Southerland has an SEC offer
The Southerland already has one son playing major college football and they will soon have another. Brannan Southerland plays fullback at Georgia and Blake Southerland already has one SEC offer and many more programs are showing interest.
"I went to Vanderbilt for the Georgia game last year and Coach Bobby Johnson offered me up there," said Southerland.
"I was shocked by the offer. I thought I was just going up there for a visit, nothing big, and Coach Johnson pulled me aside and offered me, so I was shocked."
What does this junior from Norcross (Ga.) - Greater Atlanta Christian know about the Commadores?
"They are a strong academic strong, the coaches are real nice, and Nashville is a nice city. I did not see too much of it when I was there, but what I did I liked."

"I've gotten the most stuff from Georgia, Tennessee, N.C. State, and Ole Miss. Some other schools have sent me some stuff, but I have gotten the most from them."
