Rivals250 target is set to visit Tech

Virginia Tech is expecting plenty of visitors for this weekend's spring game. A Rivals250 prospect is one of many stars expected on campus, and is looking forward to the Maroon and White game.

"I'm going to Virginia Tech's spring game this Saturday," Washington (D.C.) H.D. Woodson cornerback Adeboye Aromire said. "It's my chance to go over there and I'm excited. This is more than likely my last visit until the summer."

The trip to Blacksburg is Aromire's first ever to Tech.

"I can't wait," he said. "I've been told a lot about their facilities, the staff and atmosphere. I hear how it's a bright place with bright spirits. Everything is supposed to be on the up and I've heard their defense is looking really good. I'm told 101 different things and I want to see how all those things are.

"I think the visit could help in my decision. I've already seen three of my top six schools, but I'm not close to making a commitment. I want to try to get the rest of my offers."

Aromire is keeping in regular contact with his recruiter, wide receiver coach Kevin Sherman.

"I talk to Coach Sherman about twice a week," he said. "Coach Sherman and I are really cool. He talks to me about life and family, and what's going on. We're really tight."

The 6-foot-0, 192-pounder took another visit a couple weeks back to North Carolina for their spring game.

"It was cool," he said. "I got to meet the staff and my recruiting coordinator. They were really friendly. All of the coaches knew who I was and were glad to see me. They showed me great facilities and I got a good feel from the staff. I think they are going to play well this season. I'm considering the school a lot more now, it seemed like a great place."

One thing the Tar Heels didn't answer on his trip was his position.

"They talked about how I'd be a great fit with my athleticism, but they're not sure if I'm a cornerback or safety. I may have to work out at camp this summer to find out more."

With that in mind, do any schools lead at this time?

"Not at this point," he said. "I'm weighing all my options and all the schools look the same.

"I still am at five offers. Notre Dame said they would be sending one any day now and Georgia is expected to send one. Clemson and Rutgers are waiting and they seem close to pulling the trigger too."

Following his trip to Blacksburg this weekend, Aromire plans to head to the Penn State Nike Camp in May.
