While most of the state’s top 2010 class offensive line prospects have already committed, two notables – Deep Run (Glen Allen, VA) offensive tackle Khamrone Kolb – have yet to commit. That could change by the end of summer, though, as each prospect is at least considering ending the recruiting process within the next couple of months.

Virginia, Virginia Tech battle for Davis…

Davis, a 6-5, 270-pound prospect, maintains that he is open to any school out there, but it appears a decision could be looming. Exactly how quickly the Wildcats standout will commit is uncertain, but he acknowledged a decision could come before the month is out.
