Virginia Beach (Va.) Bayside has a trio of talent in 2010. Leading the way for Darnell Moore's team is linebacker Henry Coley.
"Everything is going good," Coley said. "I've already visited Duke and Maryland. If you get a degree from Duke, you can almost go anywhere. Maryland was great. It's a little more laid back. I like both of the schools."
Other schools including Virginia and Virginia Tech are also looking at the talented linebacker.

What does he want in a school?
"I want a good education and a school with a family atmosphere," he said. "I don't want to get lied to. I'm looking at tradition too. As far as education, I'm thinking about accounting."
Coley posted 93 tackles, 19 for loss and nine sacks on his way to all-district both ways, all-region and all-Tidewater honors. Moore went on about Coley's ability.
"Henry's a good student, a 3.0 GPA and a good athlete that can also throw a shot putt 43 feet," he stated. "He's the leader of our defense and has been since his sophomore year. He is a ball player and makes plays. He's always around the ball and you don't often catch him out of position. He's a heady ballplayer too."
Coley isn't the only prospect to watch at Bayside. He is joined by 6-foot-1, 237-pound linebacker Jeremy Majette.
"Jeremy is another kid that started for me as a freshman," he said. "He's one of the most aggressive kids I've had. He has played standup defensive end and is outstanding there. He runs fairly well and catches the ball well out of the backfield. He's a good kid too, he's a yes sir, no sir type of kid."
Majette is already receiving interest from a few schools including Maryland, NC State, Virginia and Virginia Tech.
Rounding out the group of talent at Bayside in 2010 is 5-foot-8, 190-pound running back Lamar Jordan.
"He started to come on this season and ran for 275-yards against Landstown," he said. "His grades are fairly good, he's a hard worker and he's tough."
Meanwhile, Bayside has another prospect to monitor in 2011, 5-foot-10, 160-pound cornerback Demetrious Nicholson.
"He's a lockdown corner," he said. "He excels in man coverage and is quick and smart. He's still growing and is going to be one of the top defensive backs around here. He's a kid that never says a word, but goes out and makes plays. He's a good student with a 3.6 GPA.
"He's already receiving letters from a few schools."
