Penn State in Play for Randolph

After an early commit to Stanford, the Virginia linebacker is now taking more visits. Penn State will be among the stops.

Virginia linebacker Doug Randolph gave a verbal commitment to Stanford last June.

But the Woodberry Forrest 2013 recruit is now re-opening his search, and is including Penn State on the list of places he wants to check out. Running backs' coach Charles London stopped by Woodberry Forrest Wednesday.

“It was great, I really enjoyed talking to Coach London today,” Randolph said.

Randolph, who will visit Penn State in either May or June, said he chose to re-open his commitment because he wants to explore options.

“I just want to be open -- there are a lot of great schools to look at,” Randolph said.

Besides Stanford, Randolph has taken a visit to Notre Dame and also plans on stopping by Virginia. Happy Valley is on his visit list, too.

As for what he is looking for in a school, Randolph said early playing time isn't that big of a factor.

“It's more about the school and everything else,” he said. “Early playing time plays a part, and it all adds up, but the school has to be right, too.”
