Mike Blakely is ready to make his decision. Well, that is already made, but he is ready to make it known to the public on Tuesday.

Scout has confirmed that four-star running back Mike Blakely will be announcing his decision on Tuesday October 26 at Manatee High School at 9am.

Coach Conboy, an assistant coach at Manatee let Scout know that information.

It is down to Auburn and Florida for Blakely and he made these comments about each school not too long ago:

Florida: "I’ve just been there so many times, have been on that field and the atmosphere come game day is just crazy there. I actually was there when they played against LSU, but it was for an unofficial visit. It was definitely a better game day experience than I had in Auburn back in September."

Auburn: "It (the Auburn atmosphere when they played South Carolina) was nice, especially with the eagle. That’s what killed me. I loved the eagle. Tiger Walk was so much fun. Everybody said that Tiger Walk started there and it was so nice to see such tradition like that."

Blakely is currently the number 10 rated running back and the number 78 overall prospect in the country.

Stay tuned to Scout on Tuesday for the latest on this top back out of the Sunshine State.

Chad Simmons started out with Scout in 2003 covering top talent in Georgia and other areas in the South. He then moved on to another Recruiting Service from 2004-2008 before returning to Scout the first of 2009 to become Southeast Recruiting Manager.
