Proctor: Best Visit So Far

Proctor: Best Visit So Far

A week after receiving his offer, R.J. Proctor visited Virginia on Saturday. The Bealeton (Va.) Liberty offensive tackle caught up with HooNation.com after the visit he called ‘the best so far'.

A week after receiving an offer from Virginia, R.J. Proctor made the trek down to Charlottesville to visit the Wahoos.

"It was the best visit I've been to so far," said the Bealteon (Va.) Liberty offensive tackle.

"Coach (Scott) Wach(enheim) showed us around the campus-it was a very nice campus," explained Proctor. "We got to talk to the head coach, Mike London, for about an hour and a half. Steve Fairchild was there; we watched a lot of videos. We saw every single thing. We saw the practice fields, the home fields; we got to take some pictures. It was a cool visit."

Proctor still remembers when Mike London performed the NaeNae after spring practice, but on this visit, the standout had the chance to learn more about the Cavalier head coach.

"Just everything; everything about life. We talked more about life than football. Basically my parents, me and him bonded together. He just told us where he was at in life, where we were at in life. It was pretty cool."

Proctor is becoming a seasoned veteran on Grounds. This Saturday was the lineman's third trip to campus this year, but every time the 2015 prospect takes in another side to the university.

"Every time I learn something new. This time I learned more about the academics. I talked to the academic advisor and we sat there for an hour talking about different academics, different classes, history, everything. I learned a lot of history about the school too, which was good."

Proctor also learned about Virginia's lineman tradition.

"I learned more about Moses that went there-the Morgan Moses who just went to the (Washington) Redskins," he said. "I didn't know all those lineman went to the NFL. That is crazy."

With the Virginia offensive line coach giving Proctor the tour, the standout was able to get a lot of personalized time with Wachenheim.

"He told us that confidence is key and he sees that in me. He thinks I can help UVa a lot. He says he doesn't care who you are, he is going to put the best team out there. No matter if you are freshman, sophomore, junior, he is going to put the best out there."

Proctor plans to camp at Maryland on the 22nd this month, and he might try to camp at Virginia Tech in July. As far as making a decision, Proctor is still trying to figure out a timeline.

"My parents really liked coach London. We have been talking about it all weekend, talking about when to make a decision. This is a very big decision."
