West Mesquite (Tex) High quarterback Chason Virgil thought he had completed his recruiting process after committing to Mississippi State during the spring, but the three-star prospect now finds himself searching for a new home.
The 6-foot, 170-pound prospect unexpectedly learned last week that Mississippi State was pulling their scholarship offer forcing him to renew relationships with schools that had expressed an interest.
Prior to making his pledge to the Bulldogs, Virgil had collected more than a dozen offers that included Arizona State, Clemson, Florida, Missouri, Nebraska and UCLA.
Louisville is now involved and will host Virgil on an official visit this weekend.
Leading his team to a 10-1 record and into the state playoffs, Virgil has thrown for 2,361 yards, 35 touchdowns, and six interceptions, while also rushing for 369 yards and eight touchdowns this season.
Virgil is described by recruiting analysts as a quarterback with impressive accuracy, consistency and strong leadership qualities.
"He throws a catchable and accurate ball, spinning it well consistently," said Scout.com National Recruiting Analyst Greg Powers. "Does not have that huge top end cannon arm, but is an all-around play maker., Once you sleep on him he will slash the defense for big gains and scores."
