There appears to be only one prospect left on the board for BC. Offensive lineman Sean Hickey is expected to decide between the Eagles, Illinois and Syracuse very shortly. If Hickey goes elsewhere, BC will have closed 2010 with a commitment from running back Tahj Kimble and might try to place safety target Rodman Noel in prep school. BC made a run at defensive end B.J. McBryde but lost out to UConn. Overall, it was a solid year for BC. The Eagles stocked up on linemen, landing six prospects - including four from the area.

The Tigers continue to wait it out for athlete Keenan Allen. Allen made a trip to California this weekend and is expected to announce on Signing Day between Cal, Clemson and Alabama. Clemson and South Carolina made one last push sending their staffs to see linebacker Justin Parker. Parker is expected to announce between the two schools on Wednesday afternoon. Word is that he is leaning towards the Tigers at this time. Clemson is still waiting on a decision from D.J. Howard, who is apparently down to the Tigers and Kentucky. The Tigers also got in the picture with UNC commit Darius Lipford. He's expected to announce on Signing Day.
Duke

Message Board
The Blue Devils finished strong with two pledges on the final weekend, both coming from visitors who were offered while on campus. Defensive tackles Steven Ingram and Will Bryant chose the Blue Devils following official visits this weekend. Duke did lose one pledge as well. Alex Hill made the shift from Duke to Illinois.
Florida State

Commit List

Offensive lineman Dan Foose made a slightly surprising choice committing to Illinois over Florida State. The Seminoles played host to three visitors this past weekend in Christian Green, Vincent Sanders and five-star Christian Jones - who was on an unofficial visit. Jones and Green appear to be headed to Tallahassee, while Ole Miss will still be tough to beat for Sanders.
Georgia Tech

Message Board
The Yellow Jackets received a commitment from visiting athlete Tony Zenon over the weekend. Georgia Tech attempted to make a late play for Vanderbilt commit Chris Boyd, but he has decided to stick with the Commodores. With the departure of Jonathan Dwyer, Paul Johnson filled up on tailbacks. Tech has commits from three RBs in the class, including two in-state prospects.
Maryland

Commit List

Message Board
Maryland continues to wait and see with wide receiver Brandon Coleman. He plans to announce on Signing Day between Rutgers and Maryland. Defensive lineman Roney Lozano could be announcing on Signing Day as well. Maryland continues to be in the picture for defensive back Tony Grimes, although there are rumors that he committed to Ole Miss.
Miami

Commit List
CaneSport.com
Message Board
The Hurricanes had a huge visit weekend to close out the year with the nation's No. 2 player, Seantrel Henderson, and another five star, Shon Coleman leading the way. Both Henderson and Coleman are considered longshots but Miami has a good chance at landing four-star J.R. Ferguson following a good official and have improved their chances with defensive tackle Jeffrey Whitaker who is down to the 'Canes and Auburn. California linebacker Josh Shirley also visited and has always been high on Miami, but will he come across the country?
North Carolina

Commit List

Message Board
It was a big week for the Tar Heels with five commitments. It started with defensive end Kareem Martin on Monday. The Tar Heels solidified the end position with a pledge from Tim Jackson on Friday. UNC also closed out the running back spot getting two prospects, Casey Turner and Giovanni Bernard. The Tar Heels also received a commitment from cornerback Tre Boston. The Tar Heels may have room for two more, one of which is possibly wide receiver Markeith Ambles. Ambles is rumored to be favoring UNC although he took a last-minute official to Tennessee this weekend. Meanwhile, Ethan Farmer is also expected to choose UNC soon.
North Carolina State

Commit List

Message Board
Running back Mustafa Greene's selection of the Wolfpack earlier this week helped solidify the tailback spot. Greene's pledge closes the book on State's 2010 class, a class that was a massive upgrade on both sides of the lines. The Wolfpack landed a combined 11 offensive and defensive line prospects, including five-star offensive tackle Robert Crisp. The Pack went far and wide this year recruiting Utah, Ohio, Georgia, South Carolina and New Jersey to fill their needs.
Virginia

Mike London's recruiting efforts are paying dividends with two more commitments in the past week, both coming from in-state prospects Jake McGee and Stephen Lawe. London also landed Louisville commit Mike Rocco on Sunday and is after JMU pledge Dejor Simmons as well. If offered, Simmons is expected to be a strong lean.
Virginia Tech

The Hokies quietly closed up the 2010 campaign. End Kareem Martin picked North Carolina and receiver James Louis cancelled an official to Tech. Virginia Tech did a particularly strong job in-state once again with 12 of Tech's 19 pledges coming from Virginia. The Hokies did a particularly strong job filling the offensive line with four commitments, including two impressive tackles in Laurence Gibson and Mark Shuman.
Wake Forest

Commit List

Message Board
It was a tough Friday for Wake Forest. Their chances with Jawan Jamison went up in smoke just after they had offered mid-week; Jamison committed to Rutgers. Then, defensive end Tim Jackson gave his commitment to North Carolina that day. The Demon Deacons still haven't filled the running back spot, and may they may hold off after passing on David Glasco. Wake did close out with a top target in offensive tackle Dylan Heartsill, who committed Sunday.
