CB Payne adds four offers in one day

By Josh Moyer

Wednesday proved to be a busy day for ESPN Watch List prospect D'Andre Payne, who picked up four new offers -- including the one for which he's been waiting.


The cornerback out of Washington (D.C.) Friendship Collegiate now holds 32 scholarship offers. The newest came from Rutgers, Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Wisconsin.

Payne said earlier this week that seven schools are standing out for him -- and the Volunteers made that short list despite having not pulled the trigger. Since that's no longer the case, he's already gearing up to visit Knoxville in the near future.

"It feels good, man," Payne said. "I'm excited to get down and check everything out."

Payne's favorites at this point include Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Ohio State, Maryland, Michigan and Tennessee. He initially wanted to commit before his senior season, but he no longer has a timetable.
