Georgia WR Back from Tuscaloosa

Devonta Bolton, from Norcross, (Ga.), is a huge receiver prospect who attended the Alabama spring practice Saturday afternoon. Bolton's teammate, Brice Butler, has received the most recruiting attention thus far. Bolton is picking up a lot of steam as the spring progresses.

"It was a fun visit," said Devonta Bolton. "Alabama was packed out. The atmosphere was perfect. I really enjoyed it."

"Their game was nice. I liked their explosive offense. I thought it was a real good game. It was a close game, and a good game."

The 6-4, 210-pound receiver spent time with Alabama head coach Nick Saban during the visit.

"I went over to Alabama with my parents. I talked to all the coaches. My parents and I were able to spend one-on-one time with coach Saban. He was telling me what position they were recruiting me for and stressed academics," Bolton said.

"If I did decide to commit the top two things I am looking for are academics and a strong family atmosphere. It really felt like a family over there."

"They are recruiting me as a receiver. They offered me a scholarship yesterday. I felt pretty good about the offer."

"The coaching staff is really trying to sell the school. They have a nice family vibe over there. The players are really nice. Coach Saban is trying to win a championship there, and I believe he has the ability to do that."

"I don't have any overall favorites, but Alabama is one of my top schools right now."

When asked a time-frame for a decision Bolton replied, "I hopefully will have my decision reached by mid-summer. If I don't make a commitment I hope I know where I want to go by then."

Bolton plans to attend the Scout.com All-American combine May 26 in Atlanta.
