After de-committing to Kentucky, Heritage's Jones sets visit to Alabama

7:02 p.m. Tuesday, September 30, 2008

Alabama, South Carolina and Vanderbilt are hot on the trail of Heritage defensive end Justin Jones, who backed out of his commitment to Kentucky last week. The toughest part of the decision was realizing he won’t be playing college football alongside South Forsyth quarterback and Kentucky commit Brian Adams “Yeah, that [hurt],” said Jones, an AJC’s The Georgia Top 150 choice. “Brian is a good guy and one of my good friends. “But in the end, it’s what’s best for me. And I don’t think Kentucky was best for me.” Jones will now focus on scholarship offers from East Carolina and South Carolina. And Alabama and Vanderbilt are showing strong interest. He has received an invitation to visit Tuscaloosa on Saturday. “I’m going to Alabama for the Kentucky game,” said Jones, who attended junior day last year and a camp this summer in Tuscaloosa. “I’m hoping to pick up an offer [from the Crimson Tide]. South Carolina coaches turned up the heat on Jones when he attended the Gamecocks’ home game with Georgia on Sept. 13. “They made it clear that their offer was still solid, but I was committed to Kentucky at the time,” Jones said. “South Carolina is coming on pretty good and Vanderbilt has come by [Heritage]. Right now, I’m just looking to see what each school has to offer.”

Tucker's Roberson out for the season with injury

11:52 p.m. Monday, September 15, 2008

Tucker's Roberson out for the season with injury Tucker defensive end Deion Roberson, a member of the AJC’s The Georgia 150 list, will miss the rest of the season with a dislocated ankle, his coach said. Roberson suffered the left ankle injury in Tucker’s season-opening 26-12 victory at Brunswick on Aug. 29, when a teammate was blocked into his leg during the game’s second play. Tucker coach Franklin Stephens said Monday that Roberson is expected to make a full recovery. “Anytime a player of that size [6-3, 258] and caliber is lost it affects the team tremendously,” Stephens said. “The loss of Deion is a big blow for a team that could not afford any injuries.” Tucker is 3-0 and ranked No. 1 in Class AAAA. Roberson has been offered by Memphis, West Virginia, N.C. State, Louisville, East Carolina, Michigan State, Maryland, Iowa State, Georgia Southern and South Alabama, and has said that he’s not concerned his injury will scare schools away.

How It Went: Friday night hero visits East Carolina

9:37 p.m. Sunday, September 7, 2008

Just hours after tossing a 36-yard winning touchdown pass Friday night on the final play of Sandy Creek’s 17-16 upset victory over Shaw, quarterback Rio Johnson hit the highway for the seven-hour drive to Greenville, N.C. Johnson, who committed to East Carolina this summer, wound up witnessing arguably the biggest win in the school’s history after the Pirates slammed No. 8 West Virginia 24-3. “It was just great,” said Johnson, a member of the AJC’s The Georgia Top 150. “The game was sold out and the atmosphere was crazy. “They got the recruits out of there and off the sidelines with about 50 seconds left because they didn’t know what the fans would do.” It was the second trip to East Carolina for Johnson, who attended a camp there earlier this year. Johnson, who also has scholarship offers from Memphis, Ohio and UAB, said he’s set with East Carolina, even if an ACC or SEC program make a late run at him. “I’m 100 percent with East Carolina,” he said. “They liked me from the beginning. Other schools are just now noticing me. “And that game [on Saturday] made me smile a little more about my decision.”

Carver RB Dennis mulls over Alabama and Auburn offers

11:25 p.m. Wednesday, September 3, 2008

Demond Dennis of Carver, Atlanta was thrilled to learn earlier this year that he had received scholarship offers from SEC powerhouses Alabama and Auburn. But the euphoria subsided just a bit once he read the fine print. “I was excited when I first got [the offers], but now they both want me to switch over to defensive back,” the 5-foot-10, 193-pound senior said. “I want to play running back. “I haven’t had time to talk to either of them face-to-face. But I’ve been told that their depth charts at running back are full.” Dennis also holds offers from East Carolina, Illinois, Louisville, Western Kentucky and UAB. He is being recruited by each of those programs as a running back. Alabama and Auburn’s decision to target Dennis as a cornerback could open the door for the Cardinals. “I know I’m going to take a visit to Louisville,” said Dennis, who started at cornerback for Carver as a sophomore before moving to running back during his junior season. “I’ll try to take a visit to UAB, Alabama and Auburn.” Dennis, who runs the 40 in 4.45 seconds, has plenty of research ahead of him this fall. “I believe once I do all of my visits and meet all of the coaches, I’ll commit,” he said. “It will probably be after the season.”

Lifelong UGA fan sticking with East Carolina

1:52 a.m. Monday, August 25, 2008

Kyle Tudor of Lakeside High of Evans is a big Georgia fan, with his parents owning season tickets for Bulldogs games. However, when East Carolina offered a scholarship, the 6-foot-4, 215-pounder thought it was too good of an opportunity to pass on. Tudor also had serious interest from Vanderbilt, N.C. State, and Duke, among others. Before Tudor committed to East Carolina, he went to Georgia's prospect camp in June. However, a strained muscle in Tudor's back limited his participation in the workouts. Georgia's coaches were intrigued, but not enough to offer, and Tudor went ahead and picked the Pirates a few weeks later. "If anybody else offered, I'd hear them out, hear what they had to say, " Tudor said. "But I'm going to stick with East Carolina. I really like it there and think I have a chance to help the team out early." Tudor played safety for Lakeside last year, but now is expected to play linebacker after a growth spurt. He projects to play linebacker in college.
