Georgia has expressed some interest in Warner Robins cornerback Rashad Wynes, who has committed to Alabama-Birmingham. Georgia defensive coordinator Willie Martinez noticed Wynes when he was watching film of the Warner Robins-Peach County scrimmage. Martinez was studying junior defensive tackle Jeffrey Whitaker, who has already been offered by the Bullodgs. “I had about 4-5 pass breakups, and [Martinez] told my coaches that he wanted to see me in person,” said Wynes. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Wynes was offered recruiting tickets for Georgia’s game against Alabama on Sept. 27. Wynes said he has not had any direct contact with the Bulldogs, nor does he know how to interpret the situation. “It’s all good, I haven’t thought about it a lot,” Wynes said. “I’m just going to go to the game and see what happens.” Wynes has exceptional size and athleticism for the defensive secondary. With Georgia, he is likely a backup target in case the Bulldogs fail to land one or both of the state’s top uncommitted defensive backs, Washington High’s Branden Smith or Carver-Atlanta’s Darren Myles. Ole Miss has offered a scholarship and is strongly pursuing Wynes, who said he remains loyal to Alabama-Birmingham
Georgia Tech and Georgia have rarely gone head-to-head on any prospects this year, but that could change with the recruitment of Miller Grove wide receiver Stephen Hill. The 6-foot-5, 190-pound Hill was offered by Tech on Thursday, and is a scholarship candidate at Georgia. Hill said the Bulldogs have discussed an official visit. “Georgia said they want me to come down in December or January because that’s when they like to bring in all the in-state kids.” The 6-5, 190-pound Hill was an early commitment to Central Florida, and was offered by Boston College and Ole Miss last week. Alabama scouted Hill’s game last Friday, and could be the next to offer, while Tennessee has also entered the sweepstakes.
M.L. King linebacker Joel Kight says he’s going to stay open on all scholarship offers until he learns more about the schools. He’s also learning a new position. The 5-foot-10, 210-pound Kight has moved to safety to help the Lions (3-1) put the best 11 [defenders] on the field. He says it’s possible that he will play safety in college. “It’s not really hurting me. I think it’s helping me,” said Kight of the position change. “As long as we’re getting wins, it’s fine with me.” The biggest difference in the positions? “You think pass first as a safety,” he said. “Linebackers are always thinking run first.” If Kight had to pick front-runners, he said he’d pick Mississippi, Boston College and Oklahoma State. He also has offers from Connecticut, Duke, Miami-Ohio, Indiana and Arizona State. One requirement in the program he chooses is team effort. “As long as they play hard, I like that because I play hard,” he said. Kight is MLK’s leading tackler. He averages 11 tackles (solos and assists) in four games.
Daniel Hood of Knoxville (Tenn.) Catholic High says he’s narrowed his college choices to three programs. And the 6-foot-5, 260-pound tight end is in the middle of weekend road trips to evaluate each school. “My top three are Auburn, Georgia Tech and Ole Miss,” said Hood, who attended Saturday’s Mississippi State-Tech game at Bobby Dodd Stadium. He’ll take in the Tennessee-Auburn game at Jordan Hare Stadium on Saturday, and is scheduled to visit Ole Miss the following weekend. Hood is somewhat familiar with the campuses at Auburn and Ole Miss. “I went to Auburn once last year on an unofficial visit when I went to the New Mexico State game,” he said. “And I’ve been to Ole Miss on a visit, but not for a game.” Hood doesn’t have a commitment timetable. “I haven’t made any made any [commitment] plans yet,” he said. “It depends on how the next couple of visits go.”
Former Auburn star and current Ole Miss defensive line coach Tracy Rocker made inquires last week on Gainesville defensive end Josh Jackson, a member of the AJC’s The Georgia Top 150. “Ole Miss is heating up on him,” Gainesville assistant coach Todd Wofford said. “Coach Rocker said they’ll keep watching and see how he plays this year.” Central Florida and Indiana have also show interest in the 6-foot-2, 248-pound Jackson, whose hobbies include singing with an R&B/hip hop group.
