Jersey duo set to decide

After reeling in two major targets yesterday, South Carolina may get even more good news today as two more top targets are set to announce their future intentions.

St. Peter's Prep (Jersey City, N.J.) safety Sheldon Royster and Bergen Catholic (Oradell, N.J.) QB Tanner McEvoy are each down to a final two schools and will announce their attentions later today. Royster will commit to either South Carolina or Rutgers while McEvoy is down to South Carolina and North Carolina.

Rather than having ceremonies at their schools as have become commonplace in recruiting today, both prospects have decided to go more low key.

McEvoy's decision should come first as he will announce his commitment after finishing up his exams, which should come somewhere in the neighborhood of 6 p.m.

Royster will announce his intentions from the comfort of his own home and that should happen around 9 p.m.

The 5-11, 190-pound Royster recently received a big bump up in the Scout ratings and is now ranked the No. 7 safety in the country and is a four-star prospect.

The 6-5, 210-pound McEvoy is rated as a three-star wide receiver on Scout but has been pegged as a quarterback by USC QB coach G.A. Mangus since he started recruiting him. The Gamecocks were the first major program to offer McEvoy has a quarterback and he has multiple family ties to the area.

Mangus has already landed four-star speedster WR Damiere Byrd from the state and with the addition of Royster and McEvoy would have three of the top prospect from the Garden State's class of 2011.
