Jamoris Slaughter says that growing up, Michigan was his favorite team. "I guess I always liked their style," Slaughter said. "I always picked them when I played Madden. They have a great defense and I like how they blitz and zone a lot. You can really show your skills there." Although Slaughter followed Michigan, he says he parents like Notre Dame. "They have a high interest in Notre Dame..."

Jamoris Slaughter, the 6-foot-1, 180-pound cornerback/safety from Tucker (Ga.) finished his junior season with 66 tackles, four interceptions and three fumbles caused.

"I can come up and make the hits," said the Scout.com four-star prospect, also ranked as the No. 45 player in the Southeast. "I'm really aggressive and can cover the deep ball good too. I'm fast and see the whole field well.

"I want to get more picks and be more aware on the field."

Slaughter says he can bench 265 pounds, squat 330, vertical jump 33 inches and run a 4.4 forty. He also runs track, but says he'll only play football in college. Slaughter has a personal best 10.9 100m and a 49.0 400m.

He has approximately 20 scholarship offers, but favors Notre Dame, Georgia, Michigan, Tennessee, Alabama and Ohio State. Tennessee and Ohio State haven't offered yet. Other offers include Michigan State, Iowa, Clemson, Duke, Auburn, Mississippi, California, Louisville and Oklahoma, among others.

"I want to go where they'll help me with my future," he said. "I want to play in the NFL after college, so it would be great if they had a history of that."

Although Slaughter followed Michigan, he says he parents like Notre Dame. "They have a high interest in Notre Dame," he said. "They are really impressed with their grad rate and their academics. They love their alumni support and that a degree from there can take you a lot of places.

"I love the campus and the atmosphere was great," Slaughter said. "It's a real hometown-type place. Everybody knows everybody and it just seemed like a fun environment."

Slaughter attended the Georgia Junior Day and although the Bulldogs are only one hour from his house, he says that distance isn't a factor. "I don't care if I stay in Georgia or not."

He says he remains very open and admits he won't make a decision until after the season. "I also want to see what happens with Tennessee and Ohio State," Slaughter said. "They both send me a lot of mail and the Ohio State coaches were at my school not too long ago."

Slaughter reports a 3.0 core GPA, a 1230 SAT and a 15 ACT. He plans to retake the SAT on June 2.
