Spearman Set to Decide

Simeon High LB Reggie Spearman plans to announce his college decision Tuesday afternoon.

Listed as a "soft verbal" to Illinois for months, Simeon (Chicago) High linebacker Reggie Spearman plans to make a firm announcement regarding his college destination Tuesday.

A 6-2, 200-pound three-star prospect, Spearman verbally committed to the Illini in early August. However, he never closed the door on his recruitment, continuing to entertain offers from various schools and taking visits to numerous campuses.

He officially visited Iowa in November, Minnesota in January and travelled to Syracuse last weekend. He also remained in contact with Indiana and Purdue, among others.

Spearman is said to be choosing between Illinois, Iowa and Syracuse during an announcement at Simeon today at 5 p.m.

College prospects in the 2013 class can officially sign and send in letters-of-intent beginning Wednesday, Feb. 6.
