Hot prospects: The Hurricanes remain in the running for several of the top remaining uncommitted recruits. Scottsdale, Ariz., five-star athlete Davonte Neal still has a visit scheduled and won't make a final decision until after signing day. Eddie Goldman, the No. 1 DT from Washington, and No. 5 DT Leonard Williams out of Daytona Beach Mainland also remain strong possibilities for coach Al Golden's program. Also still scheduled to make a visit is four-star DT Darius Hamilton from New Jersey Don Bosco Prep, and OT Avery Young from Palm Beach Gardens will take his final official visit with the Hurricanes before making his decision.
