Jaleel Laguins, who is the state’s No. 1-rated outside linebacker, committed to UGA over Auburn on Wednesday. But his recruiting process is far from over.
Minutes after verbally committing to the hometown school, Laguins told the AJC that his recruitment won’t be over until he signs his papers.
“I don’t think it’s completely fair to all of the other teams that didn’t get to show me their campus and bring me to their campus,” Laguins said.
“It’s a positive for Georgia that I live 15 minutes away, but it’s not completely fair for Notre Dame or Missouri or Oklahoma that I didn’t get a chance to go out there. I just want to give them the same opportunity that everyone else had.”
He will visit Nebraska in September, but did not say if that would be for an unofficial or official visit.
Laguins could also consider taking an official visit to Auburn, which appeared to make a late charge at Laguins before he settled on UGA at Wednesday’s ceremony at Oconee County.
UGA has several other commits (including Chris Barnes, Chauncey Manac, Tyler Clark and Chad Clay) who want to visit other schools despite making a public pledge to the Bulldogs.
