Recruiting Uncertainty Swirls

ATHENS - The calm before the storm (and a storm is coming) has arrived for Georgia's 2014 recruiting class.

This weekend only one uncommitted official visitor, three-star Tampa Catholic (Fla.) safety T.J. Harrell visited the Bulldogs. That won't be the case next week, or next weekend.

Four uncommitted players: four-star MLK cornerback Wesley Green, four-star Cedar Grove outside linebacker Bryson Allen-Williams, three-star East Gadsden (Fla.) offensive lineman Derrick Kelly and five-star Norcross defensive end Lorenzo Carter will visit the Bulldogs next weekend.

Green, who was once committed to the Gamecocks, will pick between South Carolina and Georgia. Allen-Williams, who is committed to South Carolina, is considered a long shot to pick the Bulldogs in the end.

But Kelly and Carter are the two to keep an eye on over the weekend. Kelly re-arranged his official visit schedule – deciding to head to Athens instead of Florida State for his final visit of the year. Carter, who would be the prize of the Bulldogs' class should he select Georgia over LSU and Florida, has been considered a Bulldog lean for some time.

The slew of uncommitted visitors, the overhaul of the defensive coaching staff and the uncertainty concerning prospects is shaping up to make Georgia's finish to the 2014 recruiting class one of the most difficult of the Mark Richt era to dissect. According to National Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons there are several other players to keep an eye on this final ten days of the recruiting cycle. Eagles Landing Christian outside linebacker Andrew Williams, long considered a strong possibility to pick either Clemson or Auburn, is considering taking an official visit to Athens the final weekend of the year as well.

Three-star Merritt Island (Fla.) defensive back Shaquille Jones and three-star Lakeland (Fla.) safety Brujoun Bonner are also being pursued by the Bulldogs. Jones just switched his commitment from South Alabama to Louisville and former Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. If Georgia wants Bonner it will have to pry him away from Memphis, where he is committed.
