DeBerry Down to 20

The five-star linebacker from Richmond (Va.) St. Christopher's, Ricky DeBerry, narrowed his list down to 20 schools...

After receiving around 60 scholarship offers, Ricky DeBerry narrowed his list to 20 schools on Monday.

"My top schools are Alabama, Arizona State, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, LSU, Miami, Michigan State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Texas A&M, South Carolina, North Carolina, USC, UCLA, Virginia and Virginia Tech," DeBerry tweeted.

Why did those schools make the cut?

"These are the 20 schools I know I have a general interest in and would like to do more research on," said the 6-foot-2, 240-pound DeBerry. "Right now, all 20 are even."

According to the St. Christopher's star, it was not easy.

"It was hard, but I had to at some point," he said. "I'll probably cut it down again sometime during the summer."

DeBerry is the No. 3 outside linebacker and the 25th-ranked player overall in the 2015 class.
