MARRERO, La. — Donte’ Starks is hoping to put an exclamation point on his recruitment in the near future.
Starks, the No. 5-ranked inside linebacker in the Class of 2019, tells SEC Country that he will give a commitment on July 8, his 18th birthday.
The 4-star linebacker from New Orleans power John Ehret (La.) High School is high on several SEC schools, including LSU, Auburn, Georgia, Mississippi State and Texas A&M, among others.
The 6-foot-1, 220-pound Louisiana standout is a top-150 prospect and a top-10 recruit in-state.
Starks originally planned on committing at the 2019 Under Armour All-America Game in January, but opted to push it up. He will release a narrowed down list of top schools in the near future. LSU and Auburn are currently the two favorites in his recruitment.
