Pitt, Colorado State in running to land South Florida linebacker

Donovan Georges (

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla -- Donovan Georges’ days of being part of Georgia’s 2018 class are long over. Today, the Hialeah (Fla.) Champagnat Catholic linebacker, who parted ways with UGA this spring, is metaphorical free agent. Has been for some time. He’s also a prospect with two official visit dates nearly set.

From here, Georges' intends to move quickly. “Colorado State and Pittsburgh are the two visits,” Georges said. “I’m setting them still. I don’t what dates they are off hand.”

According to Georges, FIU and USF are also likely to get visits and remain in the running for his commitment. It’s just that, at least for now, the Rams and Panthers are at the forefront of his mind.

“I want to see Pittsburgh because it’s my first time seeing it and experiencing it, Georges said. “I’ve never been to the school or the city. I think it’s gonna be great to see.”

Georges’ interest in Colorado State, however, is more football-based. Or so it seems, anyway. His discussion of the Rams’ program go straight to on-field topics.

“What stands out to me is that the coach told me that, for them, I’m no. 1,” Georges said. “I’m their No. 1 pick. I can come in there and be one of the best they have on the field.”

Georges is ranked as the No. 47 outside linebacker in the country. He spent a bulk of his junior year as a Georgia commit before partying ways with the program this summer.


-- “With Pittsburgh, it’s all starting to come together. Now they’re starting to talk to me like family I really like the way they play and they really like the way I play.”

--- “FIU is a good school. They have real good linebackers from what I’ve seen. That stands out to me.

-- “I’ll probably decide sometime in the middle of the season.”
