Which college will Westlake High’s Marcus Thornton select? His finalists are Georgia Tech, UGA, Alabama and Texas.

YOU MAKE THE PICK. Please post your selection below, along with your reasons for your selection. We’re taking names, and we’ll see who knows what they are talking about later today

What do I think? I think it’s very hard to get a read on Marcus Thornton, who — to his credit — has kept a low profile as possible while living large. Out of the four finalists, Thornton has the longest friendship with Alabama coach Anthony Grant, who recruited him at VCI. What about Texas? I never thought they had a chance because of distance. But Thornton had a tremendous visit to Texas, and said that distance would not be a factor in his college decision. I would label the Longhorns as the “darkhorse,” therefore be warned.

The one thing I keep coming back to is Thornton’s close relationship to his family and friends. He has developed a wonderful support group around Atlanta. Why on Earth leave it? That why I think it will come down to Georgia Tech vs. UGA.

Who will win? Make your prediction below.

I think it will be UGA because he will have the opportunity to play with two players who could have been in the NBA Draft. They will give him the best opportunity to go far into the NCAA Tourney.

Yeah, I think Tech or UGA would be best for him. Obviously having to maybe sit a year at Tech should weigh heavy on Thornton. So should the fact that although Hewitt recruits well, he somehow has left his once seemingly strong coaching abilities behind. Truly, I think Fox is the best X’s and O’s option out there and provides Thornton with a chance to make a name for himself and stand out while maximizing his potential. Clearly he’ll get a shot at the NBA if he has the skills and will also get attention from scouts who will be watching and drafting Thompkins and Leslie.
