NEWS & NOTES: Booker was offered by UGA back in the spring, and he is a prospect that could end up playing either at SDE or DT given his size and frame. Booker excels on the field and also off the field in the class room and will have his pick of schools to go to, but the Baltimore, MD big man looks to be favoring Notre Dame and Stanford at the moment.

NEWS & NOTES: Oladele was offered by UGA back in February, and he visited Georgia for G-Day on 04/22. He had been committed to FSU but de-committed from the Noles on May 6th. After he de-committed, Oladele camped and visited again at UGA on June 2nd. He also camped and visited at Alabama, Auburn, Miami and Tennessee over the summer. He was considered a potential Ole Miss lean, but since Hugh Freeze’s firing and the upheaval at the school with the NCAA penalities bearing down on the program, one would think they are no longer considered here.
