Kurt Freitag, one of the state’s top college football prospects at tight end, announced his four finalists.
Freitag will pick between Alabama, Florida, Florida State and Miami. The 6-foot-3, 245-pounder plays for Buford, the four-time defending Georgia Class AA state champion.
Freitag will announce his college decision after one of the biggest “border war” high school football games of the season. On Sept. 10, Buford will play against Yulee, Fla., which features tailback Derrick Henry, who committed to UGA at Dawg Night. Henry is a candidate to be the Florida’s No. 1 prospect for 2013 (Georgia’s No. 1 for 2013 is Grayson defensive end Robert Nkemdiche in a landslide).
Back to Freitag: He’s one of around 10 seniors from Buford projected to sign with major colleges. The group also includes two players who are a candidates to be the best at their respective football positions — linebacker Dillon Lee (committed to Alabama) and offensive tackle Vadal Alexander (LSU, Alabama and Auburn are leaders). Alexander told the AJC on Saturday that he will likely wait until the middle of his senior season or after it to announce his college choice.
