Scott Stricklin’s East Cobb ties were one of his many selling points when he took the Georgia baseball head coaching job back in June. His personnel moves are showing that he intends to turn one of Georgia’s most fertile recruiting areas into Bulldog territory.
Back in July, Stricklin named former Alabama standout Brandon May to a volunteer coaching position. May was a product of the East Cobb system and played high school ball at Lassiter.
Stricklin has gone back to the East Cobb well with his new Director of Operations. Jeff Guy comes from Marietta where he worked with East Cobb Baseball, a dominant youth program. Guy has also coached at Lassiter. Like Stricklin, Guy spent some time at Georgia Tech and helped to establish the pipelines that sent so much East Cobb talent to Atlanta.
