Three powerhouse programs lead for one of the state’s 2017 prospects.
Tray Bishop, an unranked athlete at Terrell County, told the AJC on Tuesday that Auburn, Florida State and UGA — in that particular order — currently lead.
But it’s clear Auburn is the school to beat.
“I like how everything is done there,” Bishop told the AJC. “I like the coaches’ personalities, and everything is the same every time I’ve gone there. Nothing changes. The coaches have great, positive attitudes. It just felt good.”
The 6-foot-3, 185-pounder attended Auburn’s prospect came in June and received an offer the same day. He’s taken three other visits to Auburn since then. Bishop, who plays quarterback at Terrell County, says the Tigers are recruiting him as a wide receiver.
However, the chance to take snaps under center remains a possibility.
“(Auburn coach Gus Malzahn) likes me at receiver, but if I want to play quarterback he’ll give me a shot at it,” Bishop said.
What of his other two schools?
Bishop admits to the AJC that FSU is his No. 2 school simply because he hasn’t visited the campus as much as Auburn. As for UGA, he offered little feedback, though he says the Bulldogs don’t have much ground to make up. He picked up an offer in July.
Bishop says he will be in attendance for the Louisville-Auburn game on Saturday here in Atlanta. As for the fall, he plans to take unofficial visits to Alabama and UGA.
