Mattes continues to rack up mileage

Concord (N.C.) Robinson offensive tackle R.J. Mattes (6-foot-7, 283 pounds, 5.1 seconds) has an advantage over many recruits in the 2008 class; his five finalists are all located within driving distance to his home.

Mattes has seen each of his favorites at least once this year and has taken in football games at each of their home stadiums, except for UVa.

When will Mattes visit Virginia?

"I am definitely going to be going up to Charlottesville for their game against Virginia Tech," said Mattes. "At this point, I am not sure if that will be my official visit to Virginia or not. I am going to say that it probably won't and that I will take my official visit later."

While Mattes hasn't visited UVa for a game this year, he did participate in a one-day lineman camp this summer. He also saw the Cavaliers in action when he visited North Carolina on an unofficial visit.

He will see them in action again this weekend.
