Azubike ready to pull trigger

Although he confirmed he will make his college destination known this Friday, three-star defensive end Caleb Azubike of Nashville McGavock said he still hasn't determined which program will get his commitment.
"I really don't know yet," he told Rivals.com.
The candidates are: Boston College, Mississippi State and Vanderbilt. On Sunday, Azubike provided a brief comment about each.
Boston College: "I haven't visited there but I've talked to the coaches and the way I connect with them is great. I like the way they talk to me. I have a great relationship with them. They've talked to me about the possibility of playing as a freshman. There's a really high chance of me playing. I know they have a great campus and a good winning tradition."
Mississippi State: "They have great coaches. I connect really good with all the coaches I've talked to. They've talked about me playing as a freshman, and if I work hard enough possibly even start a few games. I love the campus and the facilities. It's a great program. They're on the rise down there."
Vanderbilt: "They've got great coaches over there. I think I'd be playing early. I love the fact I could contribute as a freshman. I also love the atmosphere and the way they're doing things down there. They're on the rise, like Mississippi State. And it's an Ivy League education."
Azubike, who carries a 3.3 GPA, said he is comfortable with his finalists. He had planned an upcoming trip to Virginia Tech, but now that visit seems unlikely.
"My top three are great schools," Azubike said. "I'm just looking to make a decision and get it over with."
