    When Harmon states they will take visits together, do you think he only means USC? Needless to say that is huge if Thompson comes back to OSU on an unofficial visit with Harmon, maybe BT is pulling a Mike Brewster imitation.

    I hate to say it but think he's telling us Brandon Thompson is Clemson all the way.:(

    Stow - I agree with you, they appear to be both heading to Clemson, Harmon states that. However, I just find it very interesting that Harmon wants to take a visit to OSU right after Thompson comes back. Harmon hasn't mention OSU for a long time.

    I think that is the most telling recent as to why Harmon may come to Columbus for a visit...

    I know he and Brandon Thompson were close... any chance this opens things up a little bit for Brandon? Thanks for the help.

    Harmon 'kinda' commits to Georgia

    Never mind the national television audience.
    Or that A.J. Harmon pulled on a Georgia cap and pledged to be a Bulldog.
    Or that national signing day is less than a month away.
    Forget all that and chew on this: A.J. Harmon, a one-time Clemson commitment who pledged his allegiance to Georgia on NBC on Saturday, is still not sure where he is going to college.
    "I've got a knot on my head that I can't get out right now," said the Jefferson County offensive lineman after the U.S. Army All-American game in the Alamodome.
    Some might want to rap him on the head for holding them in suspense all this time. Harmon, considered the top offensive lineman in Georgia, has held those who follow recruiting hostage for several weeks.
    "When I committed to them [Clemson] I was 100 percent," Harmon said. "I am 100 percent Georgia right now.
    "But I know it is not over until February," he said. "I hope I can make a decision by February."
    Given the history of Harmon's recruitment, a decision seems iffy. For those in need of a, reminder, here you go:
    Long identified as possibly the best prospect in the Peach State, Harmon made the combine and camp circuits and drew raves.
    At the time he appeared to be a Georgia lock. But Harmon formed a bond with Tommy Bowden and chose Clemson. Harmon still attended most of Georgia's home games, and the Bulldogs' coaching staff held a spot for him in the recruiting class.
    Saturday that spot might have been filled. Hopefully, said possible teammate Deangelo Tyson of Statesboro.
    "He is a good player and a friend of mine, and that is where I want him to go," said Tyson, another U.S. Army All-American.
    Tyson is considered the top defensive tackle in the state. But while Tyson remains a firm Georgia commitment, he has some work to do.
    Tyson said he hasn't yet gotten a qualifying score on his ACT and needs to get five points higher to do so. He will take the test two more times.
    Harmon has issues other than grades. Even in the course of a 10-minute conversation only an hour after he became Georgia's 24th commitment, the 6-foot-5, 320-pound lineman couldn't seem to convince himself he has done the right thing.
    "I was so sure of myself that I needed to go to Clemson, but it was like something just came over me and said, 'You need to go to Georgia,'?" Harmon said.
    But then Harmon said this: "I'm kinda sure about Georgia, and I am not sure at the same time."
    What is certain is that Harmon still has a decision ahead of him and there will be several interested parties trying to help him make it.
    The first thing Harmon is going to do is talk to his parents about the decision. They, and the Georgia coaching staff, knew he was going to pick UGA on Saturday. But now he has to handle the backlash and pressure.
    "I am going to ask my mom and dad, and however they say I should handle it I am going to handle it," Harmon said. "I would love to stay away from it, but I have to make sure if Georgia is the right pick for me."
    He has until Feb. 6 to think. That's national letter-of-intent day for Division

    Whatever that means....
