What it all means: I wouldn't hold my breath for Georgia to sign Bryant – signing a top talent out of Florida – I'll believe it when I see it. He came up to Georga's seven-on-seven in June. There may not be a school in state with stronger ties to Athens than Lipscomb's Tucker. Tucker Safety Jamoris Slaughter may have committed to Notre Dame not too long ago, but Lipscomb is still being pursued hotly by the Dawgs. Parks does not seem very interested in Georgia – he seems headed out of state. Whitlock is an intriguing offer – could he be another South Carolina corner the Bulldogs steal ala Tim Jennings and Prince Miller? He's already being tabbed as a better player than those two, and neither in-state program is going to pass on him.
Georgia already has one of the most athletic safeties in the state in Boykin. Pugh keeps the strong Georgia-Independence tie going. Don't be surprised if Georgia signs one more corner – Whitlock and Lipscomb seem the likely targets right now. Avery is a target, too, and Georgia seems him as a cornerback, not a running back. But he's good enough running back to get an offer there, too. So if he wants to do that or play baseball in the minor leagues Georgia may not be the place for him. Still, Avery is one of the top athletes in Georgia, so put him down on your list, too.
