Hankins to announce on signing day

Beau Hankins (Birmingham, Ala./Jackson-Olin) will make his school decision public on national signing day.

“It will be at 11 a.m. (CT) at the school auditorium,” Hankins said. “It will be on Feb. 1st. All the hats will be on the table -- Arkansas, Penn State, Georgia Tech, Central Florida, Wake Forest, Stanford and FIU.”

Hankins has already made official visits to Arkansas, Florida International and Central Florida. It looks like he will trip to Georgia Tech this weekend, though that is not set in stone.

“I should know by Wednesday,” Hankins said. “I spoke to their coach today and told him that will be the day I decide on my visit.”

Hankins, 6-foot-1 and 230 pounds, is the No. 55 ranked inside linebacker in the nation and the No. 64 rated recruit from the state of Alabama.
