At the end of September, Baltimore (Md.) Dunbar all-purpose back Tavon Austin announced that he was on the verge of narrowing his list to five.
The 5-foot-9, 156-pound four-star prospect has stayed quiet for the most part since then. Now, however, he has trimmed his list to three and may be nearing a decision.
"I haven't taken any official visits lately," Austin explained. "I went to West Virginia a little while back and that went pretty good. I'm not going to take all five of them.
"I'm taking an official to UNC on November 7, and I think I might make my decision after that. I'm looking at West Virginia, North Carolina and Michigan right now, but I might not make it to Michigan. I'd say West Virginia is leading by a little bit."
Austin, currently ranked the No. 13 all-purpose back in the nation by Rivals.com, knows what he will be looking for when the time comes to make his decision.
"I'm just looking for a place where I feel comfortable," he said. "I want to end up at the position I really want to play, that's all. I'm not really worried about distance or anything like that too much."
