Tevin Drake said he has decided to sign a national letter of intent Wednesday, but won't reveal his choice until then. 

Drake initially said he would not sign Wednesday, the first day football players may do so according the NCAA rules.

The Nature Coast running back has scholarship offers from Western Michigan, Florida Atlantic, Florida International and Memphis. Drake took an official visit to Western Michigan in January. He recently had an offer rescinded from Marshall, and a Miami offer pulled months ago.

Drake said Marshall told him the program had run out of scholarships and canceled his official visit last weekend. Miami secured commitments from three running backs, including Tampa Bay Tech's Maurice Hagens, effectively ending the Hurricanes' courtship of Drake.

At least one Nature Coast volunteer assistant has been working feverishly to drum up interest in Drake, though many doors seem to have closed. Drake said he had not received any additional offers as of Monday morning.

Drake finished as the North Suncoast’s second-leading rusher of all time with 4,981 career yards and 69 touchdowns. He helped Nature Coast to a 7-4 finish and a playoff berth.
