"I get stuff from Clemson, Auburn, Louisville, Arizona State, Colorado State and Georgia Tech. Right now I like Georgia, Georgia Tech, Auburn, Clemson and South Carolina. Georgia Tech is my favorite school," Dion Armstrong said.
The Jackets made a big impression on previous visits to the Flats by Armstrong.
"It's close to home and I've always loved them since I've been there a couple of times."
What stands out about the other four programs in early contention?
Georgia: "It's just the atmosphere. When you see them practice, it just makes you want to get out there."
Auburn: "They play the best players, no matter what size they are."
Clemson: "They've just steadily improved their program and are going to be one of the top contenders in a year or so."
South Carolina: "I like Steve Spurrier a lot and he's turned the program into a real good one up there."
When it comes time to pick a school, Dion will be looking for a few specific things in the team of his choice.
"I want a place with a high graduation rate of course. I want to get in and play early and go to a place where I can win some big games."
Peach County won the AAA title in '05 and Armstrong knows the Trojans will now have a bullseye on their back as they go forward.
"I just want to get better and make the best grades I can. I think we can replace some of the guys we lost and hopefully compete for the championship again."
