Bears being recruited include juniors Xzavier Dickson (DE), Corey Moore (S) and Ty Turner (TE). Dickson — an ESPN-U top-three selection nationally at defensive end in his class — has already fielded offers from Auburn, Florida State, Oklahoma State, Arkansas and Mississippi State as well as Georgia.
Turner (Wake Forest) as well as Moore (Georgia) and junior cornerback/receiver Chandler Worthy (Oklahoma State) have also already received Division I offers. Across town, Spalding High junior defensive tackle Chris Mayes (Georgia) also fits into that category.
Unfortunately, all of the players listed above are juniors and will thus be unable to sign National Letters of Intent next week.
