Plant High School in Tampa, Fla., has been very good to the Georgia Bulldogs. Quarterback Aaron Murray was a star there as was his Panthers Bulldogs teammate Orson Charles. On Tuesday, safety Paris Bostick will announce his decision on where he will play college football and Georgia is hoping the Plant pipeline continues.
“I am going to announce my decision on Tuesday,” Bostick said. “We will have a ceremony or something like that. I know where I am going.”
The 6-foot-1, 217 pound strong safety just came off a visit to Georgia for Dawg Night. He enjoyed his time in Athens.
“The Georgia commits showed me a lot of love,” Bostick said. “It was a good vibe.”
Dawg Night already has been productive for the Bulldogs defense, regardless of what Bostick intends to announce.
Linebacker Shaun McGee (Lawrenceville, Ga./Brookwood) said he received an offer from UGA defensive coordinator Todd Grantham -- and that the Bulldogs top his list.
ESPN 150 defensive lineman Kelsey Griffin (Hoschton, Ga./Mill Creek) came to Dawg Night with the Bulldogs atop his list and left feeling the same way.
And five-star DB prospect Mackensie Alexander (Immokalee, Fla./Immokalee), ranked No. 6 overall in the ESPN 150, made an unexpected visit to Athens for Dawg Night. Alexander has an offer from Georgia but has not said much about the Bulldogs.
Defensive coordinator spoke early Friday about the impact that the Dawg Night event can have for the team and for prospective players.
“There’s a lot of things that go into evaluating a guy,” Grantham said. “It’s athletic ability, it’s how they take coaching when you’re out there and you’re directing them, it’s the tools that they have right now, just raw skills. And I think what you’ve got to do is you’ve got to take each individual guy and you’ve got to say from a vision standpoint, ‘What can this guy develop to be?’ “I think there’s a lot of factors that go into that and certainly an event like tonight helps you with your evaluation process, plus it allows you to showcase your program and the things you have to offer.”
