4-star CB Chestnut Making Another Trip to RU

Four-star cornerback Terrell Chestnut of Pottsgrove High (Pottstown, Pa.) spend a day on the Rutgers campus back in March. At the time, he told ScarletReport.com he enjoyed the visit thoroughly, and now he is getting ready for a return trip. Chestnut also talks about his trimming his list, and gives an indication of whether or not that will happen soon.

Now that Terrell Chestnut's track season is over, the Pottsgrove High (Pottstown, Pa.) four-star cornerback plans to give serious consideration to trimming his list to a probable top 10.

While Chestnut wasn't ready to publicly name schools that will make his top 10, he continues to hold Rutgers in high regard, and will be on the Scarlet Knights' campus this weekend.

"I'm very interested in them, but at the same time I'm wide open right now,'' the 5-foot-11, 180-pound Chestnut said. "I'm going to be going back up there within the next week. They're having a function up there.''

It will mark Chestnut's second visit to Rutgers in three months. He, along with family members, spent a day in March touring the campus.

Since that trip the only schools Chestnut said he visited were Penn State and West Virginia because of a busy track schedule. His best time in the 200 meters this spring was 23.35 seconds, and he will continue to run this summer in USATF meets.

That track schedule and desire not to spend too much time on the recruiting road will keep his visits down in the next few months.

"I want to see South Carolina, LSU, a couple schools like that,'' Chestnut said. "I'm interested in those schools so I want to go and see them.''

Chestnut holds close to 20 offers, and one school he wants to learn more about is Michigan State.

"I didn't know much about Michigan State, but that's a school I really want to get to know more about,'' he said. "The coach is really nice.''

At some point in the near future, Chestnut said he will begin weighing his options and trim schools from his list. He has no clear-cut time frame for eliminating schools, though.

"I'm getting close to doing it,'' he said. "I'll have more time to think about it now that track season is finished. I'm probably going to do a top 10, and then narrow it down from there.''
