Top Players Remain On The Board

The top players remaining on the board as we head into Signing Day Week should all sign letters of intent to major DI programs. And for most of them, they have it narrowed down to one or two schools.

Remaining On The Board

Name Pos. Rating RR Hometown Schools
Jamie Robinson DB 6.0 Rock Hill (SC) Northwestern list
Travil Jamison RB 5.7 Greenville (SC) list
Mike Davis RB 5.7 Columbia (SC) list
Hivera Green OL 5.6 Conway (SC) list
Reynaldo Hunter WR 5.5 Duncan (SC) James F. Byrne list
Mike Washington DB 5.4 Allendale (SC) Allendale-Fairfax list

Northwestern defensive back Jamie Robinsonhas his list down to just Florida State and Virginia Tech. He told us last week that neither had the lead on the other, and both were impressive in his mind. His decision will come down to what is best for him. His parents support any decision he makes, while his sister still wants him to change his mind and go to Clemson. That will not happen, according to Robinson.

Greenville running back Travil Jamison entered the season as one of the top ranked running backs and quite frankly, he is still a very solid prospect. His recruiting slowed down considerably, however, when his test scores did not come in until late last week. Robinson told us that he is down to Carolina and Clemson. He was to visit Clemson this weekend. Jamison rushed for 2,055 yards and 24 touchdowns this past season.

Columbia High School's Mike Davis was SCVarsity.com's top running back, getting the No. 1 spot on our 2004 All-State football team. Davis rushed for 2,042 yards and 26 touchdowns and averaged more than 9 yards per carry. He has his list narrowed down to Clemson, South Carolina, and Maryland, and is scheduled to make an announcement Monday morning.

Conway defensive end Hivera Green had a very impressive list early in the season, but when other players began committing to schools early, this 6-5, 271lbs athlete found that schools were backing off of him. The thoughts are now that he's got Virginia Tech, who he is visiting this weekend, and Clemson at the top of his list. He did comment that he was impressed with his visit with the Gamecocks, but they are though of as having only a distant outside chance at a commitment from Green.

Byrnes wide receiver Reynaldo Hunter is most impressed by Appalachian State. He has visited SC State, as well. UNC had Hunter high on their list, but that door is closed now, as they have no more room for a wide receiver in this class. SC State has made a good push at some of the state of South Carolina's top athletes, and have gotten commitments from several. Hunter is certainly one the Bulldogs would love to have, but it appears the edge right now is with App State.

Allendale Fairfax's Mike Washington entered the season as one of the state's top prospects in the secondary, but the offers did not come in as expected. South Carolina and Clemson each offered Washington early on, and he got interest from Georgia and NC State. The Wolfpack would be Washington's favorite if the offer is on the table, but if not, South Carolina leads over Clemson.
