Watch List's Da'Shawn Hand in no hurry

10/9/2012

Da'Shawn Hand isn't in any hurry to hit the road to explore his college options.

The ESPN Watch List defensive end had recently said he might start visiting schools, but that no longer seems to be the case.

"Nah, focusing on school," the junior stated via text message when asked if he'd be visiting any colleges soon.

Still, Hand could certainly change course. He has said any visit he takes probably will be planned at the last second, likely on a Thursday before he might travel on a weekend. He said he'll consult with his high school coaches before taking any specific trips.

One of the top 2014 prospects in the region, Hand will have plenty of options whenever he decides to take his visits. He has more than 40 scholarship offers.
