Mecole Hardman, Jr. is ranked the nation’s No. 1 athlete, and according to DawgNation.com readers, the one player that fans really want to commit to UGA.
In a poll with over 8,000 votes, Hardman received nearly 20 percent of them and was the leading vote-getter. Now, UGA fans are trying to get the hashtag #MecoleToTheHedges to trend on Twitter. The 5-star says he is overwhelmed with the support from Bulldogs fans.
“Man, it’s crazy,” Hardman told DawgNation. “I love it, though, it shows how much they want me.”
So will Bulldogs fans get what they want come National Signing Day in February? That’s the day Hardman will publically announce his commitment.
“I don’t know,” he said. “We’ll have to wait until signing day.”
The Elbert County star will silently commit around October or November. It’s believed that UGA and Tennessee are at the top of his list, although he says no school holds an advantage over another.
