Lithuanian native Deividas Dulkys, who is now at Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep, is feeling his way around the recruiting process. After a couple official visits, with his latest being to Florida State, might just be on the verge of committing.
"The visit was pretty nice," said Dulkys, a 6-foot-3, 187-pound shooting guard. "I liked what I saw. The first day was centered around academics and I met the president. Then I saw the facilities and went to the football game. I also was able to watch the team workout. Overall it was a lot of fun."
Dulkys also has visited San Diego State, but the lure of playing in a major power conference holds a big sway over Dulkys.
"Since I lived in Virginia when I first came to America, playing in the ACC has always been a dream," he said. "I don't know if I definitely want to play in the ACC now. I do love to compete. I love competition and that is what has gotten me where I am. I'd love to play at the highest level in college and against the best competition."
Illinois is also making a push to get Dulkys on campus for a visit.
"I don't know what I'm going t do," he said. "They are giving me a couple days to think it over. I'm seriously considering committing to Florida State, but I might want to wait till the spring and see how things develop."
Dulkys is the No. 67 ranked prospect in the Rivals150.
