Other schools in Hardman’s Top 10 include Miami, Alabama, Ole Miss, Florida, Auburn, Oklahoma, Stanford, Michigan, and Tennessee.
In the video, Hardman walks by the flag of each school as he announces his Top 10. He then says “My new home will be decided soon. Get ready for the next commitment.”
According to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, Mecole Hardman is the No. 1 ranked athlete in the country, the No. 3 recruit in Georgia, and the No. 27 overall recruit.
Hardman (5-10, 175, 4.42) plays for Elbert County High School in Elberton, Georgia. His primary recruiter for the Dawgs is defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt.
The Dawgs appear to be in good shape for Hardman, who will reportedly make a silent commitment to his school of choice and then announced his decision on signing day.
