Five-star wide receiver Terrance Toliver just wasn't ready to decide this past weekend. On top of that, rumors were started that a third school could be making a late move with the Rivals100 member.
Toliver, the 6-foot-4, 185-pounder, previously narrowed the field to LSU and Florida. Rumors started to swirl that new Alabama head coach Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide were coming on strong late in the process. The nation's No. 4 rated wide receiver says that he received a phone call, but it looks like it's too late for any other school to jump in the mix.
"Yeah, I got a call from a coach at Alabama, but I didn't answer my phone," Toliver said. "I know it was a coach from Alabama but I don't remember his name. I didn't call back or anything.

"Basically, I'm really down to two schools and I'm ready to be done."
Toliver looked to be tossing around the idea of announcing at the U.S. Army All-American game this past weekend in San Antonio, Texas. However, after talking with his coach right before the game, he decided to just wait until Signing Day.
The Hempstead, Texas native is sticking to that date for the most part as to when he'll announce a school of his choice.
"If I did decide before Signing Day, it would only be within a few days of it," Toliver said. "It's dead even right now. Those are both good schools, so it's a tough decision."
Of course, Toliver had his eyes glued to the television watching both LSU and Florida defeat their opponents in convincing fashion during the bowl season.
"I watched Florida last night and they played really well," Toliver said. "I knew they were going to win. I knew there was just too much speed in the SEC.
"It was the same thing with LSU. I had to watch that one too. It's the SEC again, same thing – they just had too much speed."
