Georgia Tech is first offer for Loganville OL Morgan Bailey



Georgia Tech is offer No. 1 for Morgan Bailey

Georgia Tech is the first school to offer Loganville offensive lineman Morgan Bailey. He got to sit down and talk with Jackets coach Paul Johnson.

“[Johnson] said they were ready for me to have the scholarship offer, and that they think I can play there,” Bailey said. “He told me to take my time to think about it. He didn’t pressure me into anything. He told me how the scholarship works. I’m excited.”

The 6-foot-5, 283-pound Bailey wants to see a few more places before making his college decision. He attended UGA’s Junior Day, and has also attracted attention from Auburn, Vanderbilt, Duke, and Georgia Southern. Bailey visited Georgia Tech on Friday for practice, but it got rained out and he ended up talking with Johnson for around an hour.

Bailey will be a key blocker for Loganville teammate Storm Johnson, one of the state’s top tailbacks.

    If you see want to see the best O-line in the state, then look at North Gwinnett, not Loganville or Brookwood or Peachtree Ridge. JJames and AShephard set a county record for pancake blocks last year.

    Georgia Tech also may the last offer for this kid. He better commit to CPJ yesterday. If UGA hasn’t offered him, he can’t be good.

    We know how UGA recruits O linemen. That’s why they let two of the best in the state get away to Tennessee a couple years ago. That is also why their downfall the past couple seasons has been O line. They should offer this guy and any other O linemen in the state to get over the bad o line excuse.

    Are you serious? Usually it’s the Tech fans that applaud at the accomplishment that UGA fans can count. Get it right.

    SugarHillDawg, you are a disgrace to UGA for your comments. I wish you could meet my brother, UGA accounting graduate, who can cut people down with humor, not stupid sophmoric statements like yours. Go back to your own board if you can’t play nice.
