Georgia Commitment Talks Auburn Visit

Looking to possibly play wide receiver on the next level, speedy Georgia commitment Terry Godwin visited Auburn and talks about the Tigers.

Hogansville, Ga.--One of the top two-way players in the country for the 2015 recruiting class, Georgia commitment Terry Godwin has been a frequent visitor to Auburn dating back to last year. Very familiar with the Tigers and Coach Rodney Garner, he made a return trip to the Plains on Saturday and said it was good to see everything once again and get another feel for the coaches.

"It felt good," Godwin said. "It felt just like last time. They are a family just like Georgia. Everybody is a family there, everybody.

"On the way over I thought they were just going to all uptight about meeting me or forcing me to come," he added. "They were all relaxed, loose, and happy being the same people they were the first time."

That relaxed atmosphere is something that Godwin said he relishes about being in Auburn. Even though he's committed to a rival, the speedster said he never feels any kind of pressure from the Tigers.

"It's great," Godwin said. "Everywhere else I go I feel like I'm being pressured or forced to go there, but at Auburn they are being a family just like Georgia. Everybody is a family."

Being recruited as a cornerback by the Bulldogs, Godwin is a player that could play defense as well at Auburn, but they're also talking about him playing wide receiver. The promise of offense is something he said keeps him interested in the Tigers moving forward.

"It's very important to me," he said about playing offense. "But, I have narrowed it down that I might just want to play wide receiver but I'm not sure yet.

"From my point of view I have seen they have made different ways to get their wide receivers the ball," he added. "They let them make plays on their own to help the team win."

With that in mind said that Auburn continues to make a strong impression on him and despite his decision the Tigers remain firmly in contention for him.

"They are still at the top with Georgia and the rest of them," Godwin said. "I'm still open to everybody else too."

Something that could play into Auburn's favor moving forward is having two close friends currently playing for the Tigers. With former Callaway teammate Ricky Parks back on the team along with senior wide receiver Quan Bray, Godwin said it's great having people he trusts to tell him the ins and outs of the program.

"It's big to know he's back over at Auburn and helping himself out," Godwin said. "It's big on my part too. He can help me out on the inside. I have Quan Bray over too. It's just a good inside feedback.

"He (Parks) said the coaches are going to look out for you and they are going to help you first with your school work," he added. "Then they are going to make you better person after football. That's the most important thing."

Godwin said he plans to return to Georgia soon, but doesn't have any other visits set up. He said he plans to take things all the way until signing day before announcing a final decision.
