Give Amarius Mims credit for finding a novel way to share his top six schools this week. Mims, the 5-star OT from Bleckley County in Middle Georgia, used his social platforms to give his grandmother shoutout on her birthday.
It would appear Mims now has a final six with a decision looing on August 15.
i will be committing AUG. 15th!!!
MARK YOUR CALENDARS🙂

Which schools still have a chance at the player rated as the nation’s No. 2 OT and the No. 6 overall recruit for the 2021 cycle on the 247Sports Composite ratings?
Well, think about mostly the SEC. With one additional program from the ACC and the Big 12 making that cut, too.
Mims came up with a top 6 which features Alabama, Auburn, FSU, Georgia, Oklahoma and Tennessee.

The hearts at the end for Granny were an especially nice touch. It does appear that his grandmother helped raise a very thankful and respectful young man.
Not just a future left tackle who could easily develop into one of the most imposing blind-side blockers in college football.
Mims has placed a lot of focus on Alabama and Georgia in his recruitment. Both schools have been de facto leaders or co-leaders at the pole position of his decision for some time.
It is worth noting that Mims has really only been an offensive tackle at the high school level for just one full season. Check out his sophomore highlight tape below.
DawgNation also captured some early junior year film on Mims in this embedded file below. This was from late August of 2019.
Mims is planning to enroll early. He is also committed to playing in the 2021 Under Armour All-American Game.
Georgia QB commit Brock Vandagriff also made sure to acknowledge his hopes for Mims and his eventual decision next month.
