Miami and South Florida are some of the schools that have expressed heavy interest in Zack Witchett, who had his UGA football scholarship recently revoked after being committed to the Bulldogs last summer.
Georgia withdrew Witchett’s scholarship offer on Jan. 5 — less than a month away from signing day — due to undisclosed off-the-the-field issues. (Click here for more details)
“Zack was upset about not going to Georgia, but I think he’s moved on,” said Booker T. Washington coach Stanley Pritchett. “He’s able to move on because other schools have called since [they heard the news]. He’s really encouraged about his situation.”
Witchett, who is being recruited at both wide receiver and cornerback, returned from an official visit to South Carolina State on Sunday. South Florida and Appalachian State are among the many other schools that have called, and Pritchett expects more when classes start back on Tuesday.
Miami assistant Micheal Barrow met with Pritchett to review film and the surrounding circumstances, and said the Hurricanes want to schedule an official visit within the next couple of weeks.
“Miami wants to bring him down, really get to know the kid, and then decide about a scholarship offer,” Pritchett said.
“I think Zack’s situation will have a happy ending. It won’t be at Georgia, but it will be somewhere.”
