NCF On The Trail: Tavon Ross

ATLANTA -- Jawon Pass was sitting at a stoplight recently when he looked to his left and saw a Georgia Bulldogs bumper sticker. Then he turned to his right and saw a South Carolina Gamecocks logo staring at him from a window of another car. Then directly in front of him were vehicles with Tennessee Volunteers and Clemson Tigers license plate frames.

Pass, a highly regarded 2016 quarterback from Columbus (Ga.) Carver, has lived in 10 different cities while growing up, but when he arrived in Georgia six years ago, he immediately noticed things were different.

“There are fans from everywhere here,” said Pass, who already has scholarship offers from Clemson, Florida, Mississippi State, North Carolina, NC State, Notre Dame and Texas A&M. “Georgia is the heart of college football. Georgia fans are all over. But you’re also going to see a lot of Clemson, Auburn, Alabama fans and everybody else. It’s like nowhere else I’ve lived before. Georgia is the melting pot of college football, if you ask me.”

He plays quarterback for Bleckley but, according to The Telegraph, is expected to line up in Missouri's defensive backfield.

The Tigers now have 20 pledges for 2014. Ross is their first verbal from Georgia.

With the acceleration of the recruiting process, not having an offer in March can lead to panic for some prospects. In part one of a six-part series, Recruiting Nation will feature five defensive players in Georgia who have yet to pick up an offer from a FBS (formerly known as Division 1A) program.

While there is no way to know just how the process will unfold for these recruits, their talent suggests that interest will continue to grow as more colleges evaluate them on film and in person.
