Dunwoody defensive end Malcolm Mitchell, an AJC Georgia Top 150 prospect, said he "probably" will visit West Virginia this weekend. The 6-foot-2, 225-pound senior said in a text message Monday evening that the visit hasn't been scheduled, but he added that he would "definitely" visit Tulane on Dec. 12. West Virginia is one of three programs in the lead in his recruitment. South Carolina and Louisville are the other two. Tulane, Central Florida, Marshall, Indiana and Alabama-Birmingham also have offered.
Stone Mountain linebacker Robert Nelson hopes to attend the South Carolina game against LSU on Saturday. “My top choice right now is South Carolina,” he said. “When I went to the ‘Gamecocks Showcase’ [prospect camp last summer], I fell in love with the coaching staff and the atmosphere.” Will Nelson commit to the Gamecocks this weekend? “I am holding off committing [to any school] just so I can weigh all my options and see who else offers.’ The 6-foot, 209-pound Nelson has nearly 30 offers on the table, including Tennessee, Auburn, South Carolina and West Virginia. “If I can’t make it to the South Carolina-LSU game, I will go to the next home game,” he said. “I kind of have an open invitation.” Nelson said Auburn is currently second on his list
McEachern tight end Terrell Mitchell, who has set up official visits to Georgia and West Virginia, was offered by Clemson. The 6-foot-6, 220-pound Mitchell said he spoke on the phone with Clemson recruiting coordinator and tight ends coach Billy Napier, who extended the offer. “Coach Napier just said they really wanted me, to come up to a game to meet all the coaches, and they would officially offer at that time,” Mitchell said. How does Mitchell feel about Clemson? “I really don’t know a lot about them, other than that they have a reputation for a strong defense.” Mitchell’s other offers are West Virginia, MIchigan and South Carolina. Georgia has promised an offer if Mitchell meets college entrance requirements. He takes the SAT for the first time next month
He didn’t grow up a Georgia fan, but Northview junior defensive tackle Denzel McCoy is still hoping for a scholarship offer from the Bulldogs. “Georgia is a great school and it’s close to home,” said McCoy, who will be at Sanford Stadium Saturday night to watch the Dogs play Alabama. “They offer a great education and have a winning program.” McCoy, who attended Saturday’s Mississippi State-Georgia Tech game in Atlanta, was born in North Carolina. He moved to Georgia during the second grade after calling Florida home for a brief period of time. The 6-foot-4, 270-pound lineman picked up a scholarship offer from Oregon earlier today. He already had offers from Alabama, Duke, Georgia Tech, Memphis, North Carolina, N.C. State, Penn State, Stanford, Vanderbilt and West Virginia. He’s eager to see if the Dogs will make their move this weekend when he attends the highly-anticipated SEC contest along with his parents. “I’d say it’s 50-50 that Georgia will offer me on Saturday,” said McCoy, who is being recruited by Bulldogs assistant coach Rodney Garner. “Hopefully, they will. I’ve been receiving a lot of e-mails and mail from them.”
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.
