Kearney ready for Georgia visit

Tucker, Ga., linebacker Tavares Kearney made an official visit to South Carolina Jan. 7, followed by one to Ohio State the weekend of Jan. 15.
Asked about his trip to Ohio State, Kearney said, "It went pretty good. I enjoyed myself. It was a nice visit.
"Everything turned out to be pretty cool. I liked the players. I went to the stadium. I loved it. I liked the dorms. And the coaches were pretty cool.
"I've been to South Carolina and Ohio State, but I dropped South Carolina. I go to Georgia this weekend. That's possibly my last visit.
"My mother wants me to take another one, but I don't know. Maybe Florida, Oklahoma State, or Illinois. All of them offered me a scholarship.
"Right now Ohio State and Georgia are my top two. I can't say who I like best because I haven't been to Georgia yet."
The 6-foot-1 and 210 pound Kearney made 98 tackles, including 18 sacks, playing outside linebacker during his senior season. Kearney played a combination of linebacker and safety during his junior season and had eight sacks.
Kearney is the No. 37 outside linebacker prospect in the Rivals.com player rankings.
