Kell safety starting to get big offers

Though most schools have many spots left in their 2010 recruiting classes, the 2011 kids are starting to receive their offers. One standout player in the state of Georgia in the 2011 class is safety Brian Randolph from Kell High School in Marietta.

Randolph spent time this summer camping with both in-state schools Georgia and Georgia Tech. The Bulldogs gave Randolph one of his first verbal offers following their camp.

"Georgia started showing interest just before spring football began and coach Stacy Searels came to visit," Randolph said. "Georgia offered me just after the camp. Coach Willie Martinez offered me and he said he likes me as a person and a player and I would fit well at Georgia."

Randolph's father was a Bulldog, but not one from Athens.

"I grew up a fan of Mississippi State that is where my dad went to school," he said. "I like the Georgia coaches and their football program. They are recruiting me at safety. The coaches are really nice and it seems like they care about the athletes."

Randolph also attended Georgia Tech's camp as well, but he did not get an offer from the coaching staff during the visit.

"I like Georgia Tech and the coaches are good. They were talking about offering," Randolph said. "I know Jonathan Dwyer and my brother Justin Randolph goes to school there as well."

The elder Randolph began summer workouts recently and he is expected to contribute on special teams this season for the Yellow Jackets.

"Justin just got to Georgia Tech recently and he is a preferred walk-on as a wing back," Randolph said.

Randolph has two other SEC offers so far. He thinks his skills will bring in more offers.

"Tennessee and Vanderbilt have also given me verbal offers," Randolph said. "I like to hit hard and that makes me standout. I am going to camp at Tennessee soon."

Connecting with the coaching staff is going to be very important when it is time for his decision.

"I want to see if the positional coach is cooler or if he is crazy," he said.
