By William Wilkerson

Top junior college defensive end Marcus Hardison will make his commitment announcement this week, according to Dodge City (Kan.) Community College defensive coordinator Pat Callahan.

Hardison is set to announce at 2 p.m. CT Friday. He said the top schools he is considering right now are Arizona State, Kansas State, West Virginia, Washington, South Florida and Auburn.

Several of those schools have sent coaches to Dodge City this week for one last recruiting push to get the 6-foot-4, 275-pound edge rusher on their campus.

Kansas State’s Bill Snyder stopped by early Wednesday morning. West Virginia’s Dana Holgorsen was on campus Tuesday. Texas Tech and Arizona State have also stopped by this week.

Hardison most recently took an official visit to Kansas State in December. He has also taken official visits to Texas Tech, Arizona State and West Virginia.
