Larry Jefferson (Atlanta, Ga./Banneker) already had offers from Auburn, North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Louisville and Western Kentucky, but he was thrilled to land his most recent one because it was from in-state Georgia.

"I hadn't heard from them," Jefferson said. "All I can say is 'dang, it's about time.' I have been waiting and waiting for some time. They told my coaches [Wednesday] and I am supposed to speak with coach [Mark] Richt later. Oh man, I am very excited about this one."

The 6-foot-5, 218-pound defensive end received his first scholarship offer last summer from Auburn and he expects more to be on the way.
