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.
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.''
