ESPN 150 LB Powell has two finalists
By Derek Tyson
Shortly after returning from his weekend visit to USC, four-star linebacker Quinton Powell (Daytona Beach, Fla./Mainland) has a final two.
Powell also decided to cancel his remaining visits to Oregon, South Carolina and Miami.
The 6-foot-2, 200-pound athlete announced his decision on Facebook: "Well I've decided to cancel the rest of my official visits to South Carolina, Oregon, & Miami. My top 2 Are Southern California and Florida."
Powell later confirmed his decision with ESPN.com in a text message.
"I felt like it was too much of a hassle," he wrote.
Powell is the No. 6-ranked outside linebacker and the No. 99 overall player in the ESPN 150. Powell originally committed to Florida before opening things back up in December. He is set to announce his decision on national signing day.
