- UPDATE: Tarvarus McFadden committed to FSU over UGA on Friday.
It would be an upset in recruiting, but UGA may get some good news out of the state of Florida before the Bulldogs play the Florida Gators.
Tarvarus McFadden, a 5-star defensive back from Plantation, Fla., will announce his college decision between FSU and UGA on Friday.
McFadden told 247sports this week that it’s still a tie between his two favorite schools.
But FSU appears to have inside position. The Seminoles are the heavy favorite in the 247sports’ Crystal Ball predictions with 79 percent of the votes, with UGA next at 15 percent.
Even if McFadden picks FSU as expected, UGA may still have a chance because he still plans to take an official visit with the Bulldogs.
Two of McFadden’s former high school teammates, running back Sony Michel and wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie, play for UGA.
