UGA Recruiting Daily Thread
TODAY’S FEATURED PROSPECT: Jaelyn Lay
Jaelyn Lay is a 6-6 220-pound athlete from Riverdale High School in Riverdale Georgia. According to 247 Sports, he ranks as a three-star and the No. 93 wide receiver in the country. Some sites list him as a tight end others wide receiver, either way, this big bodied player has a bright future ahead of him. Lay has 22 offers right now, but expect more to come as camps and football season gets closer. He holds offers from Georgia, Clemson, Miami, Georgia Tech, and then some lower tier schools. The latest coming from Miami on February 2, 2018. I spoke with Lay about his recruitment to see how it was going.
He may not have the Bulldogs in his top four right now, but it’s early and anything could happen with him. Lay seems open to all options and just wants to find where he fits best.
Jaelyn Lay Interview:
Q: How is the overall recruiting process going for you?
A: “The recruiting process is good.”
Q: What schools are in the running where you’ll take your official visits?
A: “As far as official visits I can’t give a decision now because my recruitment is open to all.”
Q: What do you think of Georgia?
A: “Georgia is a good program. They had a good season last year and they ended up with the #1 recruiting class in 2018 and that was expected also with the commitment flips and stuff was too.”
Q: How hard are they recruiting you? And what are some things they are telling you?
A: “As far as recruiting “hard” I don’t know how to describe it. Hard as in keeping in contact every week, mail things like that not as much as it may be a text every week after or so. So not as much as like the big named people.”
Q: Are any of the current commits for Georgia in contact with you? If so who?
A: “I’m not in contact with any Georgia commits but my teammate is. Some of my friends at different schools are friends with Jadon Haslewood or on the Cam Newton 7v7 team with him and they know other commits.”
Q: What are the key factors that will go into your decision?
A: “Key factors are how many people they have in my position, how many people they’re recruiting in the same position and if they offer my major.”
Q: If you could go to school anywhere regardless of offers you have now where would you choose to go?
A: “To be honest any school that would accept me outside of football but with football any school that knows I can produce in their program.”
Q: I know you say your recruiting is wide open but do you have any top schools?
“Right now I see Clemson, Ole Miss, Iowa State and Georgia Tech.”
