I saw  he's announcing this afternoon but not sure what time. Does anyone know when? Or if it's being aired somewhere? Would really like to get this kid, at 6'3" he's a beast.

I always thought it was an tOSU vs Tenn for his services but seems like he's been trending toward Georgia as of late. Won't hold my breath.

At this point it would be surprising if he picks OSU. And assuming he doesn't pick them, I'd rather see him choose Georgia than Tennessee.

At what point did the good guys lose traction?

Over the summer. My memory is little hazy, but I believe he wanted to commit on his birthday and didn't, and moved things back. He seemed to be sold personally on OSU while his parents were not as high on OSU. After the Opening, his family kinda dialed things back and weren't really talking to the media about his recruitment. And although his folks said it would ultimately be his decision to make, they seemed to want him to check out other schools before committing anywhere.

Thank you for the update. Maybe there will still be a chance.

Of course that comment could be used with any fan base that didn't get the guy they wanted

Honestly, if it is UGA, it feels like a compromise between all the parties. At one point, he was very high on OSU, and parents preferred Tennessee. I think that UGA is a neutral pick, and that all three of them were pretty even in his eyes, but ultimately, I think the allure of the SEC still means a lot, especially for kids in its footprint.

UGA has a pretty good WR pipeline to the NFL don't they? I know AJ Green went there, but I think there are a few others as well as of late.
