Bayes Still Planning to Visit?

Pack Pride talks with USF commitment Jimmy Bayes about potential plans to visit NC State.

USF linebacker commitment Jimmy Bayes has been a soft verbal for months. Is he still thinking about visiting other schools?

The short answer is yes but the extended answer is a little more complicated. Bayes isn't sure about all of the visits he will probably take although he does know one. It also seems like he is much more focused on his senior year than recruiting which is understandable.

"I still plan on visiting NC State. I talk to them every week. I'm still talking to Coach Huxtable," he said.

Bayes has followed NC State when he has been able to this year and the new coaching staff has made it an appealing choice even though he originally committed to South Florida.

"I like their scheme and I like the way they're really big on me. They want their linebackers to be athletic so I would be a good fit for that. They have great facilities and I think it would be a great place to go to school at," he said.

NC State is the only visit Bayes said he is mostly sure he wants to take. He did say that Louisville and even Southern Cal are among the other schools that have been recruiting him.

"I don't know right now, I'm just trying to finish my season and we want to go to back to the state championship game."

The Pack would like to take one more linebacker in the class of 2013. Bayes is rated a three-star prospect and the No. 80 outside linebacker in the nation by Scout.com.
