Fun while it lasted; 5-star LB drops UK from list

Tray Blackmon is one of the elite players in the entire country. Blackmon is an electric linebacker out of Lagrange High School in Lagrange, Ga.

He is a hard-hitting, intense and game changing player who keeps both the crowd and opposing team on their toes all night long. Blackmon has gained attention from the top programs across the country, but now has his list narrowed to four and is ready to name a leader.

"My top four are Florida State, Auburn, Georgia and LSU" said Tray Blackmon.

"I will visit all four of those schools either officially or unofficially in the next few weeks. I have already been to Florida State when they played Clemson and Georgia when they played LSU. I plan to be at Auburn this weekend for their game, and then go check out LSU in the next couple of weeks."

Out of Blackmon's top four, is he ready to name a leader?

"Yes sir. Georgia is my leader."

Why does Blackmon have Georgia in the lead?

"I have always been interested in Georgia. I was there this weekend and my trip went great. I got to see the campus, talk to Coach Richt, Coach Garner, and some of the players. The game was awesome, the crowd was so loud, and the atmosphere was just unbelievable."

Blackmon has interest in these four programs for these common reasons…

"I have interest in these four schools because of the coaching staff, the tradition, the style of defense they play, and they all put players in the NFL."

Tray Blackmon is a hard-hitting linebacker that could either stay at linebacker or move to safety on the next level. He has numerous sacks and knockouts this season and has helped lead the Grangers of Lagrange to a 6-0 record and number one state ranking in AAA.

Mr. Blackmon will be on the Plains this weekend for an unofficial visit with the Auburn Tigers. He then looks to visit the Bayou and check out defending BCS Champion LSU in the next couple of weeks. After that, he has an official visit with Georgia set up in the near future.
