Mercole Hardman, the nation’s No. 2-rated athlete, told the AJC this week that he wouldn’t take official visits to UGA and Tennessee, even though the two SEC schools are his co-leaders.

Why not? Because the 4-star athlete from Elbert County has visited UGA and Tennessee dozens of times on unofficial visits.

Hardman was at UGA yet another time on Saturday, making an unofficial visit, per 247sports.com’s Rusty Mansell.

After rumors began circulating that Hardman was in Athens to make a “secret commitment” to UGA, he got on social media to set the record straight.
