Where in the world will Mecole Hardman Jr. sign? 

It’s a question seven schools in particular would love to know the answer to. Hardman Jr. took to Twitter and announced a final list of schools he’s considering. The Georgia native has narrowed his focus down to Ohio State, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Michigan, Alabama, and Clemson. 

Considered the No. 11 player in the country by Rivals.com, the 5-star prospect stars on both side of the ball for his high school program. 

Hardman Jr. is dynamic as a rusher, receiver, and returner. There’s no question he will be given the opportunity to impact on special teams. However, his best position longterm could ultimately be at corner. 

The 5’10", 171-pound athlete has visited both Michigan and Ohio State officially. He will take a trip to Tuscaloosa to check out Alabama on Jan. 22. Hardman Jr. could opt to visit another school officially on Jan. 29 — the last weekend before National Signing Day on Feb. 3.
