Playing host to Georgia Southern was not quite the marquee matchup that drew a lot of recruits to Athens, Ga., this past Saturday, but two of the prospects that took in Georgia’s 45-14 win wound up being the talk of the town.
South Carolina cornerback commit Brendan Langley (Marietta, Ga./Kell) visited Georgia yet again. For those keeping count, the ESPN 300 defensive back has made the short trek to Athens for four of Georgia’s six home games. After the Ole Miss game on Nov. 3, Langley told DawgNation that he mainly visited because Georgia was close and it “was something to do.” But Langley also went to Auburn last week to see the Tigers host the Bulldogs. That trip raised eyebrows, as he has not mentioned Auburn as a likely destination. Returning to Athens on the heels of cornerback Steven Nelson’s (Warner Robins, Ga./College of Sequoias) decommitment from the Bulldogs last week also seems telling.
Langley’s best friend is teammate and Georgia safety commit Quincy Mauger. Both have spoken extensively about playing together in college. Langley maintains he is still “100 percent committed to South Carolina,” but his actions bear watching. He also plans to take an official visit to Georgia in the future.
The other visitor to Georgia that turned heads on the sideline before the game was ESPN 150 athlete Tramel Terry (Goose Creek, S.C./Gosse Creek). One of Georgia’s highest-rated recruits, Terry has taken a few visits to Clemson in the past month. He shut down communication with the media, and his coach, Chuck Reedy, said Terry was seriously considering the Tigers. Returning to Athens on Saturday with an official visit yet to be taken was a good sign for Georgia’s chances of hanging onto the four-star talent.
