Getting The Call

This big offensive lineman is expected to make a decision this weekend.

Ellenwood, Ga.--Sometimes things take longer than expected. That is the case for big offensive lineman Jonathan Palmer from Cedar Grove High School. Hoping to make a decision sometime this week, it now appears he will wait until this weekend before deciding his fate.

"We'll sit down this weekend and talk things out," his father Roy Palmer tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "We should have a decision sometime Sunday and we'll call the school to let them know then."

Expected to choose between Auburn, Georgia Tech, Clemson and North Carolina, it appears to be a two-team race between the Tigers and Yellow Jackets although no one has thrown in the towel of yet.

"We're getting everybody's A-Game at the moment," the elder Palmer laughs. "All the schools have been through here in the last couple of days and we're expecting the Clemson coaches any minute (Thursday night)."

A four-year starter alongside another top prospect in big 6-8, 316 offensive lineman Marcus McNeill, Palmer is a player who wasn't as well known early in the recruiting process but has been hearing from other schools such as Ohio State and Notre Dame. He is a strong student who should have no problems qualifying. He plans to major in engineering when he gets to college.

Tiger Ticket Extra: Defensive tackle Brinson Harley from Russell County High in Seale will not be making his visit to Auburn this previously scheduled as the AU coaching staff appears to be looking at other prospects for its final scholarship slots prior to Wednesday's national signing day.
