Bolling Schedules Final Officials

Lynchburg, Virginia offensive lineman Devin Bolling is one of the top uncommitted linemen in on the east coast in the class of 2009. As signing day approaches, Bolling is working to determine his college destination and has set up official visits to Wake Forest and Virginia Tech.

"It's down to Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, Connecticut, Liberty, and Boston College," Devin Bolling said. Bolling has already visited Boston College and spoke with DeaconSports about the final two official visits that he will take. "I'll be at Wake Forest that next weekend [16-18] and [Virginia] Tech right after that," Bolling said.

Although he maintains that all five teams have a shot at his services, most recruiting analysts believe that Virginia Tech and Wake Forest lead for his commitment.

"Wake is a small school with good academics," he said. "I've been there a number of times. I like Coach Lobo, Coach Billings -- that's my man -- Coach [McCartney.] I've been there a lot and talked to a lot of the guys on the team. The team says they love it and enjoy it there."

Following his Wake Forest visit, he will take a trip to Blacksburg, Virginia for his final official. "Virginia Tech, I've probably been to more than to Wake," he said. "Coach Beamer, Coach Newsome, the offensive line coach. I know the players there some and my quarterback, Logan Thomas, he committed there."

Bolling said that, although he is friends with Thomas, he will make the best decision for himself. "It doesn't affect me at all, really," he said. "I'm going to make the call on what is best for me and my family. I like Tech and its kind of close like Wake. If I do go to Tech, I will have someone I've been playing with for four years and can play with them four more years, but if I don't I will be good elsewhere. My mom likes Tech and she likes Wake, both."
