Who leads?

"Florida and Georgia are both No. 1. Clemson is No. 2."

He added, "Georgia, I've always been a fan of them. I went down to Florida -- I was impressed by the coaches, players and environment.

"That's pretty much the same thing with Georgia, for Clemson. I've been watching since I was smaller. The tradition of running down the hill and defensive ends."

As a junior, Riles had 53 tackles and six sacks.
