The best cornerback in the country might be residing in northern Georgia this season and, while Kennesaw (Ga.) Harrison star Paul Oliver seemed to be ready to make an early decision last month, things have changed.
“I was thinking about deciding even as early as this month between Georgia and Texas, but I think I’m going to wait now,” said the 6-foot, 185-pounder. “A lot of other schools have made me think.”
Oliver still lists the Bulldogs and Longhorns as his leaders, but teams like Florida State, Florida, Miami, Maryland, South Carolina and Clemson have made him think twice.
“I’m not going to any camps this summer, but I’d like to see some other schools on official visits,” he said. “I think I’m going to wait until after my senior season now and take all five officials.”
Oliver had nine interceptions as a junior and made 50 tackles. He took back two picks for touchdowns and returned four punts for scores as well. On offense, he had 30 catches for 800 yards and nine scores. Oliver is the top cornerback in Georgia and is quickly rising in the minds of recruiters to the point where some consider him to be the top corner in the nation this year.
