Tarvarus McFadden is still doing some looking, and some liking. The four-star cornerback took his first visit to Georgia last weekend. Georgia must have done something right, because it’s made a ‘big’ move, according to National Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons.
The Seminoles held the top spot for several months, but not anymore. Simmons says Georgia has moved to the top spot based on what he’s hearing lately. Georgia, Florida State and LSU are the finalists, but McFadden doesn’t plan to take his visit to Baton Rouge as of Friday.
McFadden plans to commit on Oct. 31, and Georgia seems to be the trending school for the 6-foot-2, 198-pound corner.
D’Andre Walker has spoken to Simmons a bit more since his visit to Athens. The Langston Hughes defensive end liked what he saw in terms of Georgia’s rotation during the Clemson game. He also liked the fact Georgia played multiple fronts.
Emanuel McGirt should commit soon, and he will more than likely choose Georgia. Look for a decision in the next two weeks. Yes, Georgia is trending.
Tennessee has been the trending school for Micah Abernathy for the most part, but Georgia has gotten its name into the talks recently. Let’s just say Georgia is getting more looks than Tennessee as of late, but the two schools are in a battle. Like McGirt, Abernathy’s decision could come soon.
Last but not least, Florida is still in the picture for Roquan Smith. However, Georgia has pulled out in front by a ‘considerable amount,’ according to Simmons.
It probably doesn’t hurt the Dawgs’ chances that Smith is very close to Terry Godwin. Smith feels very comfortable in Athens and has a great relationship with the coaching staff. He won't commit until late in the game, though.
Smith could play early for Georgia, so it’s no surprise the Bulldogs are trending heavily for the Macon County linebacker.
