With four of his five official visits already completed, four-star tight end Jack Tabb of Red Bank (N.J.) Catholic, may be a few days away from putting an end to his recruiting process. However, a late push by a new program, which may offer this week, could extend his process into January.
Tabb has already taken four official visits, but it's the attention he has recently received from a new program that currently has his attention.
"I might take a visit to Miami, if they end up offering," said Tabb. "If not, I was actually hoping to commit this week before the holiday."

Coach Al Golden stopped by Red Bank Catholic last week to check on Tabb.
"It went very well," said Tabb. "I really like him a lot. He actually went to my high school, so I've heard a lot of great things about him. It was great to finally meet him. He said that he is in the process of going through his recruiting board and will get back to me."
If Miami does not come through with an offer this week, Tabb is likely down to his final five.
"It'll be between Michigan, North Carolina, Iowa, Arkansas and Rutgers, if Miami isn't involved," said Tabb, who gave his thoughts on Rutgers, considering he has not planned an official visit there. "I've been up there multiple times and I know what it's about, so I'll go on the official if I do commit."
With the four schools that he has already taken a visit to, he gave his thoughts on why they have made his final cut.
Michigan: "I really like the coaches, but I really like the prestige of the schools. It's an awesome university and has awesome football."
North Carolina: "I also really like the coaching staff. It's an awesome area with up and coming football and a great broadcasting program, which is what I want to major in."
Iowa: "I like Iowa because it is a hard-nosed program with an awesome coach. They just get the job done."
Arkansas: "I really like how the tight end is used. DJ Williams won the Mackey Award, so they are doing something right."
If Miami does not offer Tabb by mid-week, look for a commitment from the four-star prospect by Friday.
