Harrow talks UGA offer

Quintavious Harrow has flown under the radar and once he received his passing test score, Georgia offered him. It was not a surprise to Harrow and he talks about that and more here.

"Georgia has been recruiting me for a while and they told me before that if I get my test score, then they would offer me. I got my test score and Coach [Bryan] McClendon called me and offered me over the phone. He told me and my whole family that I have a scholarship offer from Georgia," said Quintavious Harrow.

The news was like a dream come true for Harrow. He has always been a fan of the Dawgs.

"Georgia has always been my favorite school and I have been there numerous times. I grew up liking them, so when I got the offer, it was pretty exciting for me and my family. I like the program at Georgia, I love the coaches, the fans create a love atmosphere, and Georgia is just great all around. I cannot say a bad thing about them."

Harrow is coming off a surprise visit to Alabama this weekend and he is set to visit Georgia next weekend. He is not ruling out a decision while in Athens.

"I could commit if everything goes right when me and my family are over there," said the 5-foot-11, 190 pound athlete out of Columbus (GA) Carver that has been timed in the 40 yard dash at under 4.4 seconds. "Georgia is the top school for me. I liked it over at Alabama this weekend, they treated me good, and I really liked their weight room, but Georgia is my favorite."

One of his good friends already attends the University of Georgia in Jarvis Jones. Harrow has talked to Jones about UGA and he liked what he was told.

"Jarvis tells me that Georgia is very honest and that the coaches tell the truth. He told me that he loves it over there, that Georgia is the place to be, that the players and coaches are like a big family, and all that. I look forward to seeing that for myself next weekend."

Harrow will not be the only Carver athlete in Athens next weekend on an official visit. Five-star running back Isaiah Crowell will be there also. Those two are close and while Crowell is highly rated in prospect rankings, Harrow is fine with flying under the radar.

"Me and Isaiah are very close. We are family by marriage and we spend a lot of time together. He is a great player and ranked high, but I like being the opposite right now. A lot of guys like me fly under the radar and then make a lot of big plays in college. Some people feel like we can't do too much, but we can. I like to hit, I can run, and I think I am a good player."

He played linebacker and safety for Dell McGee at Carver and he was offered by Georgia more as an athlete.
