Tales From The Road: Georgia Bulldogs 

May, 22, 2013
Each week, Tales From The Road will provide news and updates about where Georgia’s coaches have been and what prospects are standing out.

This week’s targets: University of Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham made the most of his time on the road over the last few days, checking in on two five-star defensive line prospects and his top target at outside linebacker. On Tuesday, Grantham saw defensive tackle Andrew Brown (Chesapeake, Va./Oscar Smith), the No. 3 prospect in the country. That same day, Grantham also went with defensive line coach Chris Wilson to see defensive tackle Lamont Gaillard (Fayetteville, N.C./Pine Forest). The No. 10 prospect in the country, Gaillard has the Bulldogs on top of his list at the moment. Coach Wilson also saw ESPN 150 defensive end Kentavius Street (Greenville, N.C/J.H. Rose), ESPN 150 defensive tackle Elisha Shaw (Tucker, Ga./Tucker), ESPN 150 cornerback Wesley Green (Lithonia, Ga./Martin Luther King) and three-star lineman Kendall Baker (Atlanta/Marist) over the last seven days. On Friday, Grantham was in attendance to watch the ESPN 150 defensive end Lorenzo Carter (Norcross, Ga./Norcross). Last Thursday, wide receivers coach Tony Ball went to check on what could be his top target at wideout for the 2014 class. ESPN 150 prospect Cameron Sims (Monroe, La./Ouachita Parish) says Coach Ball came out twice to see him this spring, and he plans to return the favor this summer with a visit to Athens, Ga. Earlier this week, inside linebackers coach Kirk Olivadotti wasted no time in going to see new outside linebacker target and recent Florida decommitment Christian Miller (Spring Valley, S.C./Spring Valley). The ESPN 150 prospect had been hoping to get an offer from the Bulldogs, and now plans to come check Georgia out soon.

Area of interest: South Georgia is home to two targets that Georgia would love to add to their 2014 recruiting class. ESPN 150 cornerback/athlete Malkom Parrish (Quitman, Ga./Brooks County) is looking at both in-state schools, and after visits to both campuses he seems torn between the two. He might be the most talented cornerback the Bulldogs have a great shot at bringing in this recruiting cycle. Recent offensive line target Dyshon Sims (Valdosta, Ga./Lowndes) is thirty minutes down the road, and he hold his offer from Georgia in very high regard. Putting their foot on the gas for both prospects could result in two additions to the commitment list from a pair of in-state prospects with enormous potential.
Peach State: Top Tier Recruiting Ground?
California, Florida and Texas are largely considered the "Big Three" in college football recruiting. But national recruiting analyst Gerry Hamilton joins ESPN's Phil Murphy to explain why Georgia deserves to be in the top tier and has numbers to prove it.
