College football recruiting news

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

Mississippi Gulf Coast Bulldogs offensive lineman Chris Frigo will sign with UAB Wednesday morning.  The 6-foot-2, 290 pound sophomore received offers from UAB, Louisiana Tech, Southern Miss, Troy, Georgia State, Georgia Southern and Middle Tennessee and will have two years of eligibility remaining.

The former St. Stanislaus standout along with his brother, Craig, were members of the Class 4A State Championship team in 2009.  Craig is expected to sign with South Florida.

Mississippi Gulf Coast Bulldogs wide receiver D'haquille Williams will officially choose between Auburn and LSU on Wednesday. He first committed to LSU then changed his mind and said he would sign with Auburn.  The Louisiana native has gone in different directions so it will be interesting to see where he finally ends up.  He's an exceptional wide receiver who most likely will play one season before he declares for the NFL draft after next season.

LSU football fans received great news on Tuesday. All-American linebacker Clifton Garrett of Plainfield South, Illinois committed to the Tigers of head coach Les Miles at a news conference.

ESPN has the 6-foot-2, 225 pound standout rated the #3 inside linebacker in the nation and the #37 ranked prospect in the county.  He selected LSU over Ole Miss and Tennessee.

Meridian safety C.J. Hampton of Meridian High School will announce his final commitment on Friday. The 6-foot-1, 195 pound standout will choose between Ole Miss and Alabama. 

Hampton committed to Ole Miss in June of 2012 and is most likely still leaning to the Rebels but Alabama head coach Nick Saban has pulled out all the stops in trying to land the gifted safety.

According to Hampton, he's been speaking with Saban on the phone and he says Saban believes he can come in and take over for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix next season as a true freshman.

24/7 Sports has Hampton rated as the #5 safety in the nation.  He says early playing time will help him make his final selection on Friday.
