National Signing Day is supposed to be an exciting culmination of months of high school football recruiting, but several blue-chip talents are in no hurry to make up their minds.
- Jeannette, Pa. quarterback Terrelle Pryor from the Pittsburgh area is one of the best high school quarterbacks in a long time and will likely be starting somewhere this fall. But while many expected him to pick between Michigan and Ohio State today, he will announce on ESPNU that he is not ready to sign. Apparently Penn State is making a giant push for his services, and Pryor is going to take another visit before making up his mind.
- The Post’s Jason Lieser reports that Pahokee receiver Martavious Odoms, Scout’s No. 49 ranked receiver in the country, won’t be signing today. Odoms, who had 732 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns for state champion Pahokee this year, is still decided between Miami, South Florida, West Virginia and Michigan.
- Pompano Beach-Ely cornerback Patrick Johnson, the top-ranked defensive back in the country by many recruiting services and a top 5 player overall, could be having second thoughts about his commitment to LSU. According to the Miami Herald, Ely High has changed its Signing Day ceremony from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. He could be re-considering his choice of LSU over Florida and Florida State.
