OT Cyrus Kouandjio down to Alabama, Auburn;DT Darian Cooper down to Iowa, Michigan State; RB Delonte Morton bound for juco instead of Maryland

By Josh Barr

DeMatha Coach Bill McGregor says that uncommitted linemen Cyrus Kouandjio and Darian Cooper are struggling to make a final decision but both seem to have narrowed their choices to two schools. The period for high school seniors to formally accept scholarship offers and sign binding National Letters-of-Intent begins Wednesday.

Kouandjio, an All-Met offensive tackle who is considered one of the nation's top prospects, is down to Southeastern Conference rivals Alabama and Auburn. His older brother, Arie, is a freshman on the Crimson Tide's squad, but McGregor was uncertain whether he Cyrus will join Arie in Tuscaloosa.

"I don't know how it's going to play out," McGregor said. "I was with him for a long time yesterday too --- let's make a decision, get on with life. It wouldn't surprise me one bit if he says Auburn tomorrow. But I don't know."

Cooper, a second-team All-Met defensive tackle, is down to Iowa and Michigan State, McGregor said.

"He's going back and forth and just doesn't know," McGregor said. "He's looking for someone to tell him what to do."

DeMatha defensive back Jordan Lomax over the weekend committed to Iowa, switching from a preseason commitment to Virginia.

Also, McGregor said that running back Delonte Morton, who before the season committed to Maryland, will instead will head to a junior college. Morton had missed all of his junior year because of a knee injury.
