Highly-touted quarterback recruit Nicholaus Iamaleava has narrowed his college search down to five schools.

On Wednesday night, the No. 7 overall recruit in the nation (per 247Sports' Composite Rankings) took to social media to announce the five big-time programs still in the running to land him.

Georgia, Oregon, Alabama, Tennessee and Miami are still in the mix.

Iamaleava, a 6-foot-6, 200 lbs five-star prospect, is the No. 4 quarterback recruit in a stacked 2023 class that includes Arch Manning, Malachi Nelson and Dante Moore. In addition to his football prowess at Long Beach Poly, Iamaleava is also a top volleyball recruit.

247Sports National recruiting directer Steve Wiltfong predicts the five-star will commit to Josh Heupel's Tennessee program, but any of these teams would no doubt be thrilled to bolster their 2023 class with a talented signal caller like Iamaleava.
