4-star CB Feels Like A "Priority" For UGA

Kirby Smart and his staff went the JUCO route last year in the secondary, signing DJ Daniel, who played quite a bit for the Bulldogs throughout the 2019 season last year.

Could the Bulldogs add another JUCO cornerback in 2021?

Dawg Post thinks that could very likely happen.

2021 JUCO CB De’Jahn Warren has become a top Bulldog target this spring and he broke down his interest in Georgia with Dawg Post. 

“I have still been in contact with the UGA staff,” Warren said. “One thing that I do like about them is how active they are. They communicate with me a lot and they always check up on me. I do feel like a priority to them.”

The 6-foot-0 175-pound defensive back has never taken a visit to Georgia before, but after establishing a relationship with cornerbacks coach Charlton Warren, he has decided to schedule an official visit to Georgia on December 11th, just three days before he plans to make his commitment.

Warren said he plans to take his first visit to Georgia “during the season”. 

Having the last official visit is always ideal, but sources say the Bulldogs will have to hold off Penn State in the end in order to sign him.

The 4-star prospect and No.2 ranked JUCO prospect in the country will take his official visit to Penn State the weekend of September 26th. He also plans to take official visits to Oklahoma and Tennessee right before his UGA official visit.

So, what means the most to the highly-ranked cornerback?

“As of right now, what’s most important to me is the relationships that I build with coaches, because due to the pandemic, I’m unable to go see the school and the distance from home doesn’t matter," Warren told Dawg Post. “So, I’m mainly focused on getting to know my positional coaches until I’m able to get to the school. As far as playing time, I feel as if that’s going to come when I get to whatever school I choose because I’m a competitor and I know I have what it takes to earn a starting spot wherever I decide to go.”

The 2019 JUCO All-American doesn't lack confidence, and that’s exactly what you need to play in the secondary in the SEC.

Dawg Post feels the Bulldogs are sitting in a great spot with a few months to go, but it will all come down to the official visits in the end.
