Top recruit Hand set to announce decision

Defensive end Da'Shawn Hand (Woodbridge, Va./Woodbridge), the No. 6-ranked prospect in the country, is announcing his decision at noon on Thursday. The ESPN 300 prospect will be deciding between Alabama, Florida and Michigan during a press conference at his school.

Hand has kept everything very close to the vest and done a great job of keeping the fans in suspense. His mentor and former coach, John Harris, has been there the entire way of his recruitment, though, so he has some knowledge about Hand's process. Harris offers up some insight into each program and why these three schools are on Hand’s final list.
