Could UGA add another commitment on Tuesday?
That is a possibility after UGA DB commit Tray Matthews put this on Twitter on late Monday night:
“Another Uga commit tomorrow! 2k13 we here !!”
Now it may or may not happen, but when Matthews puts something like that on Twitter, you have to consider the possibility.
After all, Matthews has been committed to UGA for more than a year and is pretty plugged in with the Bulldogs coaches with what’s going on in the recruiting world. Matthews, who is a senior safety at Newnan High School, also is pretty popular among other recruits and communicates with them on a regular basis, particularly those on the defensive side.
Perhaps most importantly, Matthews has made comments like this before on Twitter about impending UGA commitments – and he turned out to be correct a few times. To follow Tray on Twitter (and see if he gives any more hints), please CLICK HERE.
So which prospect might Tray Matthews be talking about? Just about every UGA fan would dream it would be Reuben Foster, the 4-star linebacker who is committed to Auburn but still flirting some with UGA and is best buddies with Matthews.
Then there’s Brendan Langley, the 4-star DB from Kell High School who is committed to South Carolina. Langley is also flirting with UGA, and has attended recent games with the Bulldogs. He confirmed to the AJC on Monday night that he will take official visits to both South Carolina and UGA, although he hasn’t set dates for them.
Then there’s a new name on the radar, safety Kennar Johnson of Mississippi’s Gulf Coast junior college. The 6-foot-2, 190-pounder is scheduled to take an official visit to UGA this weekend, and told UGASports.com’s Jake Rowe that he could commit right after the trip. His top three is South Florida, Ole Miss and UGA.
Finally, Jonathan Rumph, a 6-foot-5 WR from Mississippi’s Holmes junior college, told 247sports.com’s Rusty Mansell that he “may” decide this week. Rumph claims offers from UGA, Ole Miss, Tennessee and Texas Tech, among others.
Or maybe no one commits on Tuesday? What do you think? And who could it be?

AROUND THE SOUTHEAST: Former Clemson DE commitment Elijah Daniel of Avon, Ind., told Palmetto Sports on Monday night that he was contacted by Clemson assistant Brent Venables earlier in the day to let him know he no longer had an offer from the Tigers. “They really didn’t feel like I should take other visits,” Daniel told the website. “It’s disappointing but they had to do what they had to do.” Daniel had taken official visits to Marshall and Mississippi State, and may go to Ole Miss this weekend … Milton High School DE Carl Lawson, who is committed to Auburn and ranked as the nation’s No. 2 overall prospect by ESPN, hasn’t decided whether or not he will take official visits to other schools.
