Wide receiver AJ Liddell, who is committed to Maryland, is on UGA’s recruiting radar.
The 6-foot-4, 195-pounder said he talked with UGA recruiting coordinator Rodney Garner after the Bulldogs recently lost a commitment at wide receiver, with Flowery Branch’s CJ Curry flipping from UGA to Oklahoma State.
“I was surprised to hear from Georgia; I thought they were done recruiting at wide receiver,” Liddell told the AJC. “Coach Garner said he likes the way I play wide receiver. He said I have the size and speed they are looking for, and that they like how I catch difficult balls. They didn’t offer me a scholarship or anything. He pretty much just wanted to let me know that they are paying attention to me.”
What if UGA offered? “I don’t know, I’m committed to Maryland. Georgia is a good school, I’d listen to what they had to say.”
Other schools are still actively recruiting Liddell, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.48 seconds and has a 3.0 GPA. He recently got written scholarship offers from Vanderbilt and UConn, among others. Liddell said he talks to Maryland every other week, and plans to attend a Terrapins game next month.
Liddell started his senior season at Chapel Hill High School, but said he transferred to Westlake last week after his family moved. Liddell said Westlake officials told him that he can begin practicing with the team on Tuesday and that he will be eligible to play later this week.
