Woodbridge (Va.) C.D. Hylton E.J. Levenberry Jr. is ready to make his decision and begin to recruit for his future team. After originally planning to wait until the U.S. Army All American Bowl, Levenberry Jr. has seen all he needs to see and will chose from three schools this afternoon at his school.
The nation's No. 15 player and No. 3 outside linebacker is down to Florida State, Michigan and Oklahoma and breaks down all three of them for Rivals.com heading into the announcement at 3PM EST.
"I feel now is the right time to decide, I've visited all three of my favorites many times and I have a great feel for all of them," he said. "I couldn't go wrong with any of them.

"With Florida State I like the players a lot, I have a great feel for them and I like the coaches of course. They talked to me individually and showed me the love and I really like the people around the program as well like the tutoring people and academic support group. I want to do Computer Forensics and FSU has a great Criminology program. It also helps that Eddie Goldman and Ronald Darby from my area are going there as well, it's always good to know kids from the region down there and have your boys around you.
"Michigan I like the coaches a lot, coach Hoke, coach Mattison, coach Smith and coach Montgomery are all truthful and they have been great throughout the process. They showed me a lot of love as well and there is a player I know who transferred from Michigan down here to Hampton and he told me to pick Michigan even though he ended up leaving the school. He said it was great and it's the right fit for me. That said a lot to me that a player who ended up leaving still loves the school. I am also friendly with Blake Countess up there, we used to be rivals in high school and he's a great player. I love the fans at Michigan as well, they are amazing.
"Oklahoma I've visited twice and had a great time each visit. Coach Venables isn't there any more and he was the one who showed me a lot of things about OU, but coach Kish has been great and coach Bob Stoops is a great guy and has the program going well. I really like the overall program at Oklahoma."
As of last Monday evening, Levenberry had still not made a decision amongst his favorites.
"I haven't decided, I plan to sleep on it, pray on it and make my decision during the day leading up to the decision," he said. "It will come down to getting a degree first, playing for a conference title and playing for a national title. All three schools can provide that so it's tough."
As a junior, Levenberry had 151 tackles, five sacks and three interceptions. He also broke up nine passes, forced 8 fumbles and took two of his three interceptions back for a touchdown.
