We're less than two days away from National Signing Day the drama gets set to unfold on the unofficial recruiting holiday.
The two big races to follow will be those of the area's top defensive tackles: Centennial's Jay-nard Bostwick and Atlantic's Keith Bryant.
Bostwick will kick off the day as he's set to make his announcement at 8 A.M. between Florida, Miami and Alabama. Will Muschamp and the Gators got the last chance to make an impression on Bostwick as he was in Gainesville this weekend for an official visit.
5 1/2 hours later, Bryant will declare to the world where he'll be playing next year. In an announcement that will be televised by ESPN, Bryant will make his decision between Miami, Florida State and USC.
Bryant spent the weekend at FAU, but was sent home on Saturday morning for not taking the visit seriously.
The Eagles' standout was once committed to Miami, but later backed off that pledge.
Five other notes
-Syracuse coaches have to be feeling a little worried as Signing Day approaches. Dwyer defensive end and 'Cuse commit Malik Brown took a visit to Tenneesse this weekend. The Vols have been going hard at the Panthers standout since Butch Jones was hired as head coach and it looks like their persistence is paying off.
Brown will make his final decision Wednesday between Syracuse, Tennessee and USF.
-On a positive note for Syracuse, the Orangemen locked down a commitment from one of the area's most explosive athletes. Atlantic's Brisly Estime gave his verbal to Syracuse this weekend while on a visit at the school.
-After just one year of playing football, Jamario Lambert will be signing a Division 1 Letter of Intent on Wednesday. The Vero Beach receiver committed to Louisiana Tech this weekend while visiting the campus.
The senior broke onto the scene in his one year of football, hauling in 32 ctaches for 446 yards and 7 touchdowns.
-Dave Doeren has reeled in another high profile transfer at North Carolina State. Today Treasure Coast grad and former West Virginia announced his intentions to transfer to N.C. State.
Copeland left WVU this year midway through his freshman season. Copeland will join former Dwyer star and Florida quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who transferred to North Carolina State last month.
-After a season in prep school, Keith Byars is heading to the Big 10. The former Boca Raton running back committed to Purdue this weekend, making him the second area player to commit to the Boilermakers this year. Cardinal Newman tight end Matt Burke pledged to Purdue last month.
Byars spent the past year at Milford Academy in New York.
