Wednesday Decision For LB

<B>Robert Killebrew</B> is the #6 rated LB (4 stars) in the nation and he tripped to the University of Florida last weekend. Killebrew will make his decision on Wednesday and Florida is one of his four finalists. What did he think of UF and how do the Gators stack up?

One of the nation's best will make his decision on Wednesday. Robert Killebrew, a high four-star linebacker (#6 overall), will make his college decision between Oklahoma, Texas, UCLA and Florida. Killebrew took his last official visit to Florida this weekend.

"I had a real good time," said Killebrew. "They treated me so well. Gainesville is a nice town and I felt very comfortable there. I think I can get early playing time at Florida but that is all on me. Florida is Florida... one of the premier programs in the country. What else can I say?"

Where will he end up? That's a close call. Killebrew is from Los Angeles and he spent half of his life in L.A. and he still has a lot of family in California. Unfortunately for Killebrew, he visited the Bruins for his official trip before the coaching change.

"I haven't met the new staff but them seem cool."

Then you have the two Big 12 powers - Texas and Oklahoma. Killebrew, from Klein, Texas, has already tripped to Norman and Austin. "Oklahoma has perhaps the best coaching staff in the nation and Austin is awesome and pretty close to home. Right now, I still have not made up mind. I guess you could say that I am open."

So there you have it... Texas, Florida, Oklahoma and UCLA are the finalists for one of the nation's top linebackers. Stay tuned as decision day is Wednesday.
