Weekend visitor report

Pulaski Academy (Little Rock, Ark.) tight end Hunter Henry is likely Georgia's top target at the tight end position for 2013, and the former Cobb County resident is headed back to the Peach State to visit the Bulldogs for their annual G-Day Scrimmage.

The four star prospect finished his junior season with 64 catches for 1,091 yards and 16 touchdowns, and Henry's connections with the state of Georgia could help the Bulldogs chances in his recruitment.

"I know the area and I lived there for 10 or 11 years, so it definitely doesn't hurt Georgia," Henry told UGASports in March. "It's a cool place and I have talked to friends and heard from some friends out there recently. I have few friends from back in Georgia that will probably end up going to Georgia, so they tell me about everything."

The Rivals250 tight end has offers from over two dozen schools at this point, but Georgia looks to be a serious contender for his signature.

Could Bulldogs finish at cornerback?

It is not secret that cornerback is a major position of need for UGA, and the Bulldogs have recruited the position accordingly.

As it stands, the Georgia has four commitments on board that could contribute at cornerback in Steven Nelson (College of the Sequoias), Shaquille Wiggins (Sandy Creek), J.J. Green (Camden), and Tramel Terry (Goose Creek; Goose Creek, S.C.).

Two other cornerback targets, Reggie Wilkerson (North Marion; Citra, Fla.) and Brendan Langley (Kell), will be in town for G-Day, and both have listed the Bulldogs as their leader despite recent visits to other schools.

While some may consider it a long shot for either to commit this weekend, it isn't out of the questions for the Bulldogs to land both at a position where UGA intends to land as many as five.

Two big time receivers on campus

Two of the most sought after uncommitted prospects on UGA's campus this weekend will be wide receivers.

Uriah Lemay (Butler; Matthews, N.C.) and Demarre Kitt (Sandy Creek), a 2014 prospect, will both be on campus and both hold offers from some of the best programs in the southeast.

The Bulldogs look to have somewhat of an inside track on Lemay, as his brother, Christian Lemay, is a quarterback for the Georgia and the UGA staff has already built a strong relationship with the family. The four star prospect has also built a strong relationship with Georgia wide receivers' coach, Tony Ball.

Kitt has hinted over twitter multiple times in the last week that he will be committing to the Bulldogs soon, and the idea of a G-Day pledge for the star sophomore is quite possible.

More 2014 Representation

Kitt isn't the only 2014 prospect that will be in attendance for the Georgia spring scrimmage.

The Bulldogs will host St. Pius safety Nick Glass and Walton Academy running back Stanley Williams, both of whom are committed to the Bulldogs, and linebackers Josh Holton (Apalachee) and Khalil Gray (Hughes).

While many are focusing on the 2013 class with good reason, the Bulldogs have gotten an excellent head start on 2014 with some top talent already on board.
