Victor sticks to script

MIAMI -- Binjimen Victor has never named a leader in his recruitment. Still, he knows that public perception is that Florida leads the pack. Give the Rivals1000 wide receiver a chance to dispute that, though, and he does.
Victor insists he's wide open and no one team holds an advantage. On that front, he doesn't much care what others think.
"I know what people say about Florida and me, but that's not accurate," Victor said. "I'm wide open. I don't like any one school more than all the others at all. Sooner or later, that will happen."
It seems as though it will be sooner rather than later. According to Victor, a list trimming in in the works. A date for such a thing hasn't been set, but Victor is, for the first time, working on it.
"I'm going to cut it down, but it's not going to be now," Victor said. "I'm going to do it during the season."
The process has begun. In fact, Victor says he knows a cou0ple of schools that will move on when he decides to shorten his list of options. He admits to that freely. Getting specifics out of him is a bit more difficult.
"I know a few, but I don't want to speak on that too much yet," he said. "I'm gonna keep that to myself for now."
Victor says he intends to visit schools such as West Virginia, Ohio State and others this season. He lists Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio State and Miami as the schools that are currently recruiting him the hardest. He intends to announce a verbal commitment at January's U.S. Army All-American Game but will wait until signing day if he is unprepared to do so at that time.
Victor, who competes in track as well as football at Florida's Coconut Creek High School, recently finished third in the triple-jump at the state track meet.
