Jeff George played quarterback in the NFL for a decade and a half. The former Illinois star was the No. 1 overall pick in the 1990 NFL Draft. He played for the Colts, Falcons, Vikings, Raiders, Redskins, Seahawks and Bears.

The Indiana native led the NFL in passing in 1997 and finished his career with more than 27,000 yards and 154 touchdowns.

Now, George is taking his son on recruiting visits.

Jayden George is a pro-style quarterback in the 2019 class. The 6-foot-3 quarterback isn't rated by any of the major recruiting services, but he's starting to receive interest from major programs.

The former NFL quarterback and his son went on a major recruiting visit this weekend.

The quarterback recruit visited Kirby Smart and Georgia football.

"Had an awesome visit at the University of Georgia this weekend!!! Thank you Coach Smart @KirbySmartUGA and Coach Coley @CoachColey for having me!" he tweeted.

Georgia is looking to add some depth into its quarterback room after losing five-star freshman Justin Fields to Ohio State.

The son of the NFL quarterback has also been linked to Georgia Tech, Michigan, Miami and Tennessee, among other programs.

Stay tuned.
