John Atkins, Leonard Floyd to enroll at UGA in May

Dale Zanine-US PRESSWIRE

Two Georgia recruits who were thought to be enrolling early have to wait a few more months.

Two Georgia Bulldogs football recruits who were believed to be enrolling in the school in January will now have to wait until May. As reported by Michael Carvell of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, defensive tackle John Atkins and linebacker Leonard Floyd both have more academic work to finish before enrolling in college.

Both players from Virginia's Hargrave military prep school were expected to be among 17 Georgia early enrollees and begin classes on Jan. 7. That number is now down to 15. Up to 10 early enrollees can count toward last season's signing numbers, thereby allowing Georgia to go around the SEC's 25-man limit for signing classes.

As Carvell writes, both Atkins and Floyd signed with Georgia last year, but transferred to the prep school to raise their academic standing to meet the standards at Georgia. They were close to doing just that, but each has to stay just a little while longer.
