College Football Recruiting Week 9 Visits That Could Lead to Decommitments
This is a huge week for college football, as we have several games that feature great teams, interesting match ups and BCS implications.
Of course, with Notre Dame traveling down to play Oklahoma, that will be the game of the week.
With big games come many recruits visiting campuses to check out a program up close and witness the game-day atmosphere. This weekend, there will be many recruiting visits being made all over the country—several of those visits will be made by recruits already committed to other schools.
Here are some Week 9 college football recruiting visits scheduled for this weekend that could lead to decommitments:
Isaac Savaiinaea to Stanford
This is an interesting visit that Stanford needs to go well, because Savaiinaea is committed to Stanford. He's one of their prized commitments for this class, but is looking around a bit.
If this visit doesn't go perfectly for Stanford, they could see Savaiinaea opt to sign with Texas A&M, Notre Dame or Florida.
Luke Del Rio to Oregon State
I know this visit has already taken place, but I still wanted to mention it: Del Rio tripped to Oregon State last weekend, per Greg Biggins of Scout.com.
The visit seems to have gone well, and now Del Rio is really pondering if Oklahoma State is where he should be committed. Look for the Beavers to keep working hard on Del Rio to flip him into flipping TD passes in Corvallis instead of Stillwater.
O.J. Howard to Florida
Like Del Rio's visit to Oregon State, this visit also took place last week, but deserves to be mentioned: Howard made his way to Gainesville for the Gators' blowout win over South Carolina.
According to Tide Nation, Howard had a good time at UF and spoke to Will Muschamp. He remains solid to Alabama, but interestingly stated that he wants to visit Florida again.
Demorea Stringfellow to Nebraska
Stringfellow is committed to Washington, but his first official visit will be to Nebraska, not Montlake.
At 6'3", 215 pounds, many colleges want Stringfellow because he's a big and physical receiver with strong hands who can bully cornerbacks on the perimeter.
E.J. Levenberry to Oklahoma
Following Levenberry's recruitment, I think he could be seriously considering looking around. He's committed to Florida State, but I just get the sense that he may feel the need to check out other schools.
Sooner Nation lists him as an official visitor for the the Oklahoma vs. Notre Dame game, so he will be in Norman this weekend.
If this visit goes well and Levenberry likes what he sees from the Sooners, then a decommitment from Florida State could be brewing.
