Road Trip: Northview junior DT McCoy to visit Athens

11:15 p.m. Thursday, September 25, 2008

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

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.

By engineering Gainesville to a 2-0 start, the Red Elephants’ Blake Sims has quickly established himself as one of the premier junior quarterbacks in the state. Evidence of his status with college recruiters can be found in his mailbox each day. “I’ve been getting a lot of letters lately from schools like Georgia, Florida, West Virginia, Tennessee and Georgia Tech,” he said. “They all want me to come and visit and check things out.” Sims will take the Volunteers up on their invitation this weekend. “I’ll be visiting Tennessee on Saturday [when the Vols host UAB],” said Sims, who attended a scrimmage in Knoxville last month. “I’ll be going with some friends. “I’m just trying to find a school that is a good fit for me.” If Tennessee winds up offering Sims, their major competition could come from SEC-rival Georgia. “I would love to sign with Georgia,” Sims said. “Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve wanted to be a bulldog. I’m a diehard Georgia fan, and I like [Georgia coach] Mark Richt a lot. “I’d like to spend four years playing football for him.”
