#UAGame practice: Day 2 notebook

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- There were several standouts at Tuesday's Day 2 practice for the Under Armour All-America Game (5 p.m. ET Friday, ESPN). Two players -- one for Team Nitro, the other for Team Highlight -- said they are closing in on their college decisions and will make their announcements Friday. Meanwhile, the nation's No. 1 player left the field at Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports with an injury.

Folston closing in on decision

Four-star athlete Tarean Folston (Cocoa, Fla./Cocoa) is set to make his college decision Friday. The 5-foot-9, 190-pound ESPN 150 will chose between Notre Dame, Florida State and Oregon.

Folston has been a standout defensive back during the first two days of practice, but he's being recruited by all three of his final schools to play running back.

He said he likes the familiar feeling he gets from Notre Dame and Oregon.

"It's just a home feeling, the fans around there are great fans. The community is all involved in football. It's just a nice town and a home feeling environment. With Oregon, it's pretty much the same as Notre Dame. They are two different schools but I call it 'the village,' just everybody in that place comes together and helps support the team."

Florida State is the only school Folston is considering from his home state, but he insists distance won't be a factor in his decision.

Auburn LB commit Johnson taking visits

Trey Johnson (Lawrenceville, Ga./Central Gwinnett) has been committed to Auburn for over a year, so with the 1-4 start by the Tigers and news that the ESPN 150 prospect is taking official visits, some eyebrows are sure to be raised. According to Central Gwinnett head coach Todd Wofford, that was the plan all along.

Tom Hauck for ESPN.comESPN linebacker Trey Johnson is committed to Auburn, but is planning visits to Florida State, Ohio State and USC.
"He loves Gene Chizik and he loves Brian VanGorder, but he just wants to cover his bases and he always said he was going to take visits, so he wants to check out schools that have big-time linebacker traditions," Wofford said. "He likes the kids that Auburn has committed right now, but at the same time other schools are kind of using Auburn’s season as a factor with him."

Wofford said USC was one of the first schools to come by during the evaluation period, and Ed Orgeron was by last Wednesday as well. Urban Meyer at Ohio State calls once a week, as do coaches from FSU. Coincidently those are the programs, other than Auburn, that Johnson plans to take official visits to. Johnson is going to Ohio State on Nov. 23 for the Michigan game, to USC most likely the second week of January and will be taking officials to FSU and Auburn. Wofford discussed each of the four programs set to host the No. 129 prospect in the country.
