Greenwood is Eager to Learn

Jabari Greenwood

2015 Gonzaga (Washington D.C.) wide receiver Jabari Greenwood admits he still has a lot to learn about Virginia. The wide out was at the 7 on 7 tournament over the weekend, and talked to HooNation about future visits and his recruitment.

"I am really excited to be here. It is my first time being on campus so I am trying to see everything," said Jabari Greenwood at the Virginia 7-on-7 tournament this Saturday.

The Gonzaga wide receiver holds an offer from UVa, but admits he still has a lot to learn about the Cavaliers and their football program.

"I don't know much right now," he said. I only talked to the coach (Anthony Poindexter) one time, so right now I am just trying to soak in everything about UVa."

"I want to see how they play, and what they do as a program," he explained. "And of course how is it academically, because right now I am just clueless. "

The 6-foot-4, 195 pound wide out will get the chance to learn more as he plans to return to Charlottesville in the very near future.

"I think I am going to try to come back in July, because I like it so far."

The Cavaliers are not the only school interested in the Eagles star. Hometown school, Maryland has also extended an offer, while Greenwood says Rutgers, Penn State, Temple, Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh, USC and Notre Dame among others have remained in contact.

"I am looking to find good academics... I am looking at the program in general – the relationship between the coaches and the players."

Although unclear on all the schools he plans to visit this summer, Greenwood knows this summer he is looking to help Gonzaga improve from its 8-3 finish last season.

"This season I am just trying to get faster and stronger, and do the best I can do for my team."

With only two seniors graduating, Greenwood hopes this is they year Gonzaga can soar to a championship.

"Everything depends on us, and we have something to work for this year."

He has one last camp before summer training begins, the 7-on-7 tournament in Maryland.
