At this time of year, I find you usually get much more information from a parent. Mike Anastasio has kept me up to date on Chase Anastasio and he recruiting. Chase really liked his visit to Virginia. They had a lot of time to talk to Coach Groh. "It's going to be a tough decision. We had a good talk with Coach Groh."
The family was very impressed with the Willingham visit. "He is just an incredible guy. He really is a special guy. When you talk to these coaches, you understand why they are head coaches. That visit went real well."
Mike said Coach Beemer is coming in om Thursday of this week and Coach Groh will visit on the following Tues after the Virginia Tech visit. "We just got a call from Coach Diedrick, he will be here this week, probably on Wed. He is a great guy as well and Chase really likes him."
Mike said that Chase isn't given any indication for a leader right now. "You know, he won't really say anything to us. I do know he was really impressed with the ND situation. He really likes Coach Miles as well. When you look at it, he has 4 great schools to choose from."
Comments. I think Notre Dame is looking good here. I think Virginia will put up a big fight for him. I think the parents prefer Notre Dame but would not upset if he chose Virginia or Virginia Tech. Chase has a lot of friends at Virginia Tech so don't count them out. I still think Notre Dame will win this in the end.
