He enjoyed different things about Michigan and Virginia.
”Michigan is a childhood favorite of mine because I had family that played there in the past, so I grew up following them,” said the 6-foot-4, 295-pound Vastardis. “It was kind of like a dream come true to get to practice inside their stadium. The tradition also stood out to me while I was there.
”With UVa, I just love it down there. It’s just nice and the coaches are nice, too. They taught me a lot of new techniques and I had the most interaction with the coaches at that camp, which was really good. (Offensive line) coach (Scott) Wachenheim seemed pretty interested in me.”
While recruiting is important, Vastardis’ main focus is on his season.
”We’re going to take it one step at a time, but the ultimate goal is to win states,” he said.
”If we are going to accomplish that, everyone has to buy in and work as hard as possible every day.”
He claims no favorites at this time and unsure about where he will visit this fall.
