"I like Florida, Georgia, Virginia, Michigan, Clemson and Miami," said Hand. "Florida is pretty close to home and I like the coaches. Florida is a school that a like quite a bit. I visited Georgia for the South Carolina game and I really enjoyed it. I have family nearby Athens and they need offensive linemen. I really like the coaches at Virginia and Miami. I went to Clemson over the summer and that is a pretty place to live. Michigan is a team I grew up rooting for. They were always my favorite. Right now, I am just open."
