Justin Hilliard closing in on college decision. Who's the team to beat?

Cincinnati (OH) St. Xavier linebacker Justin Hilliard completed his final two pre-decision college visits over the weekend and plans to make his choice known to the world on July 2 at his high school.

While he maintains a final five of Alabama, Iowa, Michigan, Notre Dame and Ohio State, I think it's down to the Buckeyes and Fighting Irish, with Iowa still sort of in the picture. I've heard both trips went very well and there's confidence on both sides that he ends up committing to their school.

I don't think Hilliard has made up his mind and I doubt a ton of new information is going to come out over the next week as his circle will be tight with his decision so close. I'm still hearing Ohio State is the likely pick for the St. Xavier star, so I'm sticking with that prediction for now. However, it wouldn't be shocking if he decided to play his college football in South Bend.

If any new information emerges over the next week, we'll make sure to bring it to you. This is going to be a very interesting story to follow.

I think it is a well written article and he's probably spot on.

I'm of the opinion that if a player sets a decision date he knows where he is going.

So pretty much the same information Mr. Birm & Mr. Jordan have relayed to us already...

I know what to make of it: Miles likes Hilliard to OSU, but wouldn't be shocked if he ended up at ND. Not trying to be a smart ass here, so please don't think that, but it seems pretty cut & dry.

I'd be shocked if he wasn't a Buckeye. He's a lock IMO.

I believe Hilliard has already made up his mind, he just wanted to make the announcement at his high school and that is the earliest date he could arrange it.    Anything can happen and change a recruits mind but, he has been visiting Ohio State alot and seems to have a close and special relationship with the coaches and players.  I believe his decision will be the scarlet and gray. Nothing is final, until its signed.  



Step aside Nick, Urban is the real rock star!
