Twin brothers George and Atkinson (Livermore, Calif./Granada) have their first two official visits set for the next two weekends. This weekend they'll head to the Midwest to take in one of the best rivalries in all of college sports. George Atkinson is a versatile athlete with the potential to play receiver, running back or safety. He prefers the offensive side of the ball but his size (6-foot-2, 195 pounds), speed and overall athleticism probably project best in college as a safety. His father is former Oakland Raider legend George Atkinson Sr., who combined with Jack Tatum to form one of the most intimidating safety tandems of the '70s. "Me and Josh are going to Notre Dame this weekend," George Atkinson said. "I'm excited because they're playing Michigan and I've never been to South Bend before. I know the atmosphere is going to be crazy there and I'm really looking forward to getting out there.
