Football Recruiting Visits Return

Three more big weekends remain in football recruiting season before signing day in February. The first of those three begins today with visits expected from several East Coast players.

A trio of New Jersey players from Woodrow Wilson High School in Camden, defensive back Jamil Tyson, linebacker Melik Brown and defensive tackle Patrick Faulk, start the list.

Tyson (6-1, 175, 4.8) could be either a corner or a safety in college, while Faulk (6-3, 255, 5.3) could likewise play on either side of the ball.

Brown (6-2, 225, 4.6) has committed to North Carolina, but grades could be an issue, and the fact that he is taking a visit shows that the race for his services is not over.

Two Virginia players who could also visit are linebacker Marvin Mitchell of Norfolk and defensive back Jimmy Williams of Hampton.

With the Mountaineers' dearth of players at linebacker, Mitchell (6-2, 230) could get a chance to contribute early. Williams (6-3, 195, 4.55) is a top 50 safety who could also see a chance at early playing time.

Also on the scheduled visit list is offensive lineman Dan Mozes, who has already committed to WVU.

More names to watch for visits include quarterback Patrick Byrne (6-3, 180) of T.R. Miller High School in Alabama, wide receiver Rayshawn Boldin (6-5, 190, 4.6) of John F. Kennedy High School in Cheektowaga, New York and juco wide receiver Eddie Jackson (6-4, 220) of Coffeyville, Kansas.

Other players who could be in this weekend, but who might also be scheduled for another time, include RB/DB Jerramy Scott (5-10, 180, 4.5) of Dwyer High School in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida and defensive back Brandon Myles (6-2, 180, 4.6) of Goochland County High School in Virginia. Myles is a two sport player who hopes to play both basketball and football in college. Myles was an all region selection at defensive back and as a kick returner this year.
