As the college football season moves along, Week 8 figures to be pivotal for many programs on the field. It is also shaping up to be a key weekend for recruiting visits.
Teams usually use most of their home games to host visiting recruits, as it gives them a chance to show off many facets of their program. If a visit goes well enough, a recruit could make a commitment before he leaves to go back home.
This week, a national rivalry game has a long list of elite recruits who will be in attendance, and eight visitors are uncommitted prospects. However, the weekend's biggest game will be in ACC country, and will be seen personally by a 5-star linebacker. Also, a pair of underrated important visits are also on this list.
