Talented defensive lineman plans on staying true to his word and Georgia Tech.
Lanier Still a Hot Commodity
Fast forward two and a half months and the Emanuel County Institute star still feels just as strongly about giving his word to the Yellow Jackets coaching staff.
"I am definitely going to Georgia Tech," Lanier said Tuesday. "That's where I want to go."
Despite the fact that the 6-2, 344-pounder has let it be known that he is set to become a Yellow Jacket, that hasn't stopped several schools in the southeast from continuing to recruit for his services.
"Yes and no," Lanier said when asked if schools backed off from recruiting him. "There are a few schools that stopped but others haven't. Georgia still wants me to come visit and Ole Miss and Florida sent coaches to my school not too long ago but I had already gone home for the day."
Outside of recruiting, Lanier says that he and his teammates have been lifting a lot of weights with the intent on getting bigger and stronger for the upcoming season.
As for the summer, Lanier has a general outline of his plans.
"I think I am going to go to a camp for offensive lineman in North Georgia," Lanier said. "Then I am going to Georgia Tech's camp on June 14th. The coaches said they want me to help recruit while I am there so I want to do that."
