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.
