Buford (Ga.) High School, one of the premier programs in the Southeast in the last decade, has produced some high-caliber offensive linemen in the past five years. In 2009, Dallas Lee signed with Georgia, and in 2010, Kolton Houston did the same. DuVon Millsap signed with South Carolina the same year before enrolling at Itawamba Community College. Last year Vadal Alexander signed with LSU. And in 2013, it’s possible this pipeline of offensive linemen to the SEC could continue with Josh Cardiello.

Several programs had been showing interest, and a week ago Cardiello got his first offer from Florida. On Monday, South Carolina offered; on Tuesday, Georgia followed.
