UGA-AU Recruiting Notebook: Part IV

Tyshon Dye was one of the many high profile prospects on UGA's campus Saturday and he has high interest in the Dawgs. Get the latest on Dye and other visitors here.

High Interest in Dawgs

"My favorite part about my visit to Georgia this time was talking to the head coach (Mark Richt). He talked to me about their interest in me, my grades, taking the SAT, and things like that," said Tyshon Dye.

Clemson and Georgia have offered the 6-foot, 200 pound athlete and the Dawgs have his interest.

"I am not sure who leads right now, but I like UGA a lot. They are not far from home, I like their coaches, and they have a great atmosphere there."

Dye was offered back in the summer at UGA's camp and he could play running back or linebacker on the next level.

Offer Coming Soon?

DeAndre Johnson is a 2013 defensive lineman out of Newnan (GA) Northgate and he was in Athens for the Auburn game. He thinks UGA could be offering soon, if they haven't already.

"Georgia has talked to my coach and they told him they will be offering me, so I might have an offer. They have not told me yet though, so I am not saying I have one. I think they will offer me though," said Johnson.

If UGA offers the 6-foot-3, 305 pound DL, they would have a great shot at landing a commitment from him.

"I have always wanted to have the opportunity to play for Mark Richt, so Georgia is, and they have been number one on my list. It was be awesome to play for Georgia.

"They have the ideal atmosphere to play in, I love how they play as a team, and they have great coaches."

Johnson currently has offers from Georgia Tech, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Ole Miss, and Southern Miss.

Wiggins Expects to see UGA

"I talked to Coach [Rodney] Garner at the game and he told me he will be back at Sandy Creek to check on me soon," said Shaquille Wiggins.

"If they were to offer me, they would be one of the schools I'd think highly of. The atmosphere at the Auburn game was great and that was my first time there this year."

Wiggins is a 2013 corner with offers from schools like Cincinnati, Michigan, Ohio State, and Tennessee among others.
