2017 UGA Target Could Commit at Any Time

Almost a year ago Georgia offered this four-star in-state sophomore and he could commit at any time...

Last June is when Georgia offered 2017 versatile athlete Leonard Warner. He has played offense and defense in high school, but schools are targeting him at outside linebacker.

Since the Dawgs offered the 6-foot-3, 226 pound four-star out of Snellville (Ga.) Brookwood, he has visited Athens half a dozen times. He just added an offer from Alabama last week and he is now pushing double-digits.

Do not expect Warner to ride the recruiting process out.

"I want to commit when I find the school for me," said Warner. "When I feel I have it in my mind, I will go ahead and commit. It could happen at any time."

The Dawgs have not specifically discussed Warner's future position with him yet, but he knows he is being recruited to play a role like Lorenzo Carter and Leonard Floyd play now.

He has talked with some of the defensive staff in the past at UGA, but his lead recruiter is new running backs coach, Thomas Brown. Warner praised the former Bulldog running back.

"Coach Brown is a really cool guy and I like him a lot. He is smart, he is articulate, and he really knows what he is talking about. He is a coach I like talking to."

Relationships are always part of the equation in recruiting and Georgia has that going for them. Warner also likes the culture in Athens and his interest is high in the in-state school.

"I really like the people at Georgia," said Warner. "There are a lot of caring people there and I like that a lot. The way the coaches, players, and people there care about one-another really shows me a lot. I know Georgia cares and I like that.

"It makes me feel comfortable at Georgia. I like that it is close to home too. That may not be big for me at the moment, but being close could be a factor later on.

"I like Georgia a lot and I know I will be back there soon."
