Loston announcement at hand
Several prospects at the Under Armour All-American Game will be participating in a skills competition Friday afternoon.
Many eyes will not be trained on one of the participants though. During the competition, five star safety Craig Loston from Aldine (Tex.) Eisenhower will let his college intentions be known.
"I am going to decide today," Loston said after Friday morning's practice session. "It is going to be between LSU, Alabama, Oregon, and Texas A&M."
He talked about each of his finalists.
First up was his rumored favorite, the LSU Tigers.
"It is an SEC school," Loston said. "They didn't have a very good year but they finished strong."
Another SEC program that Loston is a fan of is the Crimson Tide. He talked about the program that Nick Saban is building in Tuscaloosa.
"Alabama has a good program," Loston said. "They did great this year and are heading in the right direction."
Loston is looking at one Pac-10 program as well.
"Oregon did well this year," Loston said. "I think they are going to do really good next year."
The final school among his finalists is Texas A&M, a program he committed to nearly two years ago before eventually backing off of that decision.
"Texas A&M didn't really have a good year but they are building the program so they should be better next year," Loston said. "They are on their way up to the top."
In the final hours leading up to his announcement, Loston said he has already made up his mind. He explained the reasons he chose the particular school.
"I just chose the place where I felt comfortable. I just chose the place where I will like playing with the same people for the next three or four years, the coaches, and the people around the program. I also like the atmosphere at where I will be."
While he has an official scheduled to Alabama for January 9th, Loston said that once he gives his word on Friday his recruitment will be concluded.
"When I announce today I am done with the process," Loston said.
