Four-star defensive Nathan Pickering has some time before he has to make any sort of commitment in his recruitment. However, he has already dropped a top five list and now he has a trio of schools standing out to him as he told 247Sports.
“‘Bama, LSU and Florida,” he said.
However, he did say that he would possibly release another top five list since he had Mississippi State on his original and now a lot of that staff is at Florida. He mentioned that he is a huge fan of coach Dan Mullen and that he’s going to make sure Florida is one of his top schools.
