Scout300 linebacker Nathan Proctor details Hokies official visit

Indian Head (Md.) Lackey outside linebacker Nathan Proctor visited Virginia Tech this past weekend, and has also narrowed his recruitment.

Nathan Proctor made his official visit to Virginia Tech already carrying a ton of knowledge about the Hokies, but he wanted to see what life was like away from the football field.

The Indian Head (Md.) Lackey standout and the No. 11 outside linebacker in the nation returned home pleased with what he saw, and also said the scope of his recruitment narrowed. He said he will make official visits to Pittsburgh and Penn State in January, and then make his decision.

"I'm looking at Penn State and Pitt (visits) in January," Proctor said. "I'm not looking at that many (schools). What is set up is where I am looking at. It's just those (three). There isn't much more to look at for me. It's those officials and that's it."

In returning to Virginia Tech for his weekend official visit, Proctor saw more of the campus, watched a light practice and spoke with the coaches, but he already knew a lot about the program.

"I wasn't really looking for a big message from the coaches," he said. "I know how much they want me. They expressed that on multiple occasions. For me, it was to see what was going on around the campus, see what the players are like, and see what the players really do other than football and school.

"I saw there was a lot of fun stuff to do. There's different things. You have the mall, you have you video games, and they hang out with each other and have fun."

Proctor said he spent a lot of time with Hokies defensive tackle Ricky Walker, who served as his host.

"I got a good vibe from (the players)," Proctor said. "It's kind of hard to explain. It's a brotherhood."

Proctor also watched as the Hokies practiced in preparing for Belk Bowl against Arkansas.

"It was a light practice from what I saw," he said. "It was a quick bowl practice. It wasn't a rigorous practice. It was something to keep the guys up to speed with the game instead of just taking a break."
