According to reliable sources in Union, Eric Young is getting closer to making a decision, and at this point in the game, it appears as though South Carolina and the North Carolina Tar Heels have the edge headed into signing day.
While the recruiting saga for one of the top prospects in the country continues, it appears as though anything could happen at this point in game. Just one week ago, Young was firm in his commitment to Tennessee and North Carolina really wasn't even a consideration.
But after a visit to Chapel Hill last weekend, things might have begun to change drastically.
"The faciliites at North Carolina simply blew Eric away, he said it was the most gorgeous thing he's ever seen," the source said earlier this morning.
Young's sitation has obviously changed more in the last month than any other prospect in recent memory, so it goes without saying that he could announce something completely unexpected tomorrow at his press conference, but today he seems set on either playing football in Columbia or Chapel Hill.
All hope is not lost however because it appears as though one other in-state prospect could in fact be in a position to "shock the world" in a different way.
Yes, we are talking about Lexington running back Demetris Summers, who may have played everyone throughout the entire recruiting process this year.
Sources say that certain members of the South Carolina coaching staff feel as though Summers will be playing his collegiate football at Clemson next season.
Summers has already taped two endings to his highlight show due to air tomorrow night in Columbia. In one ending, he chooses South Carolina. In the other, he chooses Clemson. It will not be known until that time which school the nation's top running back will attend.
Stay tuned, tomorrow promises to be one of the most exciting signing days ever!
Young Down to Two?
