Brookville (Lynchburg, VA) defensive end Zack McCray , one of the top overall prospects in the state of Virginia’s class of 2010, is in the process of narrowing down his list of schools to single digits. He knows a majority of the programs that will make the cut already but is leaving a few spots open, perhaps for schools that have yet to offer.

“It was a fun game, don’t get me wrong, but it didn’t do anything in helping me make a decision,” McCray said. “I met some
