Coach expects DB Tavon Ross to stick with Missouri

Georgia has been making waves all over the Southeast with 11th-hour recruiting drama the past c0uple of days, but it appears the Bulldogs may fall short in their attempts to sway one prospect they were trying to get away from another SEC school.

Bleckley County coach Tracy White said in a text message to the AJC’s Michael Carvell he expects safety Tavon Ross to sign with Missouri on Wednesday. The 3-star recruit has been committed to the Tigers since last summer but visited the campus for the first time only two weeks ago and visited UGA this past weekend.

“He’s still committed to Mizzou,” White said. “Will not know know for sure until tomorrow, but I don’t think there will be any surprise signing tomorrow.”

Georgia’s recruitment of defensive backs has been very fluid the past week. On Monday the Bulldogs picked up a commitment from Shaquille Jones of Merritt Island, Fla. Tuesday they lost longtime commitment Kendall Gant, a 4-star safety from Lakeland, Fla., to Marshall due to academic shortcomings.
