He already signed with Georgia months ago, before he seriously competed in the 100m and blew up in the media (here's a November 2018 article about Georgia's recruits: https://georgiadogs.com/news/2018/11...r-history.aspx). Maybe those Texas schools weren't recruiting him with a full-ride offer back then.

Thanks for the link. It looks like he's got a buddy from his HS team also headed to UGA.

Here's an interesting article concerning Boling. The NY Post states he never competed n a 100m race before his senior year of HS. I no longer have a subscription to Milesplit so I wasn't able to verify.

Georgia winning the men's team title at the NCAA D1 championships in 2018 probably had something to do with his decision.

Texas Tech, A&M, and UT placed 5th, 7th, and 25th: https://www.ncaa.com/sites/default/f...als/scores.htm

Fireworks at the NCAA championships last night!

Divine Oduduru of Texas Tech won the men's 100m/200m double in 9.86 and 19.73, tying the fastest 100m in the world so far this year. Behind him in the 100m were Oregon's Cravon Gillespie in 9.93, and Florida's Hakim Sani Brown in 9.97 which is a new national record for Japan.

Grant Holloway of Florida ran 12.98 to break Renaldo Nehemiah's NCAA record of 13.00 which had been standing since 1979. Daniel Roberts of Kentucky ran 13.00 to tie the old record.

Holloway also helped Florida win the 4x100 in 39.97, the first NCAA sub-38 ever. That time would have won a medal at every Olympics except 2016.

After those two records, Holloway anchored the 4x400 with a sub-44 split to bring Florida to second place in 2:59.60, behind Texas A&M's 2:59.05. In any given year, usually less than 10 countries have run below 3 minutes.

OMG. This is huuuuge. 10.75 by the LSU freshman Sha'Carri Richardson to win the NCAA women's 100m -- that's the fastest in the world since 2017, broke the 30-year-old NCAA record, broke the under-20 world record which stood since 1977, and would have matched or beat the gold-medal time at every Olympics except 1988. If she stays injury-free she'll be the favorite to win the gold medal next year in Tokyo.
