The when-will-they-commit saga of Plant's hot recruiting trinity -- quarterback Phillip Ely, offensive lineman Tony Posada and running back/linebacker James Wilder Jr. -- could be coming to an end with tenative plans to hold an Aug. 11 press conference at Plant.

But most likely, it will be just Ely and Posada, according to Plant coach Bob Weiner.

"James is just not as ready,'' Weiner said.

The Plant coach is still debating dates for the Ely/Posada announcement, but said it's "likely" to be in the late afternoon on Aug. 11, though Aug. 10 remains a possibility.

Wilder (No. 1), Ely (8) and Posada (11) are all ranked in the Times Fab 50 list of the area's top recruits. So far, five of the top 10 have verbally commitments.

Posada is thought to be deciding between Michigan and USF, while Ely has a short list of five schools. Wilder is still deciding between his impressive list, though Florida State, Florida and Georgia appear to be the frontrunners.
