Georgia Football Recruiting: Bulldogs back in hunt for Brendan Langley

After committing to the South Carolina Gamecocks last month, four-star defensive back Brendan Langley is now giving the Georgia Bulldogs a second look. The high school senior from Marietta, Ga., verbally committed to South Carolina in August, but he is interested in attending a school that will allow him to be a two-sport athlete and compete in both football and basketball.

Last weekend, Langley made an unofficial visit to Athens to watch the Bulldogs dismantle Vanderbilt. While on campus, he had a discussion with men's basketball coach Mark Fox about playing point guard at the university. That conversation seemed to re-ignite his interest in the school, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

"Yes, the basketball opportunity really helps out Georgia – that's the only reason they're back in it at all," Langley told the AJC. "If it weren't for the basketball, I don't think I'd be looking at them like this. I mean, I'm committed to South Carolina. But Georgia has something just as good to offer. I definitely want to look into it."

Georgia has 28 players committed for 2013, but the cornerback position has been a high priority. Langley's size and athleticism is what defensive coordinator Todd Grantham likes to see from his defensive backs, and it's clear they've made the 6'1", 190-pound Langley one of their top priorities heading into next season.
