Two Down, One To Go

With one more visit to go, this Florida defensive back is closing in on a decision.

"I had a real good visit at West Virginia," Naples defensive back Junior Petit-Jean told "It was my first time seeing snow. I also didn't know they had the third biggest weight room in the nation. Coach Barwis and the weight program were really great."

Petit-Jean, who has already visited Wake Forest and has Wisconsin on the agenda for next weekend (1/26) said weather would not be a factor in his decision.

"That didn't bother me at all," he said. "There are a lot of little things that will go in to making my decision, but they all will go together where I will look at the overall experience. All three of these schools are great schools. After my Wisconsin visit, I will sit down and compare them, but it could come down to a gut instinct. I will probably make my decision the week after the Wisconsin trip."

All three of Petit-Jean's final contenders feature schools that are a big part of the community surrounding them, and that's no coincidence.

"I like that the schools and the cities are big parts of each other," Petit-Jean confirmed. "I kind of wanted to get out of state to go to college."

Petit-Jean was hosted by John Holmes on his WVU visit.

"We got to see a lot of the town and the campus, and it was nice," he added.

Already qualified and eyeing a major in the engineering or medical fields, Petit-Jean would find both fields of study waiting for him at WVU. At this point, the Mountaineers still slightly trail leader Wake Forest, however.

"Wake is still my leading team, but it's close. All three have a good chance. It's a tough decision," said the well-spoken Petit-Jean, who is thoughtfully considering everything each contender has to offer.

West Virginia is looking at Petit-Jean as either a free safety, spur or bandit.
