2018 QB Gerry Bohanon (Gabe Brooks / SCOUT)

4-Star Gerry Bohanon Wants to Visit Several SEC Programs

CEDAR HILL, Texas -- Gerry Bohanon, one of the top overall prospects in Arkansas, told Scout at the UnderArmour Dallas camp that he wants to visit SEC schools such as Auburn, Georgia, LSU, and Tennessee.

Gerry Bohanon has visited two Southeastern Conference programs so far this semester and wants to visit several more, he told Scout at this past weekend's UnderArmour Dallas camp at Cedar Hill High School.

The 6-foot-3, 211-pound Bohanon has visited Mississippi State and Ole Miss and said he felt good connections with the coaching staffs at both schools, which want him to play quarterback, the position he plays for Earle (Ark.) High School. Bohanon said head coach Hugh Freeze and defensive line coach Freddie Roach recruit him for the Rebels, while head coach Dan Mullen and quarterbacks coach Brett Elliott recruit him for the Bulldogs.

Now Bohanon sets his sights on more visits. AuburnGeorgiaLSU, and Tennessee are four programs that have already offered him that he pinpointed as potential visit destinations. Bohanon said he hopes to visit Auburn and Georgia this coming weekend.

He also said all four schools want him at quarterback, while home-state Arkansas is the lone school that has told him it's recruiting him as an athlete.

"They've been watching me for like three years," Bohanon said of the Hogs, who have a QB pledge from fellow in-state four-star Connor Noland. "They're just recruiting me as an athlete and will allow me to have the opportunity to play what I want."

Bohanon said if he wound up playing elsewhere, it would have to be on offense.

"I gotta stay offense," he said with a laugh. "I love the ball."

Running backs coach Tim Horton recruits Bohanon for Auburn.

"I've been going to camp there since about eighth grade," Bohanon said, "so I've actually been down there a few times, but not with the offer, so I'm going to get that experience, too."

Bohanon said offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Jim Chaney recruits him for Georgia, which he wants to visit this weekend since it's relatively close to Auburn. Since both are a considerable distance away from his hometown, he said he's trying to hit both campuses while he's in the region.

Quarterbacks coach Mike Canales recruits Bohanon for Tennessee, while running backs coach Tommie Robinson recruits him for LSU, though he noted he hears from multiple Tiger coaches. He said the coaches at Georgia, Tennessee, and LSU are telling him similar messages.

"They want me to get down there and they love my film and love how I play quarterback," Bohanon said.

Though he owns a healthy list of Power Five conference offers, Bohanon said he would like to check out a hand full of schools that have yet to offer, including FloridaFlorida StateNotre Dame, and Oklahoma.
