Even if the talents of Stacy Coley, Jordan Cunningham, Jermaine Grace and Adrian Baker could be considered gifts, then the analogy of the University of Miami, Florida State, Stanford and other universities as last-minute shoppers doesnt quite fit.
After all, schools have been trying to sign the uncommitted Broward County football standouts for months, if not years.
It is only the student-athletes indecision and in some cases a flair for the dramatic that has kept their choices a mystery, one that figures to be unraveled on National Signing Day.
Here is a closer look at the four Broward players who have two things in common they are ranked among ESPNs top 200 players in the nation, and they will wait until Wednesday to make their college announcements.
Stacy Coley, a 6-1, 175-pound wide receiver for Northeast, is a four-star recruit and has more than 25 offers. He is the highest-rated player of the four, coming in at No. 47 on ESPNs list.
FSU is considered the front-runner for Coley, but Miami and Mississippi are also finalists. His announcement will be made at 11 a.m. and televised by ESPNU.
Coley, ranked No. 11 nationally among uncommitted prospects, is a smooth and fluid receiver who is faster on game day than on your stopwatch. He shows a feel and a vision for route-running.
He is much more likely to make a defender miss than to break a tackle, but perhaps the latter will come as he gets stronger.
I think hes the best receiver in the state, ESPN recruiting expert Corey Long said. Hes very competitive and has the ability to separate.
Cunningham, a 6-1, 175-pound wide receiver for University, is a four-star recruit with more than 40 offers. ESPN ranks him 107th in the nation among all prospects.
He has narrowed his choices to Vanderbilt, Stanford, Miami and FSU and will make his announcement at 10 a.m. on ESPNU. He also has visited Oklahoma State.
Cunningham is not a true burner but is sneaky fast with his long strides. He is not afraid of going over the middle and will go up and make grabs in the red zone. He tends to make acrobatic catches and is also a willing blocker.
Some think Cunningham will choose Stanford, but Long said it will be Vanderbilt.
[Jordan] is smart academically and football smart, too, Long said. He really showed his toughness in the state final when he sprained his MCL making a tremendous catch and then making an even better one that led to the winning touchdown.
Grace, a 6-1, 210-pound outside linebacker at Miramar, will announce his choice at 2 p.m. on ESPN. Miami is considered the front-runner, but Louisville is also a finalist. He also had visited Tennessee earlier.
The four-star recruit has 20 offers and is No. 138 on ESPNs board. He has the speed of a wide receiver, but he is tough enough to stuff the inside run and athletic enough to be effective in pass coverage.
Hes a really good tackler he doesnt miss many, Long said. Hes a leader and can range sideline to sideline. I think he will go to Miami and turn out to be a pretty good linebacker.
Baker, a 6-1, 165-pound cornerback/wide receiver from Chaminade, said he has decided on his school but will wait until Wednesday at 10:45 a.m. to make the announcement.
Ranked 197th by ESPN, the three-star recruit had more than 30 offers and had committed to FSU in December. But he changed his mind and now has Clemson and Oklahoma as his two finalists.
As a receiver, Baker is a vertical threat with the quickness to develop his skills on shorter routes. But because of his height and the value of having a taller cornerback, Baker is projected more as a defensive back. He also needs to get stronger so he can get better on run support.
I think he will choose Clemson, Long said. He can get beat by a step and still catch up because of his long strides and long arms.
