Ex-NFL star’s son has UGA in his top three

One name you’re going to hear a lot over the next couple of years is Nigel Warrior.

And it’s not because he has an awesome last name for a defensive player.

The junior from Westlake High School is already rated as one of the nation’s top cornerbacks for 2016, and his father is one of the best cornerbacks the state of Georgia has ever produced – former NFL Pro Bowler Dale Carter.
