Hannaford tries to get quicker

Hannaford explained that he has not spoken with any Georgia coaches since the silent period began, but that they kept in touch before hand.

There is no doubt that Kane Hannaford is a big player. He stands 6 foot 6 and weighs 325 pounds. But what he is working on now is speed and quickness.

Hannaford, from Palmetto, Florida, said that he has enrolled in the Bollettieri Academy's strength and conditioning program. Bollettieri's International Performance Institute is a "is a systematic approach of combining optimal movement, strength, power, flexibility training and recovery to enhance overall performance."

Hannaford says that it works. "I can tell a difference in my speed and my vertical," he said. The summer speed training seems to be paying off.

Hannaford recently returned from camps at Clemson and Florida where he said that he did "real well".

He told me that while schools seem eager to keep in touch with him with mailings, no one has offered him a scholarship yet.

"Everyone seems pretty interested," he said. "But I have no offers yet," he added.

But that could soon change.

Georgia is reportedly very interested in Hannaford. So much so that the Dawgs have invited him up to Athens to take a closer look at him.

Hannaford explained that he has not spoken with any Georgia coaches since the silent period began, but that they kept in touch before hand.

"They called during May," Hannaford said. "They wanted to let me know that they had seen my game film and that they want me to come to the July Camp in Athens," he said.

Hannaford said that he is planning on going to Athens for the camp. The July Georgia camp could result in several scholarship offers and some possible commitments.
