One of the top performers at the Athens NIKE Camp last Saturday, Clinton (La.) cornerback Prentiss Waggner, hold a scholarship offer from a Big Ten program and is getting plenty of heavy interest from a number of Southeastern Conference schools.
"I picked up an offer from the University of Minnesota and Auburn, Ole Miss, LSU and Florida all are recruiting me pretty hard," he said. "I don't have a favorite and I am beginning to like Georgia some now."
New offensive coordinator Gary Crowton is recruiting Waggner for the in-state Tigers.

"(LSU) is cool," he said. "It's at home and I know everybody and the coaching staff there."
One thing stands out in terms of importance for the 6-foot-2, 178-pound cornerback.
"I want to live in a city," he said. "I am from the country, so I want to stay in a city and get around a lot of people."
Waggner has no visits planned as of now.
Waggner impressed with outstanding physical testing numbers at the Baton Rouge NIKE Combine in January. Waggner had a 37-inch vertical leap and a 4.5 second 40-yard dash. Last Saturday, he made the long drive up to Athens to compete in the NIKE Camp on Saturday and was one of the most impressive prospects there, earning co-MVP honors at defensive back.
"It went good," he said. "I got a couple of reps in. I got ten reps, had two picks and only got beat one time."
