Three-star athlete E.J. Banks has narrowed his list to two schools. The 5-foot-11, 181-pounder out of McKees Rocks (Pa.) Montour is now considering a decision in the near future.
"I haven't gone anywhere this summer," he said. "I was going to go to Rutgers, but didn't make it.
"I have narrowed it down to two schools. They are Ohio State and Notre Dame. I plan to commit before the season, sometime by the end of the month. Our first game is on August 29th. It probably could be sooner than later."
Banks discussed the Fighting Irish and Buckeyes more.
"Both of those schools are really good colleges," he said. "I like what they are about and the tradition at both of them.
"I like the coaches too. Coach Tressel is a good guy and Notre Dame's coaches are real good too. Both coaching staffs have made me feel wanted. I think Coach Weis is a really funny guy. He has a passion for the game. I like my position coach, Coach Brown too. He's real down-to-earth."
The No. 42 athlete in the country confirmed he has already visited both of his finalists multiple times.
"Between now and when I decide I just have to weigh all my options out and talk to my family to find out what is best for all of us."
