NEW YORK (SI.com) -- Consensus top-10 football recruit Sharrif Floyd has narrowed his college choice to four schools: Ohio State, Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina.

Floyd, who is currently in San Antonio for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, will make his decision live during the national broadcast of the game. A source close to Floyd says that the star defensive tackle will have the four schools represented by hats on a table when he makes his decision on Saturday.

Over the past two months, Floyd has whittled his list down from about 10 schools, eliminating programs such as Boston College, Cincinnati, Penn State, Rutgers and USC.

Floyd originally made his mark at the U.S. Army National Combine this time last year. In the spring, he was named the MVP of the TEST Sports Clubs Premier Showcase, the deepest collection of combine talent in the mid-Atlantic region. He followed up that performance the next day by winning the Maxwell Award at the invite-only Football University outside Philadelphia. Since then, he has elevated his status to a consensus top-10 recruit nationally.

Floyd, who dominated the Aloha Prep Bowl before heading to San Antonio for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, has recently been rumored to be an Ohio State lean. The player has taken three official visits this year to Florida, USC and Ohio State. The source close to Floyd said that the player is not willing to tip which hat he will put on come Saturday's all-star game.
