Ray Buchanan Jr., son of the former NFL Pro Bowler, will decide between Arkansas and Ole Miss on Saturday.
The 5-foot-11, 176-pounder from Peachtree Ridge High School is scheduled to announce his college decision live on GPB during the telecast of the Corky Kell Classic at the Georgia Dome. It will be televised live around 6:30-7 p.m. and you can click on this link to watch it live.
Like his famous father, Buchanan plays defensive back. The elder Buchanan played college football at Louisville and then in the NFL for 12 seasons, including from 1997-2003 for the Atlanta Falcons. Buchanan famously exchanged trash talk with Shannon Sharpe before Super Bowl XXXIII against the Denver Broncos.
Back to Junior. Here’s what he likes about finalist No. 1, Arkansas: “I have a good relationship with the coaches. I’ve had a lot of time to get to know them since they were the first school to offer me, which really caught my eye.”
Junior on Ole Miss: “They are also recruiting me as a cornerback. I really like their football program, and I visited this summer. I got to meet with [head coach Houston Nutt], and I like how he runs things down there. It’s a pretty quiet college town, and that’s another reason why I like them.”
