Marvin Austin still undecided?

Standout defensive tackle has yet to make a choice but has some nice things to say about Florida State.

Five-star defensive tackle Marvin Austin has just about everyone guessing.

With his final choices narrowed down to three lucky schools, speculation has run rampant for a few weeks about which one he will eventually sign with Wednesday at the ESPNZone in Washington D.C.

Will he shock the recruiting world and leave the east coast to sign with Southern Cal? Will he commit to wild card North Carolina? Or will he do what many have expected him to do and sign with the rumored leader all along in Florida State?

At this point in time, it's anybody's guess.

If Austin has in fact already privately made a decision, he's not letting anyone know for sure.

"I don't know who it's going to be, honestly," he told Renegade Report Monday. "I keep telling everyone that I haven't made a decision but there are rumors about each school. Each place has it's own good things about it."

So, what are those "good things"?

"USC has been a dynasty. They are winners and have good players," Austin said. "UNC is a rising team and Coach (Butch) Davis is a good coach. FSU, it's a great program and they have been good for a long time.

In addition to Austin's feelings towards FSU's history of success, his feelings toward the man who would be his position coach at FSU, Odell Haggins, has been well documented.

"He is a coach that I would like to play for," Austin said. "I could play for him. I like the way he coaches and the way the defense plays. They are real aggressive."

So will the nation's No. 1-ranked defensive tackle join that defensive unit in Tallahassee?

Wednesday at noon, that question won't warrant a guess any longer.
