We all know who won the football game. Someone posts “45-42″ at the bottom of nearly every recruiting article, even if it has nothing to do with Georgia Tech or Georgia.
But who will win the head-to-head recruiting battle between the two archrivals? That has been really hard to say so far because Georgia Tech and Georgia haven’t really fought it out with recruits this year. Now both have offered the same player, i.e. Alabama lineman William Ming (committed to Alabama), Norcross defensive back Prince Kent (Miami), Buford lineman Dallas Lee (UGA), etc. But Georgia and Georgia Tech have yet to be the two finalists for any in-state prospect, which is bizarre when you look around and see classic recruiting wars between Auburn and Alabama, South Carolina and Clemson, and all the Florida schools. It’s like comparing apples to oranges.
However, we may finally have some “apples to apples” after Georgia offered Miller Grove wide receiver Stephen Hill over the weekend. Hill liked Georgia a lot earlier this year, but was never offered. He ended up committing to Georgia Tech. Now Georgia is back at his doorstep, and this time they have the scholarship papers in hand.
If the speedy Hill accepts an official visit to Georgia, then we may finally have one of the head-to-head recruiting battles that everyone was anticipating all along. And a lot of “1-0″ posts at the bottom of future recruiting articles.
