Elbert County ATH Mecole Hardman said on Twitter than he's narrowed his list of college destinations to seven schools: Ohio State, Florida, Clemson, Alabama, Tennessee, Michigan and Georgia.
The Bulldogs are still considered the favorites to land Hardman, but late pressure from Ohio State and Alabama make his signing anything but certain.
“This process has been hard, but I have to make a decision soon,” Hardman tweeted. “These are the schools I will be making my final decision from, and I want to thank all the schools and coaches that have blessed my to have the opportunity to play at their school.
Dawg Post can report that Elbert County is preparing an early-morning Signing Day ceremony in which Hardman will announce his college decision.
