UGA’s top football recruit is being courted by Alabama. And he’s listening. The marquee recruit is Derrick Henry, the 5-star running back from Yulee, Fla., who committed to UGA last summer. He is ranked as one of the top three players out of Florida. Alabama dispatched assistant Burton Burns to Henry’s high school on Monday. It went so well that Henry sent a tweet out later that day that ignited a frenzy in the Bulldog nation.
If that didn’t cause widespread panic among UGA fans, Henry had this to say the next day to Scout.com’s Andrew Bone: “I started talking to my coach. We had a serious talk. We talked about the positives of Alabama. We feel like Alabama is the place to go … I am not saying my coaches are swaying me to go to Alabama. They are not doing that at all. We are just laying out everything. The fact Alabama has coach Saban and all the things they bring to the table really sticks out to me.” [More]
