North Broward Prep's defensive end Tevin Westbrook was supposed to announce his decision today, but apparently needs a little more time, and will make his college choice tomorrow according to his head coach Roland Nottage.
"He's going to take one more day," said Coach Roland Nottage. "He's down to a couple of schools that we'll go over tonight. He has a school project due today and I'm going to sit down and talk with him and his s family after wards."
The 6-foot-6, 264-pound defensive end has already taken official visits to UCONN, Purdue, UNC, USF, and UF, with South Florida and Florida being the most recent over the last two weeks. This weekend four of those schools were still in the race, but as of Monday, that list is down to two.
"He's down to two schools now. I won't say who those two schools are, but there is a good argument for both of them," said Nottage. "I know who the two schools are, but I told him I'd keep it hush out of respect for the schools."
"The two schools that he has in mind each have legitimate arguments and he just to be certain that he makes the right choice," said Nottage. "He and his parents were talking last night, but they need another day. It's a five hour drive from Gainesville to here and they were tired."
In our recent article Coach Nottage said what Tevin is looking at the most in making his college choice.
"He's looking at academics, and he wants a good family atmosphere," said Nottage. "What's the best fit for him, and the guys he'll be with, and how they'll treat him, that's important to him, and that's what he's measuring. Nottage also added what's important is "Him feeling comfortable with the team he is with," said Nottage. "Being accepted, and being part of something that is going to be tight. What is the best fit for him, the best place for him to play, and where he can be an asset.That's what is most important to him."
After he finishes with his school project, Tevin, his parents and his coach will sit down and go over the two schools and decide the best choice for him to spend the next 4-5 years at.
"He just wants to make sure he makes the right decision," said Coach Nottage. "Which I can respect, I can truly respect that."
With a big looming decision on the horizon Schools will have to wait another day to find out his college choice.
We're going to sit down with his family and we're going to try and figure it all out," said Nottage "He told me that tomorrow he'll have his decision."
