Guess which prospects are taking visits to other schools? 

By Michael Carvell

Stockbridge High School cornerback Kenderius Wesbster said he was expecting to talk with new UGA defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt on Wednesday night.

Webster committed to Ole Miss over UGA and Florida State in November, but said he’s interested in the Bulldogs again after Pruitt’s hiring. “I like his coaching style; that’s pretty much why I liked Florida State.”

What if UGA invited Webster for an official visit? “I’d take a look.”

OTHER NOTES OF INTEREST

Another one of the state’s top uncommitted prospects, ELCA defensive tackle Andrew Williams, said he was contacted by UGA’s Pruitt over Twitter on Tuesday to see if he had any interest in the Bulldogs. Williams politely declined. “I was real close to Pruitt while he was at FSU,” he said. “It’s just that UGA runs a 3-4 defense, and I don’t feel like I fit in it. I can play as a rush end, but I really prefer to play with my hand in the dirt and play on the line for all four downs.” Williams will take official visits to over the next three weeks to his finalists — Auburn, Ole Miss and Clemson — and announce his college decision on signing day.

South Carolina LB commit Bryson Allen-Williams of Cedar Grove High School said Auburn has invited him for an official visit. “But I doubt I take it,” he said. Allen-Williams was one of the most impressive Georgia players at the Army Bowl.

Tucker High School’s Elisha Shaw, who was once among the nation’s defensive tackles, said he has set up one official visit – to Alabama for Jan. 24. Shaw missed his senior season with a neck injury and has not been cleared to play again.

Tucker High School safety Kirk Tucker has de-committed from Stanford after taking an official visit with the Cardinal last weekend.  “Everybody knows how tough it is to get admitted to Stanford, and he didn’t make it,” said Tucker coach Brian Lamar, who has been in contact with Ohio State the last few days about Tucker. “Ohio State is interested. We’re trying to work something out. He’s also interested in going out to the West coast and playing in the Pac-12. We’ve contacted USC, Oregon and some of those schools like that.”

Lovejoy High School linebacker Demarquis Gates will take official visits to Indiana, Ole Miss and Wake Forest. He’s committed to Ole Miss, and Oklahoma State is also trying to get a visit.

Mississippi State OL commit Jordan Harris of Stephenson High School will take official visits to Hampton University and Mississippi State over the next two weeks. Harris said he’s also heard from Georgia Tech, and planning a visit to FSU “real soon.”

Eric and Elliott Berry, the twin younger brothers of NFL All-Pro Eric Berry, will take official visits to Tennessee on Jan. 31. The athletes from Creekside High School are committed to Tennessee.

Norcross High School QB AJ Bush (left handed) will take an official visit to Boston College on Friday, and he could go to Marshall next weekend.

Former UGA commit Dontavius Russell of Carrollton High School will take his official visit to Auburn on Jan. 17. The 4-star defensive tackle is now committed to the Tigers.

Chattahoochee High School WR Collin Lisa will take an official visit to UAB on Jan. 24, and maybe Akron. He’s also hearing from UConn, Temple and Georgia Southern. He’s another one of the state’s most overlooked seniors.

=========================

What, this cannot be true?

After all, the CPJ apologists have repeatedly told everyone that reads these blogs that GT cannot and does not recruit the SAME RECRUITS that schools like Miss.St. go after.

No way could a Miss. St. prospect be hearing from GT this late in the recruiting process, after all our ELITE ACADEMICS at GT keeps us from recruiting players that Miss. St. go after.

Obviously he doesn't understand Saban's modus operandi for dealing with injured players out of HS.

Bama must have had a some cancellations;  not often would Saban allow an injured player to use one of Bama's precious OVs.

Where is GTBoob and Stein and the others that claim that Stanford makes allowances to let guys like this in?

You can never find those guys when they are proven wrong.

The same thing happened to Lou Young that GT accepted in a NY-second.

Coach Pruitt get the prospective recruit to read a page from any Shakespeare play, If they can actually read it mark them off the UGa recruit list but if they can't read it get them to sign with an X on the LOI as fast as you can.

Recruiting on the outside looking in seems to be a cut throat business. As a fan I want the Georgia Staff to always take the "High Road" and let the chips fall where they may.  By high road I guess to say be honest, sell UGA and their staff,  and not cut down other programs.

I bet the recruits at Stanford are reading on grade level as well!!!

So Stanford maintains some admission standards and still competes with schools that have none.  I imagine the Cardinal has few player arrests as well.

Well the doom and gloom from Dawg fans has turned to optimism, there is a new hope for the future. I think im going to miss all that drama though, oh well Good luck you and yours.

The SEC has been holding their breath that the Dawgs would stay weak on Defense. This is NOT good news for them. Dawgs winning 8,9 games with NO defense. Could be a difference maker

@BigGDawg  If you like Football and the military here is a good book to read.

All American by Steve Eubanks. 

It is about the 2001 Army Navy game and the lives to of 2 players that served in Iraq.


For recruits and parents this is a great statement to what a good college and degree can do for your future.


"Recruiters for Fortune 500 companies listed the most sought-after college graduates as those from, in order:

1 West point

2 the Naval Academy

3 the Air Force Academy

4 Massachusetts Institute of technology

5 Harvard

6 Yale

Stanford, Brown, Princeton, and, oddly enough, Georgia Institute of Technology have slipped in and out of the fifth and sixth slots, but no school has knocked Army and Navy off the top in almost three decades."


If that isn't a reason to send your kids to THE INSTITUTE or for a recruit to choose GEORGIA TECH then your future is not the focus. Football is a DREAM but a Degree from these schools is a FUTURE.


Jealous? HAHAHA.....woof woof.....go sniff a butt or hump a leg.

Johnny, you make a habit of being wrong about everything UGA. I guess that doesn't matter as long as you get to trash our school. You don't seem to be a tech fan, as much as an UGA anti-fan. All the regular readers pretty much ignore you or just think of you as a keyboard bully with issues...
