Tampa (Fla.) Plant teammates Rex Culpepper (three-star quarterback) and Scoop Bradshaw (three-star safety) will take the trip with the Culpepper family, Rex confirmed to CuseNation.com. The news was first reported by Stephen Bailey of Syracuse.com.
Culpepper seemed quite excited about the Babers hire calling it "awesome" in a text message to CuseNation.com previously.
"Coach Weiner has had a great relationship with him in the past," Culpepper added. "He has had major offensive success."
Culpepper said he has spoken with the offensive coordinator and head coach Dino Babers over the phone. Those conversations have made him buy into the direction of the program and solidified his commitment.
Scoop Bradshaw told Scout's Corey Bender that he was still committed, but his recruitment was "still open for sure." The visit this weekend will be a chance for the new staff to minimize any concerns Bradshaw has and to re-close his recruitment.
Needless to say, this is a huge weekend for the new staff.
