McEachern High School
Powder Springs, Georgia
The youngster from McEachern says, "There's a 93% chance that I'll commit to Clemson. The coaching staff there says they really need someone like me to make a big impact on their program. They have a good academic program and a good athletic program there as well.
"I think it's exciting to watch them play and it looks like a place that I'd want to go to for school. Coach (Ron) West (DLs) has emphasized to me that I'll be a huge impact player when I go up to Clemson. It's also only about a 2 1/2 hour drive from my house.
"Duke falls in as my number two school. They have a great football program, and one of the main things for me throughout this whole process is academics. They are one of the best places to get a college degree from. They have some solid academics there. It's also close to home as well and I'm pretty excited for my official visit.
"Stanford has definitely dropped as my leader. I'm not receiving any mail from them lately and my mom says that it's just too far away from Georgia."
Other offers include Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, Maryland and Kentucky.
