BIRDLAND – East Carolina wide receiver Dwayne Harris and Georgia linebacker Akeem Dent are among the group 35 players that the Falcons are hosting today in Flowery Branch for the teams’ “local day.”
“This is a pretty good group here,” general manager Thomas Dimitroff said. “I’m looking forward to watching these guys. There are some very talented football players in the state of Georgia across the board at all positions.”
In addition to the local day, the Falcons will use all of their 30 visits from players around the country. Wide receivers Jerrel Jernigan (Troy) and Torrey Smith (Maryland) visited on Monday and Tuesday. Defensive back Marcus Gilchrist (Clemson) was in on Wednesday.
“We’ll get a chance to get them back on the grease boards with the coordinators and the position coaches,” Dimitroff said.
