McGee has connections to UGA

Brandon McGee is a Rivals250 athlete out of Lauderhill (Fla.) Plantation that could play a number of positions on the next level. He is one of the top prospects in the Sunshine State, and he is getting a lot of attention.

"I think I have 29 offers at the moment," said McGee. "Purdue, Central Florida, Illinois, and Minnesota are the most recent offers I have picked up."

29 offers is very impressive, but there are a couple others he would like to pick up before he begins the elimination process.

"I am not really being recruited by anyone that has yet to offer me, but I hope to get offered by Oklahoma and Virginia Tech. I have not heard anything from either one of them, but I have interest in both of those schools."

Only one school has been by since the spring evaluation began, but he expects the Plantation halls to be busy in the coming weeks.

"Central Florida is it so far, but I know Ohio State and Georgia are definitely coming this week, plus some other schools too. I think a lot of schools are going to be coming through soon."

The Rivals250 athlete lives right out of Miami, and the Canes put together a strong class in 2008, but McGee says he is no lock for the "U".

"I have an offer from them and it is great, but I would not say they are my dream school," he explained. "They are a great school and they have a great class, but I am going to look around and find the best place for me."

One of his many offers came from the University of Georgia and he has interest in the Dawgs.

"I definitely have interest in Georgia," he admitted. "I honestly like them a lot. I have been keeping up with them since they signed Jeff Owens from my school a few years ago."

Owens has been starting at defensive tackle for UGA the last couple of years and he has told McGee a lot about UGA.

"We talk a lot and he says good things about Georgia. He tells me if he had to do it all over again, then he would do the same thing. He said it is a great program with great coaches. I definitely think it is one of the top schools."

Another thing the powerful SEC program has going for them is their new hire from FSU in John Lilly. Coach Lilly was already recruiting McGee for the Seminoles before the change and that now helps the Dawgs.
