    No. 1 recruit Rashan Gary reveals his decision date and the top teams still in the mix.

    Rashan Gary is a 6-foot-5, 293-pound defensive tackle that can anchor a defensive line and single-handedly wreak havoc on an offense. He’s an explosive, athletic freak with a quick first step and fast, strong hands.

    That’s why he’s ranked as the No. 1 player in the entire country (per 247Sports Composite), and it’s also why he’s one of the most highly sought after recruits. 

    With January approaching, and National Signing Day on Feb. 3, Gary is doing his due diligence to determine which program is the best fit for his future. He has one official visit left to schedule and is eyeing several schools in the South.

    According to ESPN recruiting analyst Tom VanHeeran, Gary told reporters at the Under Armour All-America Game media session that he’s considering visiting Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia or LSU.

    Michigan is currently considered by many to be the frontrunner for his services, but Gary didn’t tip his hat on which school he has leading. He did, however, name his top teams, which include Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss and USC.

    The Gators and Seminoles are in the mix but appear to be long shots to land the New Jersey prospect. However, an official visit could go a long way toward swaying Gary.

    Following the hiring of defensive coordinator Greg Schiano, Ohio State tried to jump back into the picture, but the Buckeyes appear to be on the outside looking in.

    Gary plans to announce his decision on National Signing Day.
