McCaffrey's Top 11

Highlands Ranch (Colo.) Valor Christian running back Christian McCaffrey, the state of Colorado's top-prospect, has offers from all over the country.

But the four-star has started to trim the list down, and this week, he named a top 11.

"In no particular order, it's Stanford, Oregon, Washington, UCLA, Duke, Notre Dame, Michigan, Ohio State, Florida State, Nebraska and Wisconsin."

McCaffrey has maintained that he wants to make a decision prior to his senior season.

Defensive Decisions

A pair of defensive tackles in the West Top 10 made decisions on Saturday.

Bellevue (Wash.) defensive tackle Marcus Griffin, ranked #8 in the West and #37 nationally, committed to Washington State early Saturday.

A few hours later, La Habra (Calif.) defensive tackle Greg Gaines, ranked #6 in the West and #31 nationally, announced via Twitter his commitment to Boise State.
