Pace Academy (GA) five-star offensive guard Jamaree Salyer was dominant once again at the Atlanta Regional Opening, earning a finals invite for the second consecutive year. The mammoth 6-foot-4 320-pounder is favoring a few schools at the moment after taking some important visits.
“I’ve recent visited Ohio State and ha fun.” Salyer said. “It was my second visit up there. My favorite thing about Ohio State is how they produce guys. They are one of the best programs in the country when it comes to developing their players.”
The Georgia Bulldogs have been recruiting Salyer for years now, and they have made him a top priority in the 2018 class.
“I’ve been up to Athens a couple times as well.” Salyer said. “My last visit went the same as it usually does. I got to sit down and talk with offensive line coach Sam Pittman and head coach Kirby Smart. What stands out about coach Pittman is he’s a great recruiter. He’s good at building relationships and getting guys to want to play for him.
His former Pace Academy teammates, Andrew Thomas and Trey Blount, both signed with Georgia in the recent 2017 class.
“Those guys definitely leave it up to me of course but Trey (Blount) talks a little bit more about it.” Salyer said.
Another team high on Salyer’s list is Clemson. The Tigers have a relentless recruiting staff and are doing everything they can to land the Atlanta native.
“I visited Clemson a couple weeks ago.” Salyer said. “I like what Dabo stands for. He seems like an earnest guy and they have it all put together up there. I believe in the community up there and everything they stand for.”
If there’s one dark horse in the race for Salyer’s signature it’s Stanford.
“I was able to do everything on my visit to Stanford.” Salyer said. “We got to see the locker room the fields, the whole nine yards. I plan on going back over there for a game this fall to see the gameday atmosphere.”
This spring Salyer plans to attend multiple spring games including trips to Georgia, Ohio State, Clemson, or possible Stanford. Salyer plans to announce a top group in late May or early June, and commit after the season.
