This is it, folks.
Georgia has the most pivotal recruiting weekend ahead–and the Bulldogs know it.
Lorenzo Carter is on campus and the Bulldogs might be in the cozy zone with him if they can seal the deal with this elusive recruit. Then Bryson Allen-Williams, the linebacker from within state boundaries who has been committed to South Carolina for many months … he’s coming to town too. So is Wesley Green, the former Gamecocks commitment who is looking around and who might go back to South Carolina.
It’ll be busy in Athens.
But it will also be busy in Starkville. The Bulldogs are busy trying to flip Alabama commit O.J. Smith, as well as shore up JUCO No. 1 cornerback Tee Shepard and former Arkansas tight end commit Ravian Pierce. Mississippi State has several other players on campus and it could be a busy finish for the program. If the Bulldogs could go three-for-three for Smith, Shepard and Pierce, it’ll be a huge recruiting victory.
Vandy will try to salvage a class with this weekend. The Commodores are bringing in several recruits from other programs. Don’t be surprised if they flip some of them. New coach Derek Mason is using his recruiting contacts on the west coast to try to sway some players away from other schools. With only nine commitments on board, this weekend will be key.
Individually, Florida is hoping to sway Damian Prince–the five-star lineman and Alabama is hoping to talk five-star stud Chad Thomas out of his Miami commitment. These two programs may not have a dozen top kids coming in, but these two are as good as it gets.
