Cuffee Picks Up Tech Offer

Billy Cuffee

Coming into his final official visit, a trip to Virginia Tech, offensive lineman Billy Cuffee held six offers. He walked away from Blacksburg with his seventh.

"When I got there, Coach Stinespring helped me take my stuff to my room and he said he would like to extend me an offer," Billy Cuffee said. "I was excited."

The offer started the visit on a good note, and that tone rang throughout the trip to Blacksburg. "I liked it," Cuffee noted. "I liked it. I really liked their new facilities that they're almost through with. It's built in with the stadium's facilities there. I like the coaches. I like Coach Stinespring, he's my position and recruiting coach." This was Cuffee's second visit to Virginia Tech – he also visited for the Virginia Tech – Miami game earlier this year.

As opposed to his earlier visit, this weekend gave Cuffee a better look into the academic and social life at Virginia Tech. "We did a whole bunch of academic stuff and whatever we thought our major would be, we talked to a professor about it," he said. "We got a good look at the academic side of things."

Cuffee also got to know a few of Tech's players this weekend as well. "Nick Marshman was my host," he said. "He was good. He showed me a good time."

With the conclusion of his trip to Blacksburg, Cuffee has now visited Tech, Virginia, East Carolina, Maryland, and N.C. State, all which have offered. Temple and Marshall have also offered the Chesapeake, Virginia native. Cuffee has narrowed it down to the five schools he visited and hopes to decide soon.

"I don't know," Cuffee responded when asked what he plans to base his decision upon. "My mother and I are going to sit down all this week and talk about it."

Cuffee also hopes to make a final decision soon as well. "I'm trying to get one by the end of this week," he noted.

Note: After sitting out his junior season for medical reasons, Cuffee returned and played well in 2005, leading Deep Creek to an 8-2 record. "In my opinion, it went pretty good from not playing last year to what I did this year," Cuffee said. "We went 8-2. I had fun, that's basically what it's all about." Currently, Cuffee is running and lifting weights, preparing to take his game to the college of his choice.
