Georgia is making a late run at UCLA commit Myles Jack and since he lived in that state for more than a decade, there seems to be sufficient interest that an official visit could be planned for this weekend.
Jack's mother, La Sonjia, said that Georgia running backs coach Bryan McClendon talked with her son on Wednesday to gauge his interest in the Bulldogs.
Jack, a four-star prospect who's been committed to the Bruins since June, apparently told McClendon there is legitimate interest, enough to work on a trip to Athens in the coming days. A visit has not yet been scheduled.

"He did talk to Myles and wanted to know if he was still interested, if he would still be interested in (Georgia) and maybe take a visit and Myles said yes," La Sonjia Jack said.
"He did offer Myles. There was an offer. Myles let him know he would be talking to me and they said they would be getting back to him but they haven't called back for the rest of the day. We haven't heard anything else about flights or trips or anything like that.
"He wanted to know if Myles was interested in possibly taking a trip and if his answer was yes then he'd get back to us. We are waiting for that."
Jack, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound prospect who played linebacker and running back at Bellevue, Wash., lived in Georgia for 12 years and has been in the state of Washington for the last four. He was a member of the Gwinnett Football League. It is not clear which position Georgia is recruiting Jack to play.
Georgia was on Myles' early list but after the Bulldogs had not offered the four-star moved on to other options which were many.
La Sonjia Jack said there is interest in Georgia and taking a visit this weekend is a strong possibility. She also wants to speak more with her son to find out exactly what he's thinking about his recruitment.
"They were on our list early on because it was Georgia," La Sonjia Jack said.
"A little late to the party but nevertheless they're at the party. Myles and I will have more discussions about it later but it's always been one of the schools he's been interested in."
UCLA coach Jim Mora is expected for an in-home visit Tuesday night. Jack visited Washington this past weekend and La Sonjia Jack said she would talk more with Myles about where the Huskies stand in his recruitment.
