"It's now a three-way tie," stated Pope, who claims offers from Clemson, North Carolina, Penn State, and Virginia Tech. "It's between UNC, Virginia Tech, and Clemson. I like [each schools'] playing time, and coaching staffs."
Regardless, Pope doesn't plan to commit anytime soon. The 6-foot-1, 203-pounder figures to take all five of his official visits with his three favorites already granted a slot.
"I plan to take my [official] visits before deciding," remarked Pope. "But I haven't set any yet. I plan on using all five [allotted visits]."
Pope, who's mostly being recruited to play safety, put on a show stopping performance in his high school's opening game leading them to a 61-14 win over Bowling Brook Academy. Pope posted 134 yards and three touchdowns one only 11 carries.
