SEC offer coming for Atlanta WR?

By Dave Hooker

Rashad Canty is willing to wait. After a weekend visit, he deemed one SEC school worth of such.

The receiver from Riverdale High in Riverdale, Ga., is set to call Tennessee linebackers coach Tommy Thigpen this week. A scholarship offer could be in the works.

"He told me that they were very close to offering last time we spoke," the 6-foot-3, 201-pound prospect said.

Canty would certainly welcome the offer. He left Knoxville wowed by Tennessee during its junior day event on Saturday.

"I really liked the family atmosphere and the fact that they have a separate areas for families to sit during the games," Canty said.

Canty also likes the distance. The drive is less than three hours from his home to Knoxville.

"It's short, close to home, because I live in Atlanta," Canty said. "It's close to home, but far enough in case I need to get back."

Canty has also seen interest from North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.
