Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Dillard safety Wayne Lyons will have three hats sitting in front of him when he announces his college decision on Saturday afternoon at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

Which hats will those be?

"Stanford, UCLA and Michigan," said Lyons.

Lyons talked about his three finalists.

Michigan: "It's a great program, a great academic background. Michigan has a great engineering program. I went there on a visit. I really hit it off with the players, like I was family. I'm watching the coaching thing closely to see who they hire."

Stanford: "Coach Harbaugh has been pretty busy this week, so I haven't talked to him. Coach Fangio is a great coach. He's like the mastermind. He's a great coach and he knows what he's doing."

UCLA: "Coach (Clark) Lea is the one recruiting me for UCLA. My trip there was cool. The tour was really good. I got to see all the latest technology, like with what doctor's do, putting microscopes on cameras. It was great."

Lyons declined to say who was in the lead for him.

"There is a school I feel more of a pull too, but I will make my decision on Saturday," said Lyons.

Lyons is ready to end things with his recruitment.

"I'm looking forward to it and ready to get it over with," said Lyons.

Brandon is in his sixth year with, currently as the West Regional Manager. Prior to joining Scout, he spent three years as an o-line and tight ends coach in the high school ranks.
