Palm Beach Gardens linebacker Tevon Coney is giving another school a shot.
Along with Notre Dame and Florida, Coney added Miami to his list of favorite schools. Coney (6-2, 220) said he hopes to verbally commit to a school in September.
“They’re all equal right now,” Coney said of the three schools.
One of the reasons Coney decided to include Miami on his list is the opportunity to play right away. The top rated player on the PBgametime Class of 2015 Big Board said he will visit Miami’s campus next week.
“I think I can play early down there and get a great [More]

Glades Central offensive tackle Jah’Shaun Seider didn’t have to think about it for too long.

Jarius Adams wanted to commit to a school before the start of his senior season, so he set up a road trip to visit schools like Georgia Tech, Middle Tennessee State, Rutgers and Bowling Green in June.
After returning to Palm Beach County, the 2015 Dwyer cornerback (see his Hudl tape here) narrowed his list to Rutgers and Bowling Green. On Friday, Adams (5-foot-11, 175 pounds) made his decision and verbally committed to Rutgers.

Just nine days before Kevin Bronson planned to report to Virginia Tech, he was forced to change his plans.
Hokies coaches informed the former Village Academy defensive end that he did not qualify due to his test scores this past Friday. Although Bronson knew his test scores were not up to the university’s standards, he was made to believe it wouldn’t be an issue.
“Virginia Tech did make it known that there was a possibility head coach Frank Beamer would have to go in front of a committee to speak on behalf of Kevin,” Village Academy coach Don Hanna said. “But not [More]

Although Tevon Coney narrowed his list to 10 schools in June, two programs stand alone in his eyes.
“I’m still pretty open to all of the schools in my top 10, but I like Florida and Notre Dame the most,” Coney said.
The four-star Palm Beach Gardens linebacker was blown away on his unofficial visit to Notre Dame on June 19. The Fighting Irish were not among Coney’s favorites before the trip, but that quickly changed.
