Shawn Burgess-Becker and Calvin Ridley have been close friends since the third grade.
On Sunday, they plan on announcing their college decisions to keep their friendship going at the same college.
Burgess-Becker (left) and Ridley – two of South Florida’s most talented Class of 2015 prospects – took to their Twitter accounts Thursday to post a list of top schools with Miami, Alabama, Florida State and Ohio State in common. Burgess-Becker also listed UCF and Florida among his possible suitors with Ridley adding Clemson.
“I’ve visited most of the colleges [on my list],” Burgess-Becker said at Monarch High School on Thursday afternoon. “All of the schools have beautiful campuses. All of those schools have just been recruiting me heavy.
“I just felt good to make my decision on Sunday.”
Added Ridley, a young man of few words: “I’ve been known what school I wanted to go to.”
