5-11, 180, 4.5
Mays High School
"Oh, I still like Auburn, Clemson, Arkansas, Michigan and Vanderbilt. All of them have offered me except Michigan," Ramon McElrathbey said in a recent interview with Scout.com.
In his last update, McElrathbey said Auburn was now his favorite. Is that still true?
"No, I don't have a leader now. Auburn is crunching scholarships right now and they are just kind of wanting me to wait until I commit. There are also some issues with guys at my position too."
What stands out about the 5 schools still in consideration?
Auburn: "I like the stability and the academics."
Clemson: "I checked out Coach Bowden's contract and he has a 4 million dollar buyout so that's good. I like the town also."
Arkansas: "I like the college feel of the area."
Michigan: "I like the tradition up there. They send me a lot of letters."
Vanderbilt: "I love their academics and if you go there you can be a millionaire or anything you want."
McElrathbey has two official visits scheduled for the end of the year.
"I go to Clemson and Arkansas sometime in December, but I don't remember the dates."
What does he want most in a school?
"I want a stable coaching situation. If I go somewhere, I want to have the same coaches the entire time."
Mays High School had a tough year this season.
"We finished 5-5 and just out of the playoffs. I'm getting ready for basketball and track season right now."
