Five-star defensive back Vernon Hargreaves III (Tampa, Fla./Wharton) will leave The Opening but remain on the West Coast for a few more days. The 5-10, 185-pound senior will take unofficial visits to Oregon, USC and Stanford.
These will be the first out-of-state visits for Hargreaves, who said he currently favors South Florida, Florida and Miami. After this trip he will visit more programs on the other side of the country, including Notre Dame, Alabama, Ohio State and Clemson.
As for his West Coast swing, Hargreaves said stops at Oregon State, Cal and UCLA are also possibilities.
"I'm not really sure what I'm looking for because I don't know what these schools have to offer yet," Hargreaves said. "I'm open for anything. I want to see everything I can."
While these visits will not get the nation's fourth-ranked prospect any closer to a decision, they will factor in his future plans and official visits.
"After this trip I'll know if I want to go to a school on the West Coast," Hargreaves said. "If I see some things I like we'll think about official visits and go from there."
