Bridges and Roads to Athens

ATHENS – The addition of an engineering program at Georgia has caught the attention of at least one prospect.

"I want to build bridges and design roads," said 2014 wide receiver Krenwick Height.

Mark Richt wants to build champions – so he offered the Wayne County prospect a scholarship over the weekend, which was big news.

"The offer from Georgia is my first offer," he said.

It will almost certainly not be the last. Height traveled up from South Georgia for the event over the weekend – taking in what the Bulldogs were offering.

"Coach Richt offered me, and then he started talking to talk to me about what I wanted to do for a living – civil engineering. The next time I go up I am going to meet with the folks in that department," Height said.

"He asked me what my family would think of going to Georgia," Height added. "My mom wants me to go to Georgia Tech because of the engineering. The only reason I was looking at Tech was because of the engineering."

But the Bulldogs now have an engineering program for Height and others to enroll in, which made an impact on the rising junior.

"I told my coach that I do want to go back. I told to them that I do want to visit again," he said.

Height said that he is getting a lot of correspondence from South Florida, and the he will "check them out soon. He added that he will likely also like to hear from Florida, Alabama and another engineering school… Clemson.
