Langley closes in on decision

Recruiting hasn’t slowed down for Brendan Langley, but the ESPN 150 defensive back has been trying to lay low and take it easy in recent weeks.

The Marietta, Ga., Kell High School prospect has put the recruiting process aside as he finished up the track season and started in with the football team for spring practice. Although he only worked out on the gridiron for a week, Langley believes he still got something out of it.

“I was only there for the second week, so it was pretty short, but it was fun,” he said. “I learned a lot. That’s always my goal going into things is to learn something, take something out of it, and I believe I did. In my opinion, it was productive. It was fun, and I’m just ready to get to the summer, get to these 7-on-7s, a couple camps and make my decision.”

During the week Langley was out on the football field, University of Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart stopped by to see him. He also received visits from Auburn, Georgia and Tennessee. On Sunday, Langley talked with Smart, his main recruiter for the Crimson Tide.

“He was saying the same old stuff,” Langley said. “We just talked about how much he and the rest of the staff would like me to be down there. He asked me about school and things like that.”

As of Tuesday, Langley still had Georgia on top, but Alabama has closed the gap in the last month, and Tennessee has moved up into his top three

“Georgia is still on top with Alabama a close second and Tennessee a close third,” he said.

The 6-foot-1, 181-pound defensive back plans to visit all three schools before making a decision. At this point, he’s scheduled to visit Tuscaloosa the first week of June for the Tide’s opening summer camp.

“I’m still going to take in some key factors, but for the most part, that will probably be it, and I’ll end up making my decision later in the summer after I’ve taken all of my visits and done all that."
