Deleon committed, but open

In Bamberg-Ehrhardt's (S.C.) 35-7 season-opening win over Orangeburg-Wilkinson on Friday night, senior David Deleon made an impact at both center and defensive tackle.
But according to Deleon, a three-star recruit and the No. 22 prospect in South Carolina, he won't be on offense in college.
"I'm a defensive tackle," he said.
The question is, at which school will he be playing it.
Deleon, who is 6-feet-1, 275 pounds, committed to Miami (Ohio) in July, but on Friday he said his recruitment isn't quite over.
"I'm still pretty open," Deleon said.
Besides Miami, who's still in the picture?
"Pittsburgh, Marshall and Illinois," Deleon said.
According to Deleon, he will take officials to all three, along with one to the school that holds his commitment. The dates for those trips have not yet been set.
Deleon said Pittsburgh and Illinois likely pose the biggest threats to Miami.
"They [both] say I still have a full ride if I want to come up there," he said.
Although Deleon is looking at other options, at this point Miami is still very much in it. Both the school and the program have impressed him thus far.
"What interested me most was the campus size," Deleon said. "I like a really big campus. And I met some of the players there and they treat you like family. "
