This one is about Kelee Ringo and Darnell Washington. With that, any news involving these two will be something big.
Especially this close to signing day.
There are reports swirling about both young men right now. Will they sign on National Signing Day? What are their plans?
Let’s first start with the latest news on Kelee Ringo. The previous plan for the nation’s No. 1 CB and No 6 overall prospect (per the 247Sports Composite) was to sign on Wednesday during the early period and keep that decision quiet until he let the world know on national TV during the 2020 All-American Bowl in Texas.
A recent 247Sports report stated there was a chance that Ringo would not sign at all during the early period.
If that was the case, he could then make sure no leaks were made regarding his decision because he was not set to be an early enrollee. When reached on Tuesday, Ringo said that the plan had not gone off-script.
“I do plan on signing tomorrow but keeping it quiet until I announce on Jan. 4th at the All-American Bowl,” Ringo told DawgNation.
That’s the latest with one 5-star target. What about the other elite 5-star Bulldog priority from the West Coast?
Darnell Washington made it known on Tuesday via his Twitter account that he will not be singing anywhere on the first day of the early signing period. The 5-star ATH rates as the nation’s No. 1 ATH and the No. 10 overall prospect for this cycle.
He had posted this previous tweet to his social account earlier in the day.
A source very close to Washington was also able to confirm those two tweets were accurate. He does not plan to sign anywhere during the early period.
The 6-foot-5, 262-pound senior from Desert Pines in Nevada represents the best-remaining hope for Georgia to add a 5-star talent to the tight end room with the 2020 class.
The 5-star prospect was not an early enrollee and this move allows him to take more time with his process. He was considered a strong lean to Georgia by the popular 247Sports “Crystal Ball” feature but had taken a couple of attention-grabbing visits to Miami and Tennessee over the last two cycles.
Washington was expected to sign during the early period and keep that decision on the hush until he announced that news on Jan. 2 at the Under Armour All-American Game. He still has the ability to make a commitment on that date, but that timeline has now changed.
