MARIETTA, Ga. - Four years ago, Georgia offered a scholarship to Grayson linebacker Owen Pappoe. He was an 8th grader then.
Tuesday, had to choose between yelling "Go Dawgs!" or "War Eagle!"
Pappoe is one of four Grayson Rams making their college choice from Sports & Social at The Battery live on FOX 5.
FOX 5 contributor and 247 Sports recruiting expert Rusty Mansell joined host Justin Felder Tuesday afternoon as some of the top-rated athletes in the state make their college choices in front of friends, family and passionate college fans.
First up, 6-6 offensive lineman Wanya Morris announced his decision where to play his college ball. He was down to Tennessee and Auburn, but in the end the Volunteers won out.
Joining Morris was his Grayson teammate Kevin Harris, who starred at defensive end for the Rams. Harris had Miami, Alabama, and LSU high on his list, but at the end of the day, he yelled "Roll Tide."
An hour later, Pappoe and teammate Kenyatta Watson will choose their schools.
Watson looks like a lock to head to Texas to play for the Longhorns, but the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame was still in the mix up to the last minute when he decided to head to Austin.
Pappoe was down to his home state Bulldogs and the Auburn Tigers. The Dawgs were hoping to add Pappoe to an already strong 2019 recruiting class which includes Clinch County linebacker Trezmen Marshall who picked Georgia over Alabama just last week. But in the end, Pappoe said he and his family really like what the Tigers program offered him.
