AHS senior lands 1st SEC offer

Published 12:00 am Friday, January 27, 2017

With national signing day less than a week away, Andalusia senior Allan George received his first offer to play SEC football when Vanderbilt University extended a scholarship to the first-team All-State corner.

Though George recently verbally committed to Richmond, the lock-down corner said that an offer from a school like Vanderbilt will lead him to open his choices back up.

“I’m truly thankful for the opportunity,” George said. “I’m going to be visiting Vanderbilt this weekend for an official visit.”

Despite only playing football for three years, George has been a quick leaner of the game, said Andalusia defensive back coach Brad Goldman.

“When he got here he had so much raw talent,” Goldman said. “He has the frame of an NFL corner, and he has really spent a lot of time improving his game. The kid is a film junkie. He watches about as much game film as I do, and he would always come up to me and point out things he noticed.”

The 6’2”, 185-pounder is well above the average size of college corners and slightly taller than the average NFL corner.

Add to that George’s nose for the football (7 interceptions his senior year, second in Class 4A), and it appears that he has all the measurable components that successful corners possess.

In two full seasons as a starting cornerback, George compiled 124 tackles and 10 interceptions.

George hasn’t announced any decision at the time, but said he was looking forward to his trip to Nashville this weekend.

The Vanderbilt offer is George’s 13th offer and his third FBS offer (Lousiana-Monroe and Navy).

George also said that Boise State, Wake Forest and West Virginia have also shown increased interest over the weeks leading to National signing day on Feb. 1.
