Georgia LB names 2 Leaders

<b>Jae Thaxton</b> has a slew of offers, but he has narrowed his list of favorites to 5, and he has two leaders among them.

Jae Thaxton is one of the top linebacker prospects in the state of Georgia this year. He battled injuries as a junior, but looks to be healthy this season, and that's bad news for Hart County opponents. Thaxton has held at two leaders for a good portion of the summer. Has anything changed?

"No, Florida State and Georgia are still my two leaders," said Thaxton. "My Top 5 teams are probably Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Notre Dame, and LSU. All five of those have offered. I have about 15 offers overall. I only got to go to one camp this summer, and that was at Florida State. I had a great time three and learned a lot from the coaches. I got to tour the facilities and meet with Coach Bowden."

With two leaders and offers from both, does Thaxton plan on making an early decision?

"Right now, I plan on taking all of my visits. I'll take one or two during the season, then take the other three during basketball season."

On his favorites:

Georgia - "I like the campus and the coaching staff. I also like the fact that it's close to home."

Florida State - "I can't really put my thumb on it; I just like it there. I also have about 12 family members in Bainbridge, which is only about 45 minutes from Tallahassee."

"I'll choose whichever school fits me the best."
