Four major UGA target have announced that they will be signing early on Wednesday
Cade Mays (Knoxville Catholic High School in Tennessee), Micah Parsons (Harrisburg High School in Pennsylvania), Jamaree Salyer (Atlanta’s Pace Academy) and Brenton Cox (Stockbridge High School) will be signing with their future school on Wednesday, December 20th, the first day of the early signing period.
Mays is a 5-star offensive tackle, Parsons a 5-star defensive end, Salyer ranks as a 5-star offensive guard and Cox is rated as a 5-star defensive end.
Mays will be deciding between Clemson, Georgia and Tennessee. The Knoxville native decommitted from the Volunteers last month and reopened his recruitment. Georgia and Clemson appear to be in the lead for the 5-star prospect.
Mays is signing at his school in Knoxville, TN on Wednesday.
Parsons has a more complicated list, though only a few schools seem to still have a good chance. Parsons’ top 6 include Penn State, Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Ohio State. Penn State was once considered the heavy favorite to land Parsons, but after a visit to Athens over the weekend, UGA is making a strong push.
He ranks as the nation’s top rated defensive end, 5th overall player in the country and best player in the state of Pennsylvania.
Georgia’s hot streak may get even hotter with Sunday’s announcement of Pace Academy’s (Atlanta) five-star guard Jamaree Salyer, that he’ll make his college decision between the Bulldogs and Clemson on December 20.
Salyer is critical for the Dawgs. With Georgia trying to keep top recruits home and protect its borders, signing Salyer would send a strong signal.
Salyer was in Athens this weekend for his tenth-plus trip to UGA. He is the No.1 rated offensive lineman in the country and the No. 3 overall recruit from the state of Georgia.
After an official visit to Athens over the weekend weekend, five-star Stockbridge High (Lithonia, GA) strong-side defensive end Brenton Cox is trending for the Bulldogs. Cox, who de-committed from Ohio State 2 weeks ago, is seen as a strong Georgia lean by the recruiting services, followed by the Buckeyes and Alabama.
During his junior and senior season at Stockbridge, Cox collected 117 tackles, 17.5 tackles for a loss and 23 quarterback sacks. The 6-foot-5, 247-pounds athlete is the nation’s 22nd overall prospect, the state’s No.5 prospect and is ranked as the nation’s No. 2 strong-side defensive end.
