What will Greg Reid do on Tuesday night?

The state and (gulp) nation awaits, as Reid has transformed himself into arguably the county’s “hottest” college football prospect over the last month.

Reid, the AJC’s Player of the Year, will choose between Alabama, Florida State and Georgia between 6-8 p.m. on a local radio station that also broadcasts over the Internet.

Love him or hate him, Reid is nothing short of greatness on the football field. He is considered the rarest of prospects, someone who has the potential to improve a college team’s football fortunes from the very moment he arrives on campus. What will Greg Reid do?

The 5-foot-8 Reid had a dominating senior season at Lowndes High. If that wasn’t convincing enough, he played in Georgia’s North-South all-star classic and scored the game’s only two touchdowns on punt returns of 89 and 77 yards. If more proof was needed, Reid won MVP honors with two interceptions in the ESPN-televised Under Armour game, rocketing his Q rating through the roof.

What will Greg Reid do? Let’s give a quick breakdown of the three finalists:

ALABAMA: All Alabama had to do was get Greg on campus, which was quite a task. He was initially supposed to go on Jan. 9, but then switched to Florida State. Greg then agreed to visit Alabama on Jan. 23, but nearly backed out at the last minute for Tennessee. However, once Reid made it to Tuscaloosa, Ala., he said he was impressed with the tough talk and NFL background of Alabama coach Nick Saban.

FLORIDA STATE: Several members of Reid’s family want him to play closer to home, and Tallahassee is only 85 miles away. However; it appears that Greg’s biggest allure to Florida State is an opportunity to compete immediately for a starting position, as the team lacks depth at defensive back.

GEORGIA: There are so many things in favor of the Bulldogs, most notably that Reid told several prospects committed to Georgia that he will be joining them (then again, he could’ve told that to Alabama and FSU players, too). What also helped Georgia with Reid was the enormous positive reaction it generated throughout the South Georgia area when he said he planned to visit the Bulldogs. He likes UGA coach Mark Richt, and thinks he can be a calming influence on his life. Reid also thinks he has a shot at playing early for the Bulldogs.

What will Greg Reid do? What’s your pick? Post below and let’s see if you’re correct.

Hey Toni…a little hint for you…all national championships are “made up”. But, why quibble? Let’s see what the NCAA’s site has to say on the matter shall we? I count 17…sure not all of them are “legit”…but then NONE of them really are. Funny I don’t see Florida on there much…made up or otherwise.

Reid is a thug. He was involved in the fights in their playoff loss last year. He’ll be another PacMan Jones. Lots of money and lots of stupidity.
