Maddox narrows to five, will announce Friday

Anderson, S.C., T.L. Hanna running back Brian Maddox, who will debut on as a four-star prospect in June, has narrowed his list of schools to five, and will make his commitment public Friday at 6 p.m.

Maddox, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.48 seconds, recently took unofficial visits to Chapel Hill and Blacksburg, and he enjoyed both trips.

"I had been to North Carolina once before, but this time I got to meet a lot more of the coaches and people around the program.
