One school, five new commits

Probably the biggest news from Coffeyville, according to secondary coach James Spurlock, is that three-star defensive end Wali Muhammad (6-foot-1, 235-pounds, 4.5) has made his decision to commit to Nebraska.
“He had an in-home last week with coach (Frank) Solich and he was on the verge of committing then,” Spurlock said.
“Then I know that he visited up there and came back and said he’s committed. He’s back in New Jersey now, so I don’t know if he’s changed his mind or anything but as far as we’re concerned he’s going to Nebraska and should sign tomorrow.”
But Muhammad is just one of the many that are set to ink tomorrow.
Spurlock confirmed that previously committed players Damien Nash (Missouri), Brandon Jacobs (Auburn), Tony McClain (Auburn), John Poe (Tennessee), Shermar Bracey (Arkansas), Darrell Shropshire (South Carolina) are all still committed to the same schools.
Other big news is that a former Kentucky commitment is now a Baylor pledge – strongside defensive end Montez Murphy has switched from the Wildcats to the Bears with Guy Morriss moving to Waco.
“He was committed to the coaches and that’s what caused him to change to Baylor,” Spurlock said.
As far as he knew, Spurlock said safety Frank Johnson is going to sign with East Carolina, despite the Pirates not having a head coach at this point.
Spurlock also said that three-star receiver Ray Hicks is set to sign and is committed to Utah State. Coffeyville corner Larry Bradford is also going to sign with TCU on Wednesday.
