Bearcats lead for Georgia LB

Atlanta Grady inside linebacker John Law is not anywhere near ready to pick a school, but he said Wednesday night a few programs have started to emerge from the pack.
One in particular.
"Cincinnati is leading," Law told "I like the team. I like the coaches. I like the school. They're trying to build a tradition. They've been telling me they want me. They like my film. They say I can run and make plays. I like the defense they run. It's similar to what we run in high school."
The 5-feet-11, 227-pound Law will make his first visit to Cincinnati for an unofficial next week.
"They're recruiting me the hardest out of the bunch," Law said. "Them and Georgia State."
After the Bearcats, Law said he would put Southern Miss at No. 2.
All told, Law claims nine offers, including four from FBS programs. Additionally, he said he is hearing from Kentucky and Vanderbilt.
"I think I'm taking officials to Southern Miss, UAB and Cincinnati," Law said. "I also want to check out Georgia Southern. I'm trying to figure out if I want to go to Georgia State or not. I've been there a couple times for unofficials. I'm trying to get my schedule together when I have time."
When might a final decision come?
"I really don't have a timeline," Law said.
