Wheeler (Marietta, Ga.) rising senior Elijah Staley might be the first recruit to announce his college choice on Vine.
Staley, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound quarterback, narrowed his list of potential schools to Miami, Mississippi State and Virginia. (He initially committed to Vanderbilt, but reopened his recruitment after the Commodores football staff told him he couldn’t play college basketball.)
First, Staley took 6 seconds to eliminate Virginia.
Thirty minutes later — more than enough time to build the suspense among the Miami and MSU faithful on Twitter — Staley revealed his choice, with a nod to LeBron.
“So if you all must know, me, Elijah Staley, will be taking my talents to…Stark Vegas.
Yep, I’m going to Mississippi State.”
Here are more than six seconds of Staley in action.
