Is the time about right?

It's anticipated that after a recruit visits a lot of schools that have offered that a commitment is close to follow. Will Compton falls into that bucket of recently visiting a lot of schools. How close is one of the top players in the Midlands Region to actually pulling the trigger on a commitment and ending the process?

Things are finally slowing down, on the visit-front, for Will Compton, but that just means that another part picks up. The rest was short following the trips and now it's time to go to work.

"I was busy with visits," Compton said. "Things are finally calmed down now, for the past two weeks or so, and since the Sunday after I got back I have been training again. I have started back into my routine and my diet again."

Compton isn't focusing on one main thing when it comes to quick improvement in his game before the season. Compton wants to improve everything about himself in every aspect of the game.

"Really I don't have anything that I am completely focused on. My goal is to get better in every area and in every aspect of the game. I want to get better mentally, physically and football-wise on the field."

After visits come the questions about a commitment and a timeframe. Compton thinks that he would like to go through the process a bit this fall, but admits that anything can change and he might end the process at anytime.

"I really don't think that I am in a position that I want to commit right now. I really would like to take all five of my official visits, early in the year, and be done with them hopefully by October or early November."

"Hopefully, this wouldn't go too far into November. I would really like to take them more in August, September and October. Hopefully I would have a decision by then, but I could also want to commit at anytime."

Before the start of the season for Compton, he is looking to take a last set of trips to a few schools to check out fall camp practices. It's that one last chance to get a look before his senior season starts.

"Right now I am looking to get down to a couple of team practices in August. I know that things start up around August 4 and I know that there is a scrimmage at Iowa on August 18th that I would like to attend."

"I know that I am going to get to Missouri, hopefully to Nebraska, and watch a couple of practices. Right now, I am just focusing on my upcoming season, but I would really like to get to a couple of practices to get a better feel for everyone."
