LB Damario Jeffery (6-3 213) of Columbia made an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech Friday with the academic coach from his school. "It was great," Jeffery said just before leaving the campus for the return trip to Columbia. "I got to see a little film and see how they coach the safeties. I'm glad I got the one on one time with the coaches. I talked to Frank Beamer for about 15 minutes. I spent about 30 minutes with Bud Foster (defensive coordinator), and about 15 minutes with the defensive backs coach Torian Gray. It keeps Virginia Tech in the running. I'm waiting to see if they have another Virginia Tech type of season with 11 wins and a bowl game."
But Jeffery said he still has a top three of USC, Alabama and Auburn. "I would say South Carolina is number one overall," Jeffery said adding he's not close to making a commitment.
Next week, Jeffery said he might take a trip to Alabama or he might attend a camp at USC.
