Kim's mind made up

Scout 300 offensive lineman visited his two finalists in the last few weeks and he is now set to announce his decision Thursday...

Will it be Auburn or Georgia for Kaleb Kim?

He will let everyone know on Thursday a little after 3:00pm ET after school. The four-star offensive guard out of Hoschton (Ga.) Mill Creek is ready to end the recruiting process.

"I feel so blessed to have reached this point," said Kim. "It is definitely a relief as well and I feel strongly about my decision."

That's right, he said he feels "strongly" about his decision. His mind is made up. He knows what school he is going to now.

Kim is coming off another visit to Auburn, where he watched the Tigers' spring game Saturday. He has visited there numerous times and he the people there stand out to him more than anything.

"At Auburn, I really like the coaches," said Kim. "Coach [J.B.] Grimes (Offensive line) gets after it and he is also a good man who seems like he treats his players well. Coach [Gus] Malzahn (Headcoach) has great values as a coach. I also like the facilities and campus there."

It is very similar with Georgia, the other finalist for Kim. The only real difference is, the distance from his home.

"At UGA, I like the coaches also. I have been able to talk with Coach [Will] Friend (Offensive line) a good bit and he is a great coach. I've enjoyed talking to him. Georgia is also on about 45 minutes away from my house, so it would be very easy to get home whenever I needed to. That is a biggie for me."

With the 6-foot-4, 281 pound junior announcing his decision this week, most would think he just came to his decision over the weekend. That is not the case though.

He was leaning heavily towards one school early in the month.

"After my trip to Georgia (April 2), I was ready [to make decision] in my mind," said Kim. "I just wanted to finalize a few things and make peace with my decision."

That has been done and Kim is now set to announce his decision at Mill Creek High School with family, high school coaches, and media present.

Kim is the No. 14-ranked offensive guard in the country on Scout.
