Georgia gets big news

One of the top offensive linemen in Georgia called Mike Bobo Monday and told him he wanted to be part of the Dream Team.

"I called Coach [Mike] Bobo and he asked me how my trip was to Mississippi State first before I could say anything. I told him that it was ok, but that I was ready to commit to Georgia," said Xzavier Ward.

"I want to be a part of the Dream Team that Georgia is putting together and I am excited about it. I know some of the players, I know they are having a big class, and I am part of it now."

He took a recent trip to Starkville and he had a good time there, but his heart is and has been in Athens.

"I really like it at Georgia. They are the home team, I like the coaches there, they offered me first, and I just feel it is the school for me. I really fit in there."

The 6-foot-6, 260 pound tackle out of Moultrie (GA) Colquitt County is not the only one excited in South Georgia. All of those around him like the decision he made as well.

"Oh yeah, my family is excited too and they are happy about me going to Georgia," he said. "It has been a great day and I am just going to work hard to get bigger and stronger for when I move to Georgia."

Ward is part of the Bulldog 2011 class and he plans to move to Athens in June of 2011.
