"It's really the perfect place," Andy Dodd said. "The perfect football, perfect fans, perfect atmosphere and perfect place to play football."
The decision was not rushed for the Peach State prospect who had a number of impressive scholarship offers.
"I have known for a while," Dodd said. "I made my decision yesterday. I talked to coach Saban and coach Williams. They are very excited to have me."
Dodd knows his likely position once he arrives in Tuscaloosa and has the same relationship with the Tide's position coach as many other elite linemen share.
"I will most likely play guard," he said. "I don't care where I play. I will play wherever they need me. I love coach Stoutland. It's going to be fun playing under him."
The third member to join the class as an offensive lineman recognizes his strengths and an area to improve.
"My ability to run block is my strength," he said. "I need to work on my pass blocking."
Another pipeline in Georgia? The Tide signed a lineman from the same school in 2012.
"Dakota Ball and I are really close," Dodd said. "It's going to be a good experience playing together."
Ball also considered Georgia Tech [offer] and LSU [offer] before pulling the trigger. Other scholarship offers came from, Florida State, Mississippi State, Maryland, Miami and South Carolina.
Dodd is solid with his decision and does not plan to take any other visits.
