Georgia Bulldogs Recruiting: Dawgs’ Top Two Targets Late for Official Visits
Lorenzo Carter was late showing up for his official visit in Athens, Ga. because he had to win a basketball game first. As David Friedlander of the Gwinnett Daily Post tells the story:
Experience told Lorenzo Carter not to panic when he missed the first of two free throws in a tie game with 1.9 seconds left to play in Norcross’ Region 7-AAAAAA clash with Peachtree Ridge.
That experience served him well as the 6-foot-6 senior calmly sank the second free throw to lift the Blue Devils to a 59-58 win Friday night at Peachtree Ridge.
Carter kept it a little more simplistic on the Tweets:
Carter has routinely chose to play in basketball games even at the expense of delaying official visits, so his lateness is understood and was likely accounted for in advance.
More troubling, however, is the situation with Wesley Green. Green, a star defensive back who is down to Georgia and South Carolina, told Michael Carvell of the AJC, “I don’t think I will be able to go to Georgia, I have a family emergency. I wanted to go but something happened with my (family).”
Green is hoping to make it to Athens on Saturday or Sunday but plans are still very much up in the air. Obviously, a a visit could have gone a long way in swinging the Bulldogs into the leading spot for his services, but rather than speculate too much on the long-term impact let’s just hope all is well with his family.
