In the eyes of Darius Commissiong, his body of work at the U.S. Army All-American Combine could have been better. The 6-foot-2, 285-pound defensive tackle from Forestville (Md.) Bishop McNamara harbors some reservations about his performance.
"I feel like I did well but I could have done better," he said. "In hindsight, I could have done better in a few things but overall I was pretty happy about it."
Commissiong currently has offers from East Carolina, Maryland, Syracuse and Virginia, and is attracting attention from some heavy hitters.

"I'd consider going to any of the schools that have offered me," explained Commissiong. "It's an opportunity to get an education and develop mentally and physically. My dream is to play in the NFL so I feel like if I have the chance to perform I can make it from anywhere. I'm also being recruited by Boston College, Baylor, Alabama, Oregon, North Carolina and NC State."
Commissiong, who carries a 3.2 GPA, was hesitant to name his top schools but did mention that a few schools are paying more attention to him than others.
"Boston College, Alabama and Oregon are recruiting me harder than some of the other schools," he said. "I like the consistency and great coaching from those schools. Every year they produce a well-oiled machine that can compete with anyone. Whatever school shows me the most love, that's probably where I'm going to end up"
For Commissiong, the off-season will be busy with camps, combines and visits.
"The only other combine I'm going to is one of the Nike SPARQ Combines," said Commissiong. "Some of my teammates and I are going to the Tennessee spring game. I'm probably going to visit Syracuse and Virginia in the summer before the season starts."
