Expect 2020 cornerback Lejond Cavazos to be one of the top players in his class. We're still almost two full years away from his National Signing Day, but he already has some serious offers heading into his junior season.

Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Michigan, Notre Dame, and USC are among the many big offers he already has. Two schools currently stand out, however.

The IMG Academy standout has taken trips to both Georgia and Ohio State. While there is plenty of time for things to change, as of now it seems like the recruitment will come down to those two schools.

DawgNation's Jeff Sentell spoke to Cavazos after his trip to Athens. From his write-up:

“It definitely complicated it a lot,” Cavazos said. “Coming off that Ohio State visit, I was like ‘This is the school’ and this and that and then going to Georgia hearing like kind of the same stuff makes it really a hard decision. They are both really good schools so I don’t know what I am going to do now leading up to a commitment.

“I thought I was going to commit like in a couple of weeks before I go back to school so it really just made it a lot harder on me.”

After the two visits, Cavazos says that the two teams are tied in his mind.

“They are both definitely tied right now,” Cavazos said. “Everything that I heard from one school I also heard from the other school. They both said the same things and made the same points.”

Cavazos expects to take additional trips this fall for big games. He could commit before that, and it sounds like he wants to get the decision out of the way long before his senior season in 2019.

As a 2020 recruit, the rankings are still very early. 247Sports does not have a composite ranking for him, but the site's internal rankings have him as a three-star player, and the No. 38 player in Florida. Rivals is more bullish on him early, giving him four-stars. Give his offers, it would be shocking if he didn't wind up as one of the top defensive backs in the country.
