Wesley poised to announce decision

Three-star Atlanta (Ga.) Crim defensive end Quinton Wesley says he has made his college decision, but it will be a few more hours before the rest of the football world learns of his destination.

"As of right now, I am committed," he said. "I'll be announcing my decision at 2 o'clock (Tuesday). Everyone will know then. But as of right now, some of the coaches don't know, so I want to let everybody know."

Wesley (6-5, 226, 5.0) said he'll be choosing between Alabama, Kentucky and Mississippi State.

"I don't have any hints or any of that stuff," he said. "Everybody will know (on Tuesday). But I liked all three of them a lot."

Wesley is coming off an official visit to Alabama he deemed "great."

"It was just a nice all-around place," he added. "A nice place for football."

He said that Mississippi State offers a "family atmosphere" he likes, and that Kentucky has made a good connection with the coaching staff and opportunity for early playing time.

Wesley is coming off a senior season which saw him record 140 tackles, 20 tackles for loss and 15 sacks. He's currently rated the No. 20 weakside defensive end prospect in the nation by Rivals.com.
