Hannah: Decision Day Set

Continuing with the trend followed by fellow in-state recruits Toney Baker and Cameron Sexton, Jonathan Hannah of Hope Mills (N.C.) South View has decided against narrowing his list of favorites down to three. However, the <i>Scout.com</i> four-star tight end was able to establish an announcement date.

"I'm just going to leave it where it is and just announce on the 24th [of January]," stated Hannah. "North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, Penn State, Florida State and N.C. State. I will announce from those six."

Hannah visits South Carolina this weekend, and N.C. State the weekend after, before the big decision day. Of his final six, the 6-foot-5, 255-pounder has only visited North Carolina and Virginia Tech.

Of his official trip to Chapel Hill last week, Hannah told Inside Carolina, "I tranked as one of the best ones. I got to talk to the players. I got to know the coaches a little better then I have known them. It was really good visit."

He has unofficially visited each of his favorites in some capacity.

With less then two weeks before making his decision, Hannah broke down what he likes about his contending schools.

"North Carolina, I like their early playing time at tight end and just everything they have going on.

"[N.C.] State, I love Coach [Chuck] Amato and his staff and playing behind T.J. Williams I think will only make me a better person.

"Penn State, nothing but tradition and they also look good with early playing time.

"Florida State, would be a dream come true for me to play there. [It's] just a great football town to be around.

"Virginia Tech, I like the fact that I could be a part of a great recruiting class they've got together and to come in and help impact a team that will be very good again this year.

"South Carolina, Steve Spurrier will turn them into a team that will compete week in and week out in the SEC. I'd be honored to play for him."

Hannah is rated as the 5th tight end in the nation and 9th overall player in North Carolina by Scout.com.
