Georgia DL Will Visit FSU for the UVA Game
"Florida State is starting to show me some major interest," defensive tackle/end Mam Nyang said. "They tell me on the phone that they are very interested. They wanted me to come to the Clemson game but I didn't have an enough time to set up a ride. In two weeks I'll head down there when they play Virginia. Florida State was my favorite team growing up."
This upcoming weekend, Nyang will visit Georgia unofficially with his teammates when the Dawgs square off against SEC rival Tennessee.
"Georgia is right up there with Florida State," he said. "Both schools say I can play anywhere along the line I watched them both play last weekend. I want to play for a winning program."
Nyang, who started the season at defensive end but got moved to tackle, measures in at 6-foot-3 and 260 pounds with a 4.7 40-yard dash time. The move has pain dividends with an outstanding showing last Friday evening.
"I got a sack early in the game and then injured my shoulder," he said. "It was a little numb but I was allowed to go back out in the second half where I got around seven tackles and a tackle for a loss."
Marietta Wheeler is struggling in the record column with only one win. However, don't blame it on the defense.
"The offense is struggling a little bit," Nyang said. "The defense is playing pretty well. We're only allowing an average of 10 points a game."
Nyang has been described as a raw player with a ton of upside.
"I moved to the United States in the third grade from Gambia," he said. "I didn't play football until my 9th grade year."
