Things just weren’t meant to be for Georgia and highly touted linebacker recruit Mohamed “Mo” Camara.
The 6-foot-2 Camara is a committed South Carolina recruit that was scheduled to visit Georgia on Saturday for an unofficial visit. On his way to watch the Bulldogs blow out Florida Atlantic this past weekend Camara apparently had some car trouble. The West Forsyth High School product decided to cancel the trip after getting a flat tire.
It’s really no sweat of Mo’s back, though. He’s already committed to the Ol’ Ball Coach and has been since the Gamecocks offered him las spring. He’s 100 percent committed to South Carolina and hasn’t really been spending time talking to very many other teams. He’s also received offers from Wake Forest, Central Florida and Middle Tennessee State.
No wonder he hasn’t been talking to very many other squads with an offer list like that. South Carolina is the clear run-a-way choice in his situation. Florida State and Auburn have expressed some interest but haven’t gave him an offer like USC.
South Carolina has 20 commits for its 2013 class, including eight that come from the state of Georgia. They signed 12 prospects from Georgia the previous year, most likely ticking off UGA head coach Mark Richt. They still have a pretty solid defense down there in Athens anyway.
UGA defensive coordinator Todd Grantham probably wasn’t too thrilled when he receive Camara’s text Saturday that he wasn’t going to make the game.
The flat tire excuse is always a good one though.
