Chancey Aghayere, the 6-foot-3, 220-pound five-star defensive end from Garland, Texas, says he plans to make a decision following his Oct. 6 visit to LSU. Aghayere has already officially visited Florida on Sept. 8 and is visiting Notre Dame on Sept. 21.
"I just want to make sure I'm comfortable," Aghayere said. "That's the key for me. I think I'll probably know when I feel it."
Although he still denies a leader, Aghayere says either Texas, Florida, Notre Dame, LSU, Louisville and Oklahoma will win his signature. All of his favorites have offered and Scout.com's No. 6 defensive end has over 30 total scholarships.
"I loved my visit to Florida," he said. "The stadium and the whole atmosphere there was great. It was big and loud. I really didn't think it would be that loud. I really liked the Gator Walk with all the fans supporting them as they enter the stadium. That was cool. The fans really love the team.
"The whole campus at Florida is really nice and they are building a new weight room which will be great," Aghayere said. "Plus they are playing really well right now. I love how fast they are and how the defense just gangs up on the ball on every play. I like their chances of repeating as national champs."
While Notre Dame won't be winning the national championship this year, Aghayere says the Irish's surprisingly difficult 0-3 start isn't going to affect his decision. "They are just like us," he said, referring to the fact that Garland has also started 0-3. "They are a good team that is just starting slow. I haven't really had a chance to see any of their games yet, so I don't know how they look, but I like the coaches and all their tradition."
Growing up, Aghayere says he followed Texas, but doesn't plan to take an official visit to the Longhorns. "It's close to home and I like their history," he said. "They are doing pretty good so far and I think they'll just keep getting better."
Aghayere has already visited Louisville and Oklahoma unofficially and says he probably won't take official trips to either. "I'm gonna make my decision after I visit LSU (Oct. 6)," he said.
"I've been to Oklahoma and I really like their defense and the team always does well. They have a great program with good tradition.
"LSU will be like the last school that I haven't seen yet and I should be able to make a decision after the trip," he said. "They are playing great right now and the SEC is a tough conference," he said. "The weekend of my visit is when they play Florida, so that'll be really exciting."
He reports a 3.0 core GPA and a 900 SAT.
