Tom Hauck for ESPN.comConcord (Calif.) De La Salle junior Michael Hutchings is one of the premier linebacker prospects in the class of 2013.
While he has remained open throughout the recruiting process, Hutchings said Sunday at the Los Angeles Nike Football Training Camp that after what will likely be a hectic spring evaluation period, he plans to trim his list to a more manageable group of between five and eight schools. He hasn't yet decided which schools will make the list, but he does have a firm grasp on which school will top it.
