Despite a winless 2013 campaign, Cottondale (Ala.) Paul Bryant features some athletes and college prospects on the roster.
Leading the way is senior quarterback and defensive back Patrick Porter, who is projected to play on the defensive side of the football at the next level. After a full season of recruiting, the 5-foot-11, 169-pounder is ready to end the process.
"I will announce my college decision Friday, January 10 at 10:00 a.m. (CST) at the Paul W. Bryant High School library," he said Monday.
Three schools -- Minnesota, Washington State and Miami (Fla.) -- remain among his list of double-digit scholarship offers.
"They have all been recruiting me the hardest from the start," Porter said. "That's why there are my top three."
The Scout.com two-star prospect expanded on each school still in the running:
Washington State: "Washington State is graduating six DBs, so I feel like I got a good chance of going in and battling for a spot."
Minnesota: "Minnesota is looking to sign three DBs in my class and they said I'm one of the guys they would like to get. My position coach, Coach [Jay] Sawvel, recruits me hard, we talk just about every day. They have a great coaching staff up there."
Miami: "Miami runs the same defense as I do at school, so I would already know what to do if I decided to go. It would put me ahead of the other guys."
Porter invites all media to attend the press conference next month.
