With the Bye Week, thought we'd forgo the Locker Notes this week and look at some recruiting nuggets. Afterall, if it's good enough for the coaches this week...good enough for me. (All links are Scout premium)
- First and foremost, Jeff Luc. The Port St. Lucie 5 star MLB has visited KiffyBaby and is heading out to sunny California this weekend. Slurban and LSwho will also get visits. Athens is on a fairly short list to get his fifth visit. However, there may not be much time to gain ground on the front runners, as Luc is still trying to graduate early. If that falls into place, a decision will be coming soon.
- Another longshot is Crimson Tide commit Blake Sims. Turns out CMR wants back in and plans to handle the Gainseville, GA athlete's recruitment personally. Sims' dad says his son is happy with his decision. I guess we'll find out how happy.
- TJ Stripling committed to CMR back in August, but still chats with coaches from Florida, Tennessee and Ohio State. The SW Dekalb star is 6'6" and 215 pounds and is the #12 rated d-end in the nation. Coach Garner is keeping close tabs on TJ, who says "I still see myself playing for Georgia right now."
- Meanwhile 5 star safety Alec Ogletree also remains committed to Georgia and is showing everyone watching that he's ready to play at the college level now. If you follow the link and watch Simmons' video of Ogletree, about a minute in is a hit so pure and violent it is eerily reminiscent of one Thomas Davis. At 6'3" and 215 pounds...#39 is
dangerouslethal at the high school level.
I'll try and get some more up this weekend while I'm watching other teams fight to move up in the Mumme Poll.
