Newsome athlete Patrick Jolly talks West Virginia visit

Florida athlete Patrick Jolly recaps his mid-week West Virginia visit.

Lithia (FL) Newsome athlete Patrick Jolly completed the second leg of his college road trip on Wednesday, visiting West Virginia and spending the entire day in Morgantown. 

"Overall, it went really good," said the 6-foot-1, 177-pounder. "I got to see a lot of the campus and learn things I didn't know about before. I got to talk to the coaches and the staff walked me through the everyday routine there."

Jolly spent the majority of his time with cornerbacks coach Doug Belk, and the two discussed a variety of topics, including both football and academics. The main topic of conversation, though, centered around where Jolly would play at the next level. In high school, the 2018 prospect is a star at running back, wide receiver, and defense back. All three are a possibility at West Virginia. 

"They said they can see me playing either side of the ball, but to pick which side I feel most comfortable playing," said Jolly. 

As it stands now, Jolly would prefer "the ball in (his) hands" on offense. Outside of that, he's not ready to make any other decisions on his future. Jolly has an unofficial top six of Iowa State, North Carolina, Toledo, UCF, USF, and West Virginia, but he does not intend to make a decision until after a few official visits. At the end of this road trip, he will have seen all of the schools in that group except Iowa State.
