TOP FIVE:#UofL#VT#WSU#USC#OKSTATE ?? #Jan2— Tim Settle (@tim_settle) December 15, 2014
Settle, out of Stonewall Jackson High in Manassas, Va., checks in at a robust 6-2, 339-pounds. He is rated the No. 65 prospect nationally overall regardless of position and the No. 2 DT prospect in the East. He had earlier tweeted he was down to four, with the change this evening being that Louisville has been added to the mix.
Settle officially visited WSU earlier this month and has taken all five of his official trips. His offer list this recruiting cycle numbers 30-plus and includes Alabama, LSU, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Texas and others.
Settle has (naturally) run roughshod over the prep competition given his size but it’s his quickness and athleticism that have made him a sought national recruit.
The UA game played on Jan. 2 in St. Petersburg, Fla. at 1 p.m. PT, will be carried on ESPN.
