When we caught up with the Zellner's late Wednesday evening, Chris was fast asleep after his long road trip so we spoke with his father to get the latest on the Sunshine state standout.

"Both visits were good," said Mr. Zellner. "He has one more visit to make. He want even tell us who he likes until he take his visit to Miami. Hopefully after that he will tell us."

When asked which visit he like the best, he responded, "To tell you the truth we liked both of them. The only thing it may come down to is the distance. We haven't missed a game of his since he was 9 years old. Even when he was a water boy."

Wouldn't distance give an edge to Miami?

"They weren't in the running until the end," added Mr. Zellner. "I have never met any of their coaches until I happened to bump into one at the school today."

The Tigers and Buckeyes appear to be the favorites at this point. "If I had to guess it's between Clemson and Ohio State," stated his father.

The Clemson coaching staff will make their presence known to the Zellner's over the course of the next week. "Coach Scott is coming in for a visit tomorrow night. Coach Bowden is coming next week. I believe all three head coaches are coming next week. Maybe that will be enough to get a decision."

We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding athlete from Florida, right up through signing day 2004.
