The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that the Myrtle Beach
Sun News is reporting that
Clifton Geathers is saying he is close to
qualifying academically. Got that? It is par for the course in the ongoing saga
of Geathers who has been probably the most difficult prospect to chronicle in
recent times. If true, it is great news for the Bulldog team that is thin along
the offensive line.
While the Sun News does not offer their story on their website, the online
version of the AJC's story quotes Geathers' tutor Dr. Jean D'Arcy Maculaitis.
A four star prospect out of Carvers Bay, S.C., Geathers is the younger
brother of former Bulldog and current Cincinnati Bengal Robert Geathers
and nephew of All Pro Jumpy Geathers. His father also played in the
National Football League. The youngest Geathers committed to the Bulldogs after
signing day, but has yet to sign a National Letter of Intent. Getting news on
his progress has been very difficult.
Geathers was rated the No. 24 offensive line prospect in the nation by
Rivals.com and the No. 4 player in the State of South Carolina. He chose the
Bulldogs over scholarship offers from several other schools including Auburn,
Clemson, Florida, Tennessee, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, and Florida Sate.
