- UPDATE: UGA dispatched two assistant coaches, including new defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, to visit the mother of Bryson Allen-Williams at work last Friday, according to a report by 247sports.com’s Rusty Mansell on Monday.
The mother of the state’s hottest prospect, Bryson Allen-Williams, has issued a statement regarding her son’s recruiting, via The Big Spur.
The 4-star linebacker from Cedar Grove High School has been committed to South Carolina since last spring, and took an official visit with the Gamecocks this weekend.
Allen-Williams told the AJC on Friday that he will take an official visit to Alabama next weekend, and he’s considering going to UGA on Jan. 31.
His mother, Darnisha Allen-Jackson, issued a statement on Sunday:
“Do not make this visit to Georgia something that is more than it is. Bryson is as solid as he can be to South Carolina. It is a free trip on Georgia’s dime. It is a free trip on Alabama’s dime. And as two coaches told me recently, you’ve got to understand if he has the opportunity to do well in the SEC, and he makes it to the next level, you never know who you’re going to run into, and he could run into one of these guys who may be a professional coach, and they’ll be like, ‘oh, this kid spurned me, this kid acted like a diva, or a prima donna with me.’
“However, I will say this, if he decides to take the Georgia visit, don’t take that to mean that he’s flipping to Georgia. This is not a Brendan Langley situation. I’ve just got to put that out there. This is not a Brendan Langley, this is not a Matt Rolin, it’s not all these other names that have been thrown out. Bryson is as solid as he can be to South Carolina.”
