Four-star Miami (Fla.) Christian wide receiver Marc Britt just took to Twitter to release the final three schools in his recruiting process as Early National Signing Day creeps closer and closer for those in the Class of 2020.

Along with Penn State and LSU, it was Florida that nabbed the third spot on Britt’s graphic. The last time he spoke to Inside the Gators, the south Florida product preached the importance of communication between himself and his future coaches.
This time around, his sentiments remained the same.
“Me and the Penn State coaches talk mostly every day. Same for Florida and LSU coaches,” he said when asked for the primary reason for why each school made the cut. “I like UF and LSU’s campuses.”
The Florida coaching staff is finding itself in battles with the Nittany Lions, as of late. Most recently, the Gators lured linebacker Derek Wingo away from a Penn State commitment, but the Nittany Lions got Florida wide receiver commit Jaquavion Fraziars to take an official visit.
LSU and Florida also make the final lists for many of the same recruits, including Gator commits Leonard Manuel, Jonathan Odom and Jovens Janvier; LSU commits Major Burns and Jalen Lee; as well as uncommitted defensive back Joel Williams (UF de-commit) and Chantz Williams.
Despite these similarities, there was no feel one way or another about which school(s) might be more or less interested in. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder took the “top 3 no order” approach throughout the interview and ascribed blanket statements to his finalists. Regarding the messages of each team, he said,
“All three of the schools tell me they love the way I play. I play smart and strong, my jumping skills are great, and that’s what they need on the team.”
Back in April, Britt put out a top six that included the three finalists along with Alabama, Pitt, and Miami, where he formerly pledged his commitment.
Though it may seem like a bit of a shocker that a school 20 minutes away from a top prospect’s high school does not make a courtesy appearance in his top three, 305 native Britt said that the Canes are out for good.
“I don’t talk with no coaches. I don’t hear nothing from them.”
Britt said that he is planning on taking visits to Penn State, LSU, and Florida during the season and while he did not reveal an exact timetable for his commitment, he promised it would be “soon.”
Britt is the No. 278 ranked prospect in the nation according to the CBS Sports Composite.
