LORENZO CARTER
By Stephen Black
Norcross DE to decide between UGA, Gators

 

After winning two state championships at Norcross and being recruited by

some of the top programs in the country, Lorenzo Carter will decide Wednesday where the next step in his life will take him. Carter has been ranked by most recruiting services as one of the top players in not only the state of Georgia, but also the country. 

 

Carter originally favored Florida and many thought Alabama had a good chance of signing the 6-foot-5 240-pound defensive end, as the Tide had signed Adrian Hubbard and Alvin Kamara in recent years from the Gwinnett school. Florida State and LSU have lurked in the background of Carter's recruitment as well.

However, Carter visited Georgia over the weekend and the thought by many is that he is leaning to the Bulldogs. His mother expressed concern in an interview with Michael Carvell of the AJC that Georgia did not yet have an outside linebackers coach (where Carter will line up in Athens), but otherwise seemed to bond with Mark Richt and new Bulldogs defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt. Many close to the situation believe Carter will sign with the Bulldogs.

 

Carter had 125 tackles and six sacks his senior year with the Blue Devils and runs an impressive 4.6 in the 40-yard dash. He received offers from pretty much all of the top programs in the nation, from Stanford to Ohio State and Notre Dame to Texas, as well as the aforementioned programs. Carter will announce his decision at 3:30 Wednesday on ESPNU.

childhood favorite, longtime suitors

Williams has not gone unnoticed by major college football programs. That is until recently. While Clemson, Auburn and several other BCS conference programs have been all over the 6-foot-4, 260-pound defensive end, the Georgia Bulldogs, Williams' childhood favorites, were a bit slow to seriously pursue him. But with a new defensive staff that has been in Athens for mere weeks, the Dawgs have been breathing down Williams' neck.

 

And he has responded. While it was thought Williams would decide between the pair of orange-clad Tigers, Georgia has crept into the mix and is thought to be a major player here.

 

Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt and defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt have reportedly bonded with Williams already and the former ELCA Charger likes what he is hearing about coming off the edge in Pruitt's scheme.

 

While Williams visited Clemson the weekend of Jan. 17 and Auburn the following weekend, he made his final official trip to Athens. It is usually a good sign for the final program that receives a visit from an undecided prospect. Williams obviously had more time to bond with the Clemson and Auburn staffs, but he grew up wanting to play for Georgia, so that gives the Bulldogs a decent shot to land Williams.

 

This is one of those "blue-chippers" that college football fans flood the internet for on National Signing Day. No doubt there will be high drama in McDonough just after 2 p.m. when Williams makes his decision.

BRYSON ALLEN-WILLIAMS
By Craig Sager II
Cedar Grove star seems set on Gamecocks

 

Bryson Allen-Williams is a 6-foot-1, 225-pound outside linebacker from Cedar Grove High School that is ranked as the No. 6 outside linebacker in the country by 247sports and the No. 7 overall prospect in the state of Georgia. Allen-Williams capped off a wild week and tug-of-war between South Carolina and Georgia by announcing his commitment to the Gamecocks and his intent to sign with them today.

 

Allen-Williams was pegged as a top prospect heading into his senior season after an incredible 16-sack junior season, but it was not until his appearance in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in January that the DeKalb County product lit the fuse on one of the most competitive recruiting battles this year. An in-home visit by UGA head coach Mark Richt caused the linebacker to take a pause before making his decision, but ultimately he stuck with South Carolina. Out of respect for both schools, Allen-Williams announced on Monday that he would head to Columbia, S.C. so that both schools could move on and focus on the final days before National Signing Day and that UGA could look elsewhere.

 

The strength of Allen-Williams' game is his ability to fight off blockers and fly to the football. These skillsets could make him an immediate special teams contributor when he arrives in Columbia and ultimately an all-conference linebacker that can cover the pass, stuff the run and add a dangerous pass rush dynamic to the defense.

Glazier Clinics

Glazier's road to winning

 

At Glazier Clinics, we say, "The road to winning goes through Glazier Clinics."

 

If you're a winning coach who attends our clinics, we certainly don't want to take credit away from you. We know how hard you work to build a winning program. You've earned every single W. 

 

Our job is to put together clinics and online resources to assist you in your quest to grow as a coach and to win more, no matter what your record is right now. These priorities drive our relentless effort to provide you the best in football education: 

 

Top-notch Speakers

To speak at the Glazier Clinics, a coach has to have a history of success and a plan for getting there. Furthermore, he has to know how to deliver that message to you. 

 

We take your feedback seriously and only invite back the speakers whom you rate highly. We also strive for variety, inviting different speakers to each location each year. 

 

The Most Content

We pack more than 100 sessions into every weekend clinic. Pulling that off means we run up to seven sessions at any given time. At our 150 clinics, we cover 12 topics at an unprecedented depth, utilizing the expertise of high school and small college coaches. 

 

Our goal is for you to bring your whole coaching staff to the clinics, then have each coach attend the sessions that match his role and interests. Staff planning time becomes much more powerful when each coach can contribute and discuss fresh ideas from his area. 

 

The Real X's and O's of Football

Our founder, Frank Glazier, made sure that his speakers got down brass tacks so that coaches could take home useable ideas that would improve their teams' performance. That's still top priority today. You won't hear any booster speeches at the Glazier Clinics, and you will take home a notepad full of X's and O's. Plus, you can download more than 1,200 sets of clinic speaker notes at Glazier Clinic Online. 

 

High-Energy Weekends that Amp your Staff Dynamics

When we plan our clinics, we don't stop with putting together a great speaker schedule. We also consider the venue, and we choose locations where you and your staff can have a getaway experience that boosts camaraderie and teamwork. We hope you'll book some rooms at the clinic hotel, be on site for every session and spend some powerhouse time kicking around new ideas and planning your upcoming season together. 

 

2 Atlanta Clinics

This year, Glazier will host two clinics in Atlanta: 

Atlanta Clinic

 

February 7-9 

Renaissance Atlanta Waverly hotel 

Atlanta 150 Clinic

 

March 7-9

Westin Atlanta Perimeter North

Bring your whole staff to both for one low price of $369. Individual passes are also available. 

 

Georgia Winners Know...

 

Head Coach Kyle Hockman of McEachern High School says it well: "Glazier Clinics is one of the staples of our coaching lives... The season pass enables us to go to numerous clinics at a great value. We have cut down the cost of our off-season learning, but doubled the amount of information."
