"I narrowed my list recently," said Havenstein. "I just wanted to be able to concentrate my efforts more on my season and just move forward with the recruiting process. I have a final five of Wisconsin, Maryland, Wake Forest, Penn State and Virginia in no particular order."
With official visits allowed starting with the first day of classes Havenstein has already been working on the first couple. "I have an official visit already set for Wisconsin on September 5th. I also was at Maryland for an unofficial recently and talked to Head Coach (Ralph) Friedgen about my official visit. It will be in December sometime. The rest will be set at a later date."
Havenstein, like many recruits, has been feeling the pressure of such an important decision and the schools and coaching staffs that are affected during this process. Still he will not make a decision until he feels completely comfortable.
"Some schools have said they would like me to decide sooner rather than later. I can appreciate where they are coming from but I will know when it is the right time. I won't make a decision before then. It doesn't matter about the stadium or the size of the school or things like that. It is about what is best for me. I want to make sure it is the right fit."
