Bellamy is Blazing

Davin Bellamy has been picking up offers on a consistent basis for a month now and he picked up number 21 on Saturday. Get the latest here.

"My coach called me this morning to tell me that Coach [Rodney] Garner called him about offering me. I then called Coach Garner Saturday night and he told me about the offer himself. He told me that Georgia had been evaluating me, that they liked me, and that I now have an offer from them," Davin Bellamy said Saturday evening.

The Georgia offer is offer 21 for the 6-foot-4, 225 pound athlete out of Atlanta (Ga.) Chamblee. UGA was the first school to recruit Bellamy, so this is an offer he has been expecting.

"Georgia was the very first school I heard from. They were the first school I visited and I thought they would be one of the first schools to offer me.

"They had to evaluate me, make sure I was right for them, and they did that, so it is nice to have the offer now."

When Bellamy visited Athens, the tradition there stood out to him, but one thing more than anything else really caught his attention.

"When I walked in at UGA, I saw all the way down their hall names of guys that went there that played in the NFL. My dream is to play in the NFL, so that is something I really remember well from my visit to UGA."

His visit went well, but no visit went as well as Bellamy's visit to Vanderbilt. The Commodores have put themselves in good position for this three-star defensive end.

"Vanderbilt had everything perfectly planned for me when I went there," Bellamy said. "They had my entire schedule on the wall where everyone knew I was there and what I was doing.

"They have kept on recruiting me very hard and I talk to Coach [James] Franklin about two times a week now. I have a great relationship with the coaches there and they will definitely be getting an official visit from me."

The other four official visits are still up for grabs. This summer could help Bellamy decide on those.

"I have given up AAU basketball to focus on football, so I will be taking a lot of visits, hitting some camps, and really see what is out there for me.

"Schools within about five hours are the main ones I will be visiting this summer. Florida State is one for sure, Virginia should be one, and some others. I know I will be busy."

Bellamy is now up to 21 scholarship offers and he is just taking things day by day. He plans to take at least some of his official visits before making his decision.

Schools are recruiting him to play defensive end and outside linebacker depending on their scheme.
