One of the top prospects in the state of Pennsylvania tore the ACL in his left knee last month and is awaiting surgery. In the meantime, defensive back Dondi Kirby (Monroeville, Pa./Gateway) has narrowed his list of close to two dozen scholarship offers down to seven schools.

"All the schools said I still have an offer," Kirby said. "But I have a final seven -- Florida, USC, Maryland, Louisville, North Carolina, Illinois and Iowa."

Kirby sustained the injury at a 7-on-7 in Michigan. He will have surgery in about two weeks and will miss his entire senior football season.
