Former NFL star running back Eddie George is now a college football head coach at Tennessee State.

George, who starred collegiately at Ohio State, has a son who's starting to look at colleges.

Two schools are off limits, though.

"He can't go to Jackson State," Eddie George told The Tennessean. "He's not going there or that team up north (Michigan, the rival of George's alma mater, Ohio State). But I tell him to see all that's out there and ultimately trust your intuition, trust your gut."

George's son, Eriq, is a defensive lineman recruit in the 2023 class. 

That's pretty well said by Eddie.

Fans appreciate it.

"Come on Eddie lol," one fan wrote.

"How is going to say don’t go to these 2, but also: “see all that's out there and ultimately trust your intuition, trust your gut." Haha," one fan added.

"You mean your son can't go to MICHIGAN? That outstanding GO BLUE up in MICHIGAN? I'm sure MICHGAN would love to have him so they could beat those nuts down south of the border of MICHIGAN! Looking forward to him wearing the MAIZE & BLUE of MICHIGAN! Good luck this year at TSU!!" one fan added.

Where would you go if you were Eddie's son?
