Battle continues to heat up for Top 247 edge CJ May


NASHVILLE — Highland Home (Ala.) high school Top 247 edge-rusher CJ May continues to inch closer to a second and final decision. The former Notre Dame commit opened up his process and is now focused on other contenders.

Ole Miss, Auburn, Louisville, Vanderbilt, Alabama, Mississippi State and others all remain in contention. So, where will he end up?

Here is the latest from the Under Amour next camp in Nashville.

On his official visit schedule: “As of right now, I have two official visits setup to Louisville (May 31) and Vanderbilt (June 7). I plan on possibly setting two more in June, but as of right now I have no ideal what I plan to setup.”

On his interest in Louisville: “It’s a great city and a great place. The coaching staff is amazing. I have nothing bad to say about that coaching staff, from coach Brohm all the way to coach Brady. It’s a really great place. It’s obvious that coach Hagens is developing great players. I think I could be one of those players he develops if I was to take my talents to Louisville.”

On his interest in Vanderbilt: “There is a lot that goes into Vanderbilt. They have a nice degree. Football isn’t forever. If I do decide to take that path and go to Vanderbilt, let’s say I don’t make it to the NFL, I’ll have a life after football with a Vanderbilt degree. It holds a lot of power in today’s world. I think that would be a great choice for me. Coach Lea does a great job as a head coach. Coach Haye does a great job with the defensive line. The whole staff loves to reach out to me and I love them for that.”

On his interest in Ole Miss: “That is another great place. It’s a country town. With me being from the country, I fit in a good bit there. I love the coaches. Me and coach Joyner have been close since my freshman year in high school. He’s always believed in me. He told me that back then until now. He’s proud of my growth, both physical and mental. He said he loves it. Coach Kiffin is a great coach. You have to love that guy there.”

On his interest in Auburn: “The reason I love Auburn is because I’ve been an Auburn fan since I could walk. I’ve always been an Auburn fan. I feel like it’s a great opportunity to play for a school that you’re a fan of for years. My family being up there now, it definitely hits home for me to play at Auburn. Me and coach Alger have created a strong relationship out there. He tells me I have a few things I need to work on, but that’s no big deal. That’s dedication and hard work that’ll get me there. I have nothing bad to say about Auburn. Coach Freeze and all of those guys, they do a great job recruiting me. Even after coach Garrett left, which set me back on Auburn, but besides that it’s been a great time with that coaching staff.”

On a potential timeline for a decision: “I want to do it before my senior season, but I want to take my official visits and a few in-season. It just depends on how the official visits go in June. If I do decide, it’ll be around July 4 or sometime before the season.”
