Dunwoody's King says knee is healing

2:01 p.m. Thursday, October 2, 2008

The knee injury that has kept Dunwoody linebacker Jerry King on the sideline this season won’t keep him out much longer, and he says it also hasn’t kept college recruiters from calling on him. The 6-foot, 225-pound senior expects to be back in a couple of weeks for fourth-ranked (in AAA) Dunwoody. The Wildcats are idle this week. King tore the ACL in his right knee during team workouts in May and had surgery to repair it in July. He thought he’d be ready to start the season, but he has stayed out for more rehab at the urging of team doctor Eric Steenlage. King says he doesn’t feel any pain in the knee, and hasn’t for a while, but decided to take the safer route for his return to the field. He said that recruiters have assured him that they’re still interested, despite the injury. He has not received any offers, but Wofford and Middle Tennessee State contact him nearly every week. He said Delaware, Tulane, Ball State, Central Florida and Tennessee State also have more than passing interest. “They’ve been very supportive of me,” King said of recruiters.

Peachtree DB Norman staying busy with visits

10:43 p.m. Wednesday, September 17, 2008

Following a successful trip to the Ohio University last weekend, Peachtree Ridge cornerback Connor Norman is eager to visit the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga on Saturday and Wofford next month. Norman, who has a scholarship offer from Army, was impressed with Ohio coach Frank Solich and his program. “He’s a nice guy and a great coach,” said Norman, an AJC’s The Georgia Top 150 selection. “And I like the school and campus there.” Norman is also being courted by Furman and several Ivy League programs. It’s too soon for him to consider committing to Army. “That is definitely an option,” he said. “I’m not counting it out.”
