Reflections on VID event

Kell defensive back Brendan Langley is one of the fastest rising stars in the country for 2013.

He got his first offer from UGA just a few weeks ago, and now he is approaching double digit offers with top SEC schools Florida and Alabama throwing their hat in the ring.

While many believe Langley is a defensive back at the next level, the Georgia staff surprised him a bit with their plans when he visited for UGA's Very Important Dawg event.

"They told me that they want me to be an impact player, and on both sides of the ball," said Langley. "They want me to be a Brandon Boykin-type of player, and that is exactly what I want. I didn't want to say anything or force the issue, but it is what I want."

Some thought Langley, who is a life long Georgia fan, might commit at the VID event, and while that didn't happen, he did leave with a top two.

"Georgia and Alabama are in the running to be my top school right now," he said. "Those are the top two."

Mustafaa top target?

Alpharetta defensive end Naim Mustafaa recently told UGASports that he just wants to rush the passer and that he was most comfortable in a 4-3 system as a defensive end.

He still wants to rush the passer, but his comfort level with Todd Grantham's 3-4 scheme seems to have changed since Mustafaa visited the Classic City for VID Day.

"I spent pretty much the whole time with Coach Grantham," he said. "He really knows what he is doing, and he showed me how they would use me. I understand it much better now, and I really like how they do things there."

Mustafaa also found out where he stands as an outside linebacker on Georgia's board.

"He told me that I am their top target at outside linebacker," said Mustafaa. "He told me that I am their number one guy there."

Kitt loved Athens

Sandy Creek 2014 wide receiver Demarre Kitt has what will seem like an eternity before he can sign with the school of his choice.

The 2012 National Signing Day just passed a little over a month ago, and Kitt won't sign until 2014.

But none of that matters to the Sandy Creek playmaker, however, as the Georgia staff is treating him like a top priority already. Kitt was scheduled to visit Clemson this weekend, but the Georgia coaches made it known that they wanted, in a bad way, him to attend their campus for VID Day.

"I was going to Clemson and all," he said. "But the Georgia coaches called and let my coaches know how badly they want me to come there. So I decided to make the trip."

Making the trip is only half the battle, and Georgia would have to do their part to impress the 2014 standout.

"It was a great visit, and I had a lot of fun," he said. "It was much different than a normal junior day because we got to spend more time with the coaches. We tried on the jerseys and all. It was great."

Kitt recently tweeted, as he was leaving a visit to Alabama, that he couldn't wait to get back to Athens, and his reasoning for the tweet is pretty simple.

"I really love visiting there," he said. "I just love the vibe I get from the coaches and the attention they show me. I like it there a lot."

Flu helps Dawgs?

Norcross running back Alvin Kamara had the misfortune of coming down with the flu on Friday, and had to cancel his visit to Clemson for their Junior Day event.

As luck would have it for Georgia, Kamara decided he felt good enough on Saturday morning to make the trip to the Classic City, and Kitt got the opportunity to spend some time with the four-star speedster.

"He was there," said Kitt regarding Kamara. "He got there a little late, but I hung out with him, Shaq (Wiggins), Tray Matthews, and those guys."
