Anthony Chickillo deciding Thursday
September, 8, 2010
By Corey Long, ESPN Recruiting
There's no secret that some of the best recruiting for a program is done by its committed prospects. The rules that apply to college coaches don't apply to the players that have given non-binding verbal commitments. That means they can call whoever they want and send numerous Facebook messages promoting the school of their choice. Naturally, many of the nation's top prospects befriend each other on the offseason camp circuit and keep in touch throughout the year. So it's no surprise when defensive end Anthony Chickillo (Tampa, Fla./Alonso) says that FSU commit James Wilder II (Tampa, Fla./Plant) is in his ear about the Seminoles Chickillo, a four-star prospect that's rated No. 80 in the ESPNU 150, will make his announcement Thursday afternoon at his school. Miami, Florida, FSU, South Florida, Alabama and Tennessee have all made the final cut.
