One of the top kickers in South Florida already has serious college options. Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Cardinal Gibbons kicker Blair Walsh has two early scholarship offers, from Georgia and West Virginia, and is interested in a number of other programs.
The Bulldogs have the early attention of Walsh, who is from head coach Mark Richt's hometown of Boca Raton, Fla.
"I received a scholarship offer from Georgia, they gave it to me over the phone," Walsh said. "I'm researching the UGA program. I know it's a great football program and it's a good school academically, so I have been looking into it. It's an intriguing place. It's very nice. I'd love to visit and get a feel for the atmosphere up there.
"I am very interested in Georgia."
The Mountaineers offered Walsh shortly after National Signing Day on Feb. 7.
"I haven't received much contact from West Virginia since then, so I don't know what their situation is with regards to me."
Walsh also is interested in Florida, California, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest.
"I'm looking for the best fit overall, the best academic program and the best environment," he said.
Walsh was 21-24 from inside of 48 yards and had a long kick of 57 during his junior season.
"I can kick it far and also kick it accurately," he said.
Walsh attended the Rivals.com Fort Lauderdale Junior Day on Feb. 18 at Northeast High in Oakland Park, Fla.
