Auburn police believe shooting suspect Desmonte Leonard is in the Montgomery area. Leonard is from Montgomery, and they believe he went to his hometown to flee from the police. Two arrests have been made in Gabriel Thomas and Jeremy Thomas. Thomas was a “person of interest” who Auburn police sought to question. Thomas was charged with providing false information as policed searched for Leonard in Montgomery. [AL]
Alabama landed JUCO DL Leon Brown from Brooklyn’s Asa College. Brown becomes Alabama’s 17th commitment for 2013, and he’s massive DT at 6-6, 310lbs. He’ll play the nose technique in Nick Saban’s physical defense. Brown chose the Tide over Kansas and Ole Miss. “Basically, I wanted to put all my dedication towards my upcoming season at junior college. I’m most likely going to take my official visit to Alabama during the season. I’ll probably just take that visit to Alabama and not look around or take visits to other schools.” [AL]
Arkansas landed a commitment from DB Khari Harding. Harding becomes Arkansas’ 7th commit on the year. The Oklahoman ranked Harding as the No. 6 overall prospect in the state of Oklahoma. That’s a big commitment, keeping him away from both Oklahoma and OK State. Harding had 71 tackles and three interceptions as a junior. [Arkansas Sports 360]
Georgia’s DL coach thinks his DL is among the best in the country. I agree with him. As a matter of fact, I’ll go out on a limb and say the Bulldogs have the best front seven in the country. Their DL has some big men who have some big-time talent. At linebacker, it certainly doesn’t hurt that the best LB in the country in Jarvis Jones is rushing the passer from his OLB position. This front seven will try and prove they are tops in the country. [AJC]
Kentucky has not beaten Florida since 1986. The Cats’ 25 game skid against the Gators is understandable. UK has had its chances to defeat Florida but has failed to do so. In 1993, KY intercepted seven UF passes but lost on an eventual last-gasp touchdown pass. Florida has beaten Kentucky a combined point total of 200-36 since 2008. [Kentucky]
