By now most of the of the recruiting world knows that Rivals100 defensive end Clelin Ferrell will be committing Wednesday afternoon. The Richmond (Va.) Benedictine School star will be picking from Clemson, LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia Tech.
All of these schools have a lot of things Ferrell likes but he will be committing to one of them Wednesday afternoon at his school.
Clemson: "I really liked everything at Clemson," said the 6-foot-5, 220-pound Ferrell. "Their academics are good and they have the major I want. The campus life and the fan base was great. I really like coach Swinney, coach Venables and coach Hobby. They're great guys. I like how it is more important for them to make a better man out of me instead of just a player."
LSU: "LSU was my dream school growing up," he said. "Some of my favorite players went there like Barkevious Mingo, Sam Montgomery, Tyrann Mathieu and Ego Ferguson who just went to the draft. I really like coach Haley and he seems like a good guy. He's not the loudest guy but he was very up front with me. I talked to coach Miles on the phone and he's a funny guy. He knows a lot about Richmond and he could help me fit in at LSU."
Michigan: "I really like the coaching staff," Ferrell said. "Coach Manning is a great guy. He kept it real with me since the beginning. I really like coach Mattison. He's also a great guy and told how well I would fit into their system. I really like their history and the networking connections they have for you after college."
Michigan State: "Coach Burton is a Richmond guy," he said. "I really like him. He is a high energy guy but humble at the same time. Coach Narduzzi and coach Dantonio are also very humble guys but they get their message across. The players are very disciplined and very have high character. The campus life is really good. Every school says they're building new facilities but Michigan State's new facilities are already built so they have some of the nicest facilities that I've seen."
South Carolina: "South Carolina is a great school," said Ferrell. "I really like the campus. It's kind of a city campus. Of course they have a good defensive lineman tradition with Clowney. Coach Adams is a good guy and was always up front with me so I liked that. The people at South Carolina were very good to me. They were talking to me about campus life more than football so that was good."
Tennessee: "Tennessee is a SEC school and they're on the rise," he said. "They're only getting better. I really like the sports nutrition program they have there. I really like coach Stripling and he is a very good guy. They have a great fan base, a lot of energy and a great college town."
Virginia Tech: "Virginia Tech is a place you go and you already feel like you already fit in," Ferrell said. "You know everybody there because they're recruiting everybody in the state. Coach Shane and coach Wiles are good guys. It's a technical school so you can get a good education there. Two players there went to my school so I really like that too."
Ferrell made the rounds to a number of schools over the past few months to make sure he did all the research he needed to.
"I've been to Virginia, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Maryland, South Carolina, Clemson, Michigan and Michigan State," he said. "One of the craziest things I saw was when I went to Michigan. I had a meeting with coach Mattison and on the TV screen he had cover a magazine up there with me in a Michigan uniform. Then we watch some film of me doing a play then Terrell Suggs doing the exact same play. He would compare me to him so that was pretty cool."
On Wednesday, everyone will find out what Ferrell says he has known for a while.
"I've known where I was going to school for the last two months," said Ferrell. "I was just waiting to see if any school was going to change my mind about that. I'm not the type of guy that would wait until National Signing Day. I told everyone that I would make my decision when I was ready to do it."
Ferrell will be playing in the 2015 Under Armour All-America Game.
