2015 Blythewood linebacker Hassan Belton has been one of the busiest prospects on the camp and combine circuit this off season. He's jumped from unranked to a 3-star according to Scout.com and he's still working hard towards obtaining his first scholarship offer. Last weekend he made a pair of visits, to Appalachian State and Furman, and he gave us the scoop about them both.
"Appalachian State was great! I loved it! The coaches like me a lot and they are going to offer me very soon."
Enjoying a great deal of his visit to App State Belton told us the one thing that really stood out to him about his time there. He also talked about what the coaches had to say as well.
"Seeing the facilities. They are some of the best in the nation in my opinion."
"They said they loved my film and think I could maybe play as a freshman. Coach Stepp, my recruiter said he loved my size and mu film so they have to meet as a staff before officially offering me."
On a 1-10 scale Belton gave his App State visit a "8.5. The only thing that could of made it better was getting an official offer."
Prior to his trip up to see the Mountaineers Belton stopped in Greenville South Carolina to check out another program that is highly interested in him, the Furman Paladins. He talked about his time visiting with Furman as well.
"It was pretty good they showed a lot of interest. They said that they like my film a lot and that I fit their defensive scheme. They really didn't talk about offering or anything though."
Belton says getting to talk to and spend time with the Paladin coaches was the highlight of his trip to Furman.
This weekend Belton will be in Charlotte competing in the NFTC camp and Rivals Camp. After that he'll be on the road once again he says.
"As of right now I'm going to Appalachian State again the following weekend. Their Spring Game is on the 4th and their Junior day is on the 5th so I'm probably going to stay the night for that."
By then Belton is hoping that the Mountaineers staff has had an opportunity to sit down and discuss extending him a scholarship offer.
"That's what I'm hoping will happen."
