Mecole Hardman Jr., 5-star athlete prospect, picks Georgia with commitment cakes, dramatic reveal

Cam Smith, USA Today

Elbert County star Mecole Hardman Jr. was always going to wait until the last possible minute to formally pull the trigger on his college future. When he arrived at his official signing day ceremony, many were surprised that he didn’t even have in-state power Georgia as an option on the table.

That was only the first surprise in a unique ceremony where Hardman officially committed to Georgia regardless on Wednesday at Elbert County. Why was it unique? Well, when was the last time you saw a top prospect announce his future by making it seem he would choose one of five decorated cakes … then running through a personalized run-thru sign in full Georgia gear?
