News and notes on some prospects in the Mid-Atlantic.
Raleigh (N.C.) Leesville Road wide receiver Braxton Berrios is closing in on his college decision. The 5-foot-10, 170-pound Berrios has already taken official visits to Miami, Oregon and South Carolina. The three-star wide receiver will take his final official visit to Tennessee on Oct. 5. Berrios will make his announcement on Oct. 12 at his high school at 12 p.m.
Richmond (Va.) Benedictine outside linebacker Raymon Minor has not set up any official visits yet, but said he knows the five trips he will take. The 6-4, 215-pound Minor will take official visits to Clemson, Miami, Nebraska, Ohio State and Wisconsin. The four-star prospect is also considering Virginia Tech and has been there several times, so an official visit is not really needed. Right now, the Hokies may be the team to beat.
Greenville (N.C.) Rose defensive end Kentavius Street has set up his first two official visits. The 6-3, 265-pound four-star prospect will go to Florida State on Nov. 2 and Miami on Jan. 17. As far as his other three visits, no dates have been set, but LSU, North Carolina State and Ole Miss will get the final three official visits.
Hampton (Va.) Bethel defensive tackle Ricky Walker is taking his time with the recruiting process. The 6-2, 275-pound Walker recently took an official visit to Nebraska. Next, will be a trip to Virginia Tech on Oct. 5. He has not decided if it will be an official or unofficial. Regardless, the Hokies and Penn State will get official visits at some point. He also mentioned a possible official visit to Michigan State. I think Virginia Tech leads, followed by Penn State.
Havelock (N.C.) running back Derrell Scott will take an official visit to Tennessee on Oct. 5. The Vols seem to be making a late push for the 5-11, 185-pound Scott and the visit to Tennessee is the only official visit he has scheduled at this time. One thing to keep in mind is that Tennessee signed Havelock defensive end Kendal Vickers in 2013 and he is good friends with Scott. Originally, Scott was going to make his decision on Oct. 25, but earlier today he announced that that is no longer be the case. No new date has been set. In my opinion, it comes downs to N.C. State, South Carolina and Tennessee. I believe Tennessee has some ground to make up, but a good trip to Knoxville will go a long way.
2015 Ashburn (Va.) Briar Woods receiver Brandon Polk will likely visit Alabama this weekend. The 5-10, 165-pound Polk has eight scholarship offers and is one of the fastest players in the 2015 class. It will be interesting to see where things go with the Crimson Tide after the visit. Currently, Virginia Tech and Stanford are his top schools. Both have offered.
2015 Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes wide receiver Jaason Lewis added an offer from UCLA on Wednesday night. The 6-3, 233-pound four-star prospect will visit Georgia Tech, one of his top schools, on Oct. 19.
