ATHENS - During the final weekend before the dead period on the recruiting calendar, Kirby Smart and the UGA football staff hosted some top prospects in Athens.

Two prospects in town from Alabama were Enterprise High School teammates Zion Grady and Eric Winters.

Grady, an elite pass-rusher and a former Alabama commitment, is ranked as the No. 39 overall prospect in the county and the No. 3 prospect in Alabama, Winters, a versatile defender at 6-foot-2 195-pounds, is ranked as the No. 111 overall prospect and the No. 9 prospect in Alabama.

Both caught up with Dawg Post to give an update on their latest visit to Athens.

According to FanDuel, the Kansas City Chiefs are 2.5-point underdogs against the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.


“My favorite part was just being able to continue building relationships there at Georgia”, Grady told Dawg Post. “I like the energy and expectation set by the entire program. Winning is a must.”

Grady made an incredible 108 tackles, 37 TFLs, 22 sacks, 27 QB hurries, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and three blocked kicks last season as a sophomore.


Winters, a guy who can make plays from a number of different positions, told Dawg Post that he’s spoke with several different Georgia coaches during his visit.

“I spent a lot of time with coach Smart, coach T-Rob, coach Dante (Williams) and coach Schumann”, Winters told Dawg Post. “The people at Georgia want to stay at Georgia. There’s great stability there. The way the Georgia staff connects with everybody is a great to see. What makes Georgia special to me is their ability to develop guys like me. The way they’ve been a top if not the top defense in the last five years has been impressive.

A do-it-all athlete who can make plays in all three phases of the game, Winters is a naturally gifted player who can run, catch, defend, tackle, and make plays on special teams. He played some quarterback, throwing for over 400 yards and three TDs, but he was best with the ball in his hands, rushing for just under 700 yards and 11 touchdowns last year.
