Want to attack every day with the latest Georgia football recruiting info? That’s what the Intel will bring at least five days a week. The play today is an update that centers on 4-star Alabama legacy Cortez Andrews, with a Florida vs. Georgia head-to-head comparison on the side and notes on 5-star RB Trey Sanders.
Cortez Andrews is trending on the 247Sports Crystal Ball feature to choose Alabama. That makes sense.

Andrews, known as Mack 10 to his friends, is an Alabama legacy. He’s blessed to have more football men in his life than any five recruits should know in any signing class.
His father Carlos Andrews played football at Alabama from 2001-04. His uncle Del Roberts played football at North Carolina. Dennis Andrews Sr., another uncle, played football at Florida State. Cousin Dennis Andrews Jr. played at Georgia Tech but later transferred to Middle Tennessee.
His high school coach Corey Fuller played 10 seasons in the NFL. He starred at Florida State and was a second-round draft pick in 1995.
Cortez Andrews told DawgNation all about his recent G-Day visit, explaining why the Bulldogs will now “definitely” get an official visit and comparing his Florida and Georgia spring game visits.
The guy sounds destined to have his own radio show.
But this was his first game day in Clarke County.
“I went to Florida to their spring game like three weeks ago,” Andrews said. “For their spring game. Ole Miss will probably be another trip soon.”
He was asked to compare the atmosphere of the Florida and Georgia spring games.
“That’s easy,” Andrews said. “Florida’s spring game was nothing like Georgia’s spring game. Nothing at all. Not even close.”
Andrews took in all of those 83,000 in the stands. That was one separator. But he also saw more on the field.

“Just to see the way those guys at Georgia competing in that spring game,” Andrews said. “It was definitely something I really enjoyed. I don’t mind saying that the Florida game was nothing close to the Georgia spring game at all.”
Andrews also described the main reasons why he’s considering the Bulldogs. His decision will not be made based off of atmosphere and fans.
He brought up how Kirby Smart always asks him about his family. Then he noted the way Mel Tucker gets his guys better.
His view on the way UGA prepares its players to be men and for a life after football also came to mind.
He measured in at a little over the 6-foot-1 mark and weighed 206 pounds. The staff likes his versatility to fly in and play the run from the safety position.
Extremely grateful for his opportunities
Andrews plans to cut down to a top 5 sometime in the next two months. Where is he at right now?
