If you're looking for a commitment any time soon from Columbus (Ohio) Eastmoor star running back Isaiah Pead, don't hold your breath.
The 5-foot-10, 184-pounder still continues to get plenty of attention from schools coast-to-coast, and that means he's got a really tough decision ahead.
And it's one that won't come for quite some time.

"It probably won't be until signing day," Pead, who is ranked as the nation's No. 27 running back, said. "I plan on setting up visits soon. I don't know who to yet. I've got a couple in mind, but I've got to talk to my coach."
Where those visits will be is tough to figure out, Pead said. He's got a slew of scholarship offers from teams like Cincinnati, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Marshall. And always lurking in the background for him is Ohio State, the lone school on his top team list that hasn't offered.
"Actually we just talked on Saturday," Pead said. "I was there for the game. They told me to keep in touch. They are waiting to see what I get on my SAT. Last week I also talked to Maryland, Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and West Virginia."
Pead definitely did some damage on the 2007 season. He broke several records and was one of the most dominating offensive players in Ohio this season.
"I'm now the all time leading rusher at my school," he said. "I broke the touchdown record with 39 touchdowns this season. I had 2,204 yards and averaged 11.6 yards a carry.
"Our season actually ended early. We were 9-1 but somehow we didn't make the playoffs. We won last Friday and we were all happy and celebrating. Then come Saturday morning we found out we weren't in the playoffs."
While the season did end early, don't expect Pead's decision to come early.
