SAN ANTONIO, Texas — Some reports have suggested that the nation’s No. 3 cornerback could be making his commitment this weekend, but that won’t be happening.
Trayvon Mullen, a four-star prospect from Coconut Creek High School (Pompano Beach, Fla.), told SEC Country that he will be announcing his commitment on ESPN during their televised National Signing Day event.
The 6-foot-2, 172-pounder knows which schools will be in the running until the end.
“I have already taken official visits to Florida State, Louisville and TCU,” Mullen said. “Then I have Clemson and LSU later this month. Those are the five schools I’m rocking with right now. That is my final five.”
Could any other school make a late run in the weeks leading up to signing day?
“I doubt it. It’s too late in the mix right now,” Mullen said. “I feel like I am very comfortable with these schools right now.”
One school that Mullen talked about with SEC Country was LSU. Right now, according to his 247Sports Crystal Ball, the Tigers hold a slight lead with them receiving 52 percent of all predictions.
LSU, he says, is telling him all of the right things.
“They are telling me that I fit their style as a cornerback,” Mullen said. “Coach (Corey) Raymond, the cornerbacks coach, is a great dude. I feel like I could be coached by him and be a great player. I think I could play right away.”
With Kevin Steele now out as defensive coordinator at LSU, many fans may wonder if his departure from Baton Rouge would have any affect on his status with the Tigers. There’s good news on that front for LSU.
“Coach Steele leaving really has no effect on my recruitment because I talk to coach Raymond, mainly.”
Mullen will compete in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl this Saturday before taking his final two official visits to Clemson on Jan. 15 and LSU on Jan. 22.
