It all started after his freshman year. He got an offer that summer and he has added many big ones since. He is one of the top 2015 prospects in the country...

Hoganville, Ga. is not a big town. In fact, it is a small country town not too far from Alabama, but it has produced some elite prospects in recent years.

The best might be there right now.

His name is Terry Godwin.

He picked up an offer from Georgia in the summer of 2012 shortly after he completed his freshman year at Callaway. Since then, he has added scholarship offers from schools like Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Ole Miss, and Tennessee among others.

Godwin is a star in the making and he wants to use all of his talents on the next level.

"I really want to play both sides of the ball in college," Godwin told Scout. "I would like to play corner and wide receiver. Some schools have already told me that I could. I just think I can play both positions very well and I want the chance when I get to college."

This junior is good enough on both sides of the ball that he should be recruited as an athlete. He went to work this summer to improve his game at four camps and he likes each school.

"I went to Ole Miss, Alabama, Georgia, and Auburn for camps and all of them were great.

"It was my first time at Ole Miss and I didn't really know what to think about it at first, but when I left, I liked it. They really changed my mind about the school. I liked the coaches a lot and how they interacted with their players there.

Godwin can do it all.
"I have been to Georgia, Alabama, and Auburn before, so I already had connections there. At Alabama, I like how they are all about business. I have a great relationship with Kirby Smart and I like Coach [Nick] Saban a lot. I like the new staff at Auburn and how they are determined to get Auburn winning again. They want to make big changes and I think they will this year.

"Georgia is the school me and my family grew up following and I love how the coaches there treat me and my family. I have been up to UGA a few times now and I like how they do things."

The one school the future Scout 100 prospect visited that he did not compete at this summer was South Carolina.

He liked what he saw in Columbia.

"I went up to South Carolina last week for Black Magic and it was great. It was my first time there and I liked the coaches, how they ran the camp, and their combination of academics and athletics. It is a nice school."

Early on, Alabama, Auburn, and Georgia kind of jumped to the front of Godwin's list, but he has stepped back and he now has no leaders.

"There is nobody on top of my list," said the 6-foot, 162 pound athlete. "I want to get to some games this fall, check out the different atmospheres, and keep looking at the different schools. I am in no hurry right now."

Godwin would like to decide on his school right before his senior season as of right now.
