Defensive end Brandon Willis of Byrnes (S.C.), who was offered by UGA last summer, has the Bulldogs in his top five, according to GoUpstate.com.
The 6-foot-4, 250-pounder also lists Florida State, North Carolina, LSU, and California. Willis says he is considering all offers, but does not have hometown favorites South Carolina or Clemson among his current list of finalists.
Willis visited Tennessee last weekend. “I got to meet the Kiffins (Monte and Lane) and [recruiting coordinator] Ed Orgeron,” Willis told GoUpstate. “They’re really enthusiastic. We saw the team meeting and what the players go through. It was really cool.”
Byrnes High also has Marcus Lattimore, who is a candidate to be the nation’s top tailback. Lattimore has a UGA offer and made an unofficial visit to Athens last week.
