NORCROSS, Ga. - Darius Slayton grew up an LSU fan.
He's not too attached to the Tigers, though. Darius Slayton is taking time to focus on the schools that have offered him - Georgia and Auburn to be specific. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound cornerback out of Greater Atlanta Christian is drawn to the Dawgs' potential defensive success as a result of its recent addition at coordinator.
"He's a cool dude. I like Coach (Jeremy) Pruitt," Slayton said. "I definitely think he's going to have success - regardless of who goes there. If he gets the right guys I think he's going to do magic for them."
Slayton, a rising senior on the Spartans' defense, is familiar with the Athens landscape as a Georgia native. He's also familiar with Pruitt.
