"I'm looking at Florida, Michigan, USC, Georgia and Georgia Tech. I'd probably say Florida is the leader because they recruit me the hardest. My mom is in love with it. I don't really know why but she's in love with it probably more than I am. She really likes the coaching staff," Jamar Hornsby said.
What stands out about the other schools on his list?
Michigan: "I have a chance to come in and wear that #1 jersey and start up there."
USC: "They say I can come in and play right away. It's a pass offense and I like that."
Georgia: "I'm from Georgia so I always have to keep them on the list."
Georgia Tech: "I've got to hang out with the players and I like the atmosphere."
What is Jamar's reaction to being awarded 5-star status by Scout.com?
"I'm actually surprised about it. I was at work when it came out and just about every coach in the country started text messaging me out of the blue and congratulating me on getting 5-stars and all of that."
The Jacksonville star will visit his favorite school again at the end of this month.
"I'm going to go down to Florida on 23rd for like another junior day or something. I'm supposed to be going to Georgia with Justin Williams too but I have to talk to him about that."
