Powell Has Busy Summer Ahead

Tydreke Powell and his Ahoskie (N.C.) Hertford County High School entourage traveled to Chapel Hill on Saturday for North Carolina's spring game. However, after arriving late, the inclement weather forced the group to leave early.

"It went good," said Powell. "We watched the game, but we didn't stay there long, because it started raining so hard. We stopped at N.C. State, because it stopped raining."

During the visit Powell, who was joined by teammates Danny Dembry and LaMarkus Jenkins, was limited to the spring game, and didn't speak to members of the coaching staff.

Before the visit, Powell had done some tweaking to his favorites list.

"I can't say Carolina is still on top," said Powell. "I don't know who's on top, right now. It's just the Florida schools opened up things. N.C. State, they just come along and caused the door to be open, too."

Powell's new plan of action has him narrowing down his list of schools to five before the end of the summer.

Prior to the narrowing process, Powell will be making plenty of unofficial visits. He will unofficially visit Virginia Tech this weekend for the Hokies' spring game. He will hit up Florida on June 3rd and Florida State shortly after that. He will then camp at Miami, and squeeze in trips to Georgia, and Kentucky before it's all said and done.

After establishing his five, Powell will take his official visits and then announce his collegiate decision at the All-American Bowl, if selected.

With the recent additions of Kansas State and Cincinnati, Powell, a 6-foot-4 295-pound defensive tackle, now holds upwards of 15 offers.
