One player transferred into Martin Luther King High School in Lithonia, Ga., as one of the top pass rushers in the Southeast. The other, already at MLK, was the most productive returning wideout in Georgia.
Both camped in Athens this summer in hopes of earning the coveted offer from the University of Georgia.
For outside linebacker Kenderius Whitehead, the offer came in June as the former Monroe Area High defensive end impressed at the Mark Richt Camp. For wide receiver Blake Tibbs, the offer came three weeks ago as he began another dominating season. Now as the two become close friends, they must decide if they want to make the in-state dream offer a reality.
