SEC Football News on Saturday Down South

Georgia’s lone JUCO player Fenteng will sign in February

NEW: Follow on facebook -

While coaches all over the SEC got to brag a good bit on their junior college signings on Wednesday, not a peep was heard in the Georgia camp about their prized JUCO player.

Shattle Fenteng told Saturday Down South this week that he’ll be signing in February and won’t be on campus as an early enrollee–meaning Mark Richt and his staff can’t comment on him yet. Fenteng played his junior college football at Hutchinson Community College in Kansas, and played his high school football at Grayson H.S. in Loganville (Ga.)–the same high school as famed defensive end Robert Nkemdiche, who played extensively as a true freshman this year at Ole Miss.

As the story goes, college coaches noticed Fenteng when they came to see Nkemdiche, and people stayed in touch with the 6-foot-2, 200-pound cornerback. On a defense that gave up its fair share of points and yardage in 2013, Fenteng will be a welcome addition when he reached campus in 2014. Early enrollment or not, he’ll find the field a lot in 2014–there’s little doubt about that.

Meanwhile the Bulldogs are sitting stable with 16 commitments. They haven’t had a commitment since Keyon Brown came aboard in September, but that will change soon as targets like Lorenzo Carter, Elisha Shaw and Wesley Green become the prime focus. Carter’s the big one–the Bulldogs must keep Alabama and the rest of the SEC gang from poaching their best in-state talent, and landing Carter would help that.
