There was a report where 5-star Isaac Nauta was quoted as saying UGA and TCU are “probably” his leaders.
On Wednesday, the nation’s No. 1 tight end clarified his comments which created such a buzz in recruiting circles. Nauta told the AJC that no school has an advantage for him.
“Of the four officials I have set, they are the ones who have stood out purely because I haven’t visited the other schools,” Nauta told the AJC. “(But) no leaders have been named yet.”
The 6-foot-4, 235-pounder will take official visits to Michigan and Southern California — in addition to UGA and TCU.
Nauta also told the AJC that UGA is a top school for him, but reiterates that no decision has been made yet.
One of the reasons why UGA is a top school for him is because of the possibility of playing with UGA 5-star QB commit Jacob Eason. The two 5-stars hung out for several days during last month’s Dawg Night prospect camp.
“Eason is a cool and funny guy and a great quarterback who hasn’t even reached his potential yet,” Nauta said. “Eason is going to be a baller on the next level. I mean, everyone wants to play with a great quarterback because they ultimately are in the driver’s seat in big-time games.”
Nauta says he talks to Eason on a regular basis and he was actually one of the first to text him when he de-committed from Florida State last month. So what did the quarterback say?
“Go Dawgs,” Eason told Nauta.
Nauta, who transferred from Buford High School to Florida’s IMG Academy for his senior season, plans to make his announcement at the Army All-American game on Jan. 9.
