Georgia Tech is the frontrunner with Jefferson County’s B.J. Bostic, one of the Southeast’s top “athletes.”
But that could change at any moment with Bostic, who is making an unofficial visit this weekend to Florida. Bostic has offers from Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, UCLA, Connecticut, Central Florida, Kentucky, Maryland. He is also getting heavy interest from Florida, UGA, Michigan and West Virginia.
“Georgia Tech is still my No. 1, and Mississippi State is right there behind them,” Bostic told the AJC. “And all the other schools are pretty much even.”
What if Florida offers? “If Florida offered me, they might move out front. I’m supposed to talk with [Urban Meyer] later tonight or Saturday after the Florida spring game. They haven’t offered yet. But if they do, I just … don’t know.”
North Gwinnett lineman JaWuan James and Henry County wide receiver Markeith Ambles are some of the other top Georgia prospects visiting Florida this week.
The 5-foot-10, 165-pound Bostic runs the 40-yard dash in 4.39 seconds. He is being recruited at defensive back and wide receiver. Bostic’s cousin, Jefferson County defensive end Chris Crenshaw, signed with Georgia Tech in February.
