Mirko Jurkovic Jr., an offensive lineman from Bradenton, Fla., is set to announce where he will play college football, his coach said Sunday.

Former Florida State quarterback Chris Weinke, the head coach at IMG Academy, said the 6-foot-5, 275-pound Jurkovic has narrowed his list to Nebraska, Ohio State and Florida. Jurkovic apparently will inform media of his decision early Monday afternoon.

Jurkovic, listed as a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, has said he's being recruited by Nebraska to play tackle. He made an unofficial recruiting visit to Lincoln last month.

The tweet occurred about 48 hours after Dale announced his verbal commitment to Nebraska following his unofficial visit to Lincoln last week. On his "de-commit" tweet, he mentioned Florida, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Oregon and Arizona as schools he's still considering.
