Tucker, Ga., three-star defensive end Brandon Lang has said for the last few months that Florida State and Georgia are his top two teams. The Noles have offered a scholarship and the Dawgs have yet to at this point, but could that be changing this weekend when Lang makes an unofficial visit to Athens for UGA’s game against Middle Tennessee State?
“I’m hoping to see (Georgia assistant) coach (Rodney) Garner,” Lang, who is 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds, said. “I can’t wait to talk to him again in person and see where I stand with them.”
So what would happen if he received that offer from the Dawgs?
“I’d hopefully commit,” Lang, ranked as the nation’s No. 18 strongside defense end, said. “They want to see how I played early in the season, and I hopefully did enough in the first game to open their eyes up even further.”
Lang had two sacks and five tackles in Tucker’s 36-21 victory over Griffin. He’s hoping to repeat the performance against St. Pius this Friday night.
“They’re a small private school,” he said.
But if he doesn’t get the offer from UGA this weekend or doesn’t pledge, it doesn’t mean he won’t have other options. So far this week, he’s talked to schools like Louisville, Ole Miss, Arkansas and he’s even missed a few new schools like LSU.
“I’ve missed LSU a bunch of times,” he said. “I see them calling on my caller ID.”
