The NCAA dead period is over and …

Let the games begin.

The NCAA’s dead period ends at midnight on Wednesday — opening up the gate for three weeks of recruiting madness until the Feb. 5 signing day.

Not surprisingly, UGA and Florida won’t waste any time trying to make an impression on Lorenzo Carter, the state’s No. 1 overall prospect.

Both SEC schools (which are Carter’s co-leaders) are expected to have coaches at Norcross High School first thing at Thursday morning.

Florida is also rumored to be taking a look at Myles Autry, who is the Norcross WR-RB who missed most of his senior year while recovering from a major knee injury. He looked nearly 100-percent with two game-changing touchdowns in the state championship game.

Autry has set up official visits with both Georgia Tech (where his bother plays) and Florida State. He also happens to be best friends with Carter.

Could Carter and Autry be a package deal to FSU? Probably not, but you never know in the wacky world of recruiting. FSU appears to be on the outside, looking in.

But if Florida offers? That could raise the stakes in this high-profile recruiting battle for Carter. It could force UGA to take another close look at Autry.

Carter is scheduled to take official visits the next three weeks to LSU, FSU and UGA. He took his recruiting trip to Florida during the football season.
