The Penn State game was great, Still said. Ohio State struggled in their bowl game loss, but that is not a big factor in my decision.
Still has been in contact with both schools, Ohio State more than Penn State recently.
I have been communicating through text messages with both coaching staffs, Still said. The last I was text messaging with Penn State was around New Year's and I have text messaged with Ohio State a few times since their bowl game.
Still has set up in-home visits with coaches from both schools for next week.
Coach (Joe) Paterno is visiting my home next Tuesday and Coach (Darrell) Hazell from Ohio State is visiting sometime next week, I am not sure the day yet, Still said. Buckeyes head coach Jim Tressel has already visited Still, which is the reason Hazell is making the visit next week.
Neither team will have to wait long after their respective visits for a decision from Still.
I am hoping to make my decision by next Friday (Jan. 19), Still said. I am not sure if I will have a press conference or just inform the coaching staffs.
Look for more on Still and his potential commitment next week. Still claims that both teams are even in the running for his services so it appears to be anyone's ball game.
