One of UGA’s top targets is less than 24 hours from making his college decision.
Will it be the Bulldogs or Auburn?
Jaleel Laguins, a 4-star linebacker from Oconee County High School, will announce between the two SEC rivals, among other schools, shortly after 7 a.m. on Wednesday.
On the eve of the big announcement, the AJC traveled to Oconee County’s football practice on Tuesday to ask Jaleel’s teammates this question:
Which school do you think Jaleel will commit to? And why? Here are the predictions:
Jackson Manders, RB/LB: “I think he’ll pick Georgia because it’s near our high school.”
Darius Lattimore, DE: “I hope he goes to Georgia. I think that will be a good fit for him. I hope he makes it big because Georgia sends a lot of people into the NFL draft.”
Derrick Chaney, DT: “I think he is going to Auburn because it’s such a cool place. He also put on his SnapChat about how he had the No. 44 on (during his visit this past weekend) and he was in the middle of the locker room.”
Jarvis Stevens, WR/CB: “I think he is going to Auburn because Auburn is going to be the next best freshman team next year in college.”
Miles Pettway, FB/SS: “I’m hoping he goes to UGA. I think he’s definitely going there. He obviously lives in Georgia and has a lot of family here. I don’t think he would want to leave them.”
Tre Wiley, DL: “Jaleel is going to Georgia because I know for a fact. I don’t even have to think about that one.”
NOW IT’S YOUR TURN: Which college Jaleel pick? Please post your prediction below.
