When it came to deciding how he would announce the college of his choice, Mitchell County's Justin Scott-Wesley decided to go against the proverbial grain.
So, following Saturday's final in the 200-meter dash at the state track championships in Jefferson, Scott-Wesley will do just that.
No, there won't be any hats placed strategically on a table, no hidden shirt routine or anything like that.
Instead, Scott-Wesley has it all figured out.
The public address announcer will address the crowd, and right after his name is announced, Scott-Wesley will signal the press box that there's something he'd like to say.
At that moment, the former Stanford commitment will let everyone know where he plans on playing his college ball.
"I was just talking about it with some friends, asking what they would do and they asked 'Why don't you do it at the state track meet?'" Scott-Wesley said Monday night in an interview with UGASports. "So I went back, talked it over with my folks and they said why not? Nobody else had ever done it before, so that's what I'm going to do."
Scott had 43 catches for 846 yards and 10 touchdowns at receiver last year while scoring two touchdowns returning punts and adding another one on a kick-off return, will choose between Georgia, Georgia Tech, East Carolina, Louisville, Maryland, South Carolina, Stanford, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest. On defense, he had 49 tackles and four interceptions.
The speedster said coaches at his perspective school are already aware of his decision.
Scott-Wesley added he will carry a message to the other recruits also considering his future school.
"I'm just going to let them know - if the school I'm picking is the one they're considering, too - that they need to get on board," Scott-Wesley said. "I feel like one of the best, the school I'm committing is one of the best, so they need to get on."
