Jerry Mathis of Rockdale HS in Conyers has verballed to Samford via his Facebook page. "
“I felt that it was a good move for me and it was the best opportunity for me as far as football and education,” Mathis said. “I’m really looking forward to the upcoming season to face the reigning champions the Auburn Tigers. I was looking into Georgia State but their defensive line filled. The coaches there really wanted me but I guess their timing was a little off. But I feel I made the right decision.”
