UGA defensive coordinator Todd Grantham has accepted the same position at Louisville, according to the AJC’s Chip Towers.

Here’s reaction from UGA’s top recruiting targets:

  • Norcross High School’s defensive end Lorenzo Carter, who is the state’s No. 1 overall prospect and has UGA and Florida as his co-leaders, while also considering LSU and FSU: “I just heard about that today so I’m surprised but I just gotta wait and see what happens.”
  • Alabama LB commit Christian Miller of Columbia, S.C., who is considering an official visit to UGA: “Well he was the DC, so they may have to change their scheme, which would be interesting. I’m interested in seeing who the replacement will be.”

Here’s reaction from recruits already committed to UGA:

  • Defensive end Keyon Brown of Wauchula, Fla. (who probably passed Lamont Gaillard as UGA’s top defensive commit after the all-star games): “I like Coach Grantham and all, and I hope he has a good time at Louisville. But I’m a Dawg. And that’s not changing.”
  • Tucker High School linebacker Detric Dukes: “It doesn’t affect me at all I’m a dawg”
  • Marist defensive tackle Kendall Baker: “I’m not tripping. I’m still staying with UGA. We will be fine. The players are going to make things happen next year. Just the person making the calls might be different. We still going to make plays.”
  • Safety Kendall Gant of Lakeland, Fla.: “I don’t know right now (how it affects my commitment). I haven’t talked with a coach yet.”
