Rashan Gary Comments After SEC Tour

BamaMag.com spoke briefly with the mother of Rashan Gary, the top prospect in the class of 2016, about the factors his camp is searching for in a university following a trio of SEC visits.

Scout.com five-star defensive lineman and No. 1 class of 2016 overall prospect in the country, Rashan Gary (Paramus Catholic HS, NJ) and his Mother, Jennifer Coney, visited a trio of SEC Western Division schools recently.

Alabama, Auburn and Ole Miss were part of the tour. Ms. Coney told BamaMag.com all the trips were awesome but, "We are no further along than we were when we left home but we have a better idea of what he's (Rashan) looking for and his must haves and can do with outs."

Some of the factors she would consider most important are "Family environment, great academics and academic support, good living quarters and not to be rushed away from the head coach like he's not worthy of his time."

The wish list of Rashan Gary according to his Mother includes, "He is interested in the defensive scheme and how he fits. He wants to be comfortable with his teammates, defensive line coach and coordinator and that the places he is expected to go are in close proximity because he is not going to have a car his first year and doesn't want to depend on anyone but himself for transportation. He wants to be at a place he can be happy attending if something happens and football God forbid is taken away."
