SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS — Binjimen Victor’s recruitment has largely been overshadowed by the notion that Florida and Ohio State are competing head-to-head for his signature.
But the four-star wide receiver from Coconut Creek, Fla., wants to dispel that belief.
“People think it’s between those two, but there is more to it than those two schools,” Victor told SEC Country. “There are more programs that I’m interested in that would fit my playing style.”
Per Victor, West Virginia, a program he officially visited in September, and Tennessee, whom he’ll visit in January, are both in the fold to land his verbal commitment. He told SEC Country his decision will likely come down to those four programs, with an announcement set to come before National Signing Day.
Victor originally pegged Florida his leader over the summer, prior to taking a few unofficial visits.
“I’ll most likely commit in mid-January,” Victor said. “I don’t plan on committing on Signing Day, so I’ll take these last two officials and take my time to make my decision. I just want to see what’s different between all four — the first two visits and these two.”
Victor is scheduled to officially visit both Florida and Tennessee in the coming weeks, though he did not confirm dates. He took official visits to West Virginia (Sept. 25) and Ohio State (Oct. 17).
Back in October, the 6-foot-4 senior told SEC Country he would consider the possibility of redshirting if need be, but he says that is no longer the case. He anticipates playing as a true freshman, and feels he can do so at each of the aforementioned programs.
Victor is rated as the No. 8 wide receiver in the country and the No. 14 prospect overall in Florida.
