Running back Derrell Scott of Havelock, N.C., will announce his college decision on his birthday, Oct. 25.
Scott is down to USC, NC State, Florida State and Ohio State. USC, Florida State and NC State are the perceived front runners at this point.
Last month Scott said the Gamecocks and Seminoles were the clear top two but in recent weeks the Wolfpack has made a move. Scott visited State a couple of weeks ago and that visit helped the Wolfpack's positioning.
He also visited USC this summer for a camp and brought his parents along. Scott has made multiple visits to USC over the last two seasons.
