There's one defense end on the Lawrenceville (Ga.) Grayson football team that garners national headlines, but the guy who lines up at the other defensive end spot has shown this season that he's not exactly chopped liver. Two-star Arizona commit Jack Banda has had his share of highlights this season playing alongside the nation's No. 1 player Robert Nkemdiche.
Banda recently took a trip to Tuscon to see Arizona's big victory over USC and came back to Georgia raving about the experience.
"I was there for the USC game and that was really good," he said. "It was crazy and an awesome win and a great atmosphere."

Banda committed to the Wildcats back in June and hasn't waned since. He's yet to schedule his official visit, but he said he's only be taking one trip.
"My official will probably be in January," he said. "But it will be my only official visit to any school."
Banda won't be playing in his team's playoff game this week after he was ejected from last Thursday's game against rival Archer (Ga.) for throwing a punch.
A dejected Banda said after the game that he regretted his actions and was disappointed in himself for losing his cool.
"Their tackle was holding me all night and my coach's warned me not to lose my call," he said. "It was a mistake and I shouldn't have done it."
