Eastern Christian Academy (Elkton, Md.) running back Wendell Smallwood recently trimmed his list to Rutgers and West Virginia, and now he is ready to decide.

Smallwood told FOXSportsNEXT he will make his decision known Wednesday.

"I will make a decision tomorrow ...around 2:30 p.m.," the 5-foot-11, 200-pound Smallwood said late Tuesday night. "(It will be) just a gathering of my teammates."

There was a minor stir created when Smallwood's teammate, USC commit Khaliel Rodgers, tweeted that Smallwood committed to West Virginia, but Smallwood said it was just a prank.

"He was playing around," Smallwood said.

Smallwood's teammate, receiver Daikiel Shorts, committed to West Virginia last week, a day after he and Smallwood made unofficial visits to Morgantown, W.V.

Smallwood has not had an in-depth visit to Rutgers.
