Georgia LB/safety wakes up to first offer

ATLANTA -- The Rising Seniors program provides a substantial learning experience for nearly 100 of the top football players in Georgia following their junior season. The Georgia Junior Bowl, the all-star game at the end of the week, also gives the student-athletes a chance to showcase their abilities to college coaches across the country. Outside linebacker/safety Khalia Hackett (Douglasville, Ga./South Paulding) has already seen his participation pay off, and it happened with a wake-up call.
