Crowder Leaves Georgia Impressed

ATHENS - Georgia hosted a high profile offensive lineman prior to Dawg Night Friday.

With a big need to fill on the offensive line, Georgia hosted Tyrone Crowder, four-star recruit from Rockingham, N.C. At 6'3, 305 pounds Crowder is an explosive player known for his physical and tough style of play.

Crowder arrived on campus the evening before Dawg Night and started his visit in the morning with a walk around campus, highlighting his favorite aspects about Georgia.

"I got in at 9 p.m. last night then the visit started this morning," he said. "I took a tour and I got to see everything at Georgia. I saw the dorms, the campus, the academic buildings and the facilities. It was one of the best visits I have had."

Crowder has already been on campus at schools such as Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, and Florida. This being Crowder's first time visiting Georgia as a recruit, it was imperative that he felt a connection to the the campus.

"Georgia has a lot to like," he said. "It's hard to say just one thing that stood out to me the most. If i had to say one thing It would be the dorms. They were very nice and were bigger than i expected and i like the setup."

Crowder also noted that the ability to talk to Coach Richt both on and off the field was a big part in how he felt about his visit to Georgia.

"I had a long talk with coach Richt," Crowder said. "We talked about a lot of different things. He seemed like a great guy, he talked to me about him and his wife, and a lot of things that are not football related. I had a really good talk with him, and I got to know him really well. He and all of the offensive coaches made me feel welcome and told me that they want me at Georgia."

After his visit, Crowder said that Georgia is now one of his top schools. He heads to Auburn Saturday and believes that he will then begin to narrow his list of projected schools down, and ultimately come to a decision.

"I hope to commit soon, but I just don't want to be like these other recruits and commit then de-commit," he said.
