Five-star running back Zamir White (5-foot-11, 195 pounds, Laurinburg, NC) is the No. 3 overall recruit in the nation according to the 247Sports Composite, and White made some waves in the recruiting world last week when he revealed his Top 4 teams to be Georgia, Alabama, Clemson, and North Carolina.
Which team is the favorite, though? It looks like White’s high school coach may have shed some light on that answer.
“If I had to say a school, I would say Georgia is on top for him,” said coach Richard Bailey in an interview with Rivals.com. The 247Sports Crystal Ball is close to agreeing with that assessment, as eight of the 18 predictions there have White going with the Bulldogs, as well.
However, 247Sports lists Clemson as the predicted favorite, with the other 10 predictions all going the way of the Tigers.
Outside of the Top 4 that he released, White has generally been quiet about his recruitment, and it’s expected that he will take plenty of time to make a decision. Whether or not other powerhouse programs will be able to get involved during that time is unknown, but there is still almost a year ahead of National Signing Day 2018.
