Pumpkins have taken over recruiting

First it was picking a hat up and putting on your head to signal where you were going spend the next four years playing your football. But one high school player in the Dirty South has decided to take a different way to announce his college commitment.

Dontavius Jackson (right), a running back from Georgia, is scheduled to make his college announcement on Halloween night, but not by picking a hat or a shirt, but by picking a carved pumpkin. Jackson is down to Clemson, Georgia and LSU.

"One of the coaches’ wives carves pumpkins,” Jackson said. “I’ll be choosing a pumpkin.”
The logo or mascot of Jackson’s finalists will be carved into the three pumpkins, according to a Atlanta Journal Constitution story.

Wow, that is a new one, I can not wait for a fan of cars to make his college choice by picking a car and driving off. You can not help but love college recruiting.
