Carver football coach Dell McGee has said Georgia is no longer welcome at his school after the Bulldogs suddenly rescinded a scholarship offer to quarterback Devin Burns.
Burns went to Athens, Ga., on Saturday with his family, intending to meet with Georgia coach Mark Richt to announce his commitment to Georgia. Upon learning of Burns' plan, an unnamed Georgia assistant broke the news to Burns that his scholarship offer no longer stood, according to McGee.
Georgia knew Burns was visiting with the intent to commit before he arrived, McGee said, yet a communication breakdown allowed the rising senior and his family to travel to Athens before learning of the change.

"I say that to show them that the incident that occurred wasn't appreciated," McGee said. "The biggest thing is, the University of Georgia knew, they had knowledge of Devin and his parents coming there for the weekend. For them not to communicate that they had rescinded that offer before that was not very professional."
Carver defensive end Corey Crawford, also a senior, had planned to commit with Burns on Saturday, but changed his mind after the incident.
