Imeokparia Talks About Three Visits

Running back Ed Imeokparia was busy with recruiting business last week and recently returned home from visits to three schools he's high on.

The 5-11, 192-pound back from Blair Academy in Blairstown, N.J. visited Tennessee, Wake Forest and UNC, and on Sunday he spoke with DeaconSports.com.

"They were all good visits," said Imeokparia. "I feel like I learn a lot every time I visit a school. They were all pretty similar in that I did the same things at each place. I checked out the campus and the facilities, and I was able to talk to a lot of the coaches.

"At Tennessee I saw everything from the campus to the stadium and the facilities. I did the same at Wake and UNC, too. I'm interested in all three of them and I feel like all three trips went well."

Imeokparia elaborated on his visit to Wake Forest. "The coaches at Wake Forest have been telling me that I would love it up there when I finally visited and now I see what they were talking about," he said. "I just like everything about the place. They're really heading in the right direction and they didn't win the ACC for no reason last year. Coach Grobe has them on the right track and you can tell he really knows what he's doing."

Imeokparia would like to take his official visits before making his decision. He isn't quite ready to narrow things down, because there may be new offers coming in.

"There are a few schools I'm waiting to hear from and I want to find out what all my offers are going to be before I make a decision or cut anybody out," he said. "I'm waiting on Tennessee - they haven't offered yet. I went down to Florida's camp recently and an assistant there told me he'd get up with me this week and let me know something. They liked me a lot. I heard from Ohio State last week, so there are just a lot of schools I'm waiting on. I want to see what all my options are."
