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.

So you play for Florida, huh? If not, stfu dude. YOU have not won anything. You live vicariously through 20 year old boys and have a man-crush on your QB. You have as much class as your coach. Go to bed little guy.

Can’t blame Reid. Would you want to waste your eligibility playing for CWM? Reid would rather play for the Senile Seminole than that incompetent bastard Martinez.

When CWM fails he blames his players. Poor CWM can still trot out that lame excuse next year. Dogs can’t close. They start fast but never get the last minute coup. UGA will have unused scholarships this year. Which is pretty damn sad.

Not sure Reid will qualify but that doesn’t mean we didn’t want/need him. Look for the dawgs to go 0-for tomorrow on undecideds.

If Richt tried to improve his coaching as much as he works on his tan or trying to keep his hair, he’d be unbeatable.

I think it’s funny that UGAY has a METROSEXUAL for a head coach!!

Well losers, I’ll just leave laughing at another let down for the puppies!!

49-10!!! TEBOW just scored again!!!

Yeah when Aaron Murray gets his ass kicked by the Gators year end and year out. Richt couldn’t coach flag football. Urban hates UGAY and who doesn’t, and he’s 100 times better than that fake coach you got. Richt’s been at UGAY almost 10 years, and still is a choke artist.

Why does Athens have so many gay bars? BECAUSE ATHENS SUCKS!!!!
