5-star OL enjoyed Athens

Laremy Tunsil has now visited Georgia twice in the past year and the first time he was impressed by the fans. This time, he was impressed by the coaches.

"The best part of the visit for me was being around the coaches," said Laremy Tunsil. "I got to hang around Coach [Will] Friend and he is that country boy like me, so I like that. I like how he coaches the offensive line. Coach [John] Lilly and Coach [Mike] Bobo are cool to talk to and I was around them some too.

"I also spent some time with Coach [Mark] Richt and he is a great guy. We had a great talk, he told me how I could help the program, and how he could make a man out of me."

Relationships is key to Tunsil's decision in the end.

"I want to be around good people, people I know, and people I can trust. I know this about Georgia coaches, they care about their players. I like that and I enjoyed being around the coaches."

The five-star offensive tackle out of Lake City (Fla.) Columbia did not visit UGA alone. He accompanied by a couple of coaches, a teammate, and his mother. The mother was scoping out things from Thursday-Saturday.

"Georgia is really a nice place," Laremy's mother, Desiree told Scout. "We saw a lot, we got treated well, and the visit to Georgia was nice. I saw a lot."

Like her son, the mother was impressed by the coaches.

"There are good people at Georgia and that is good," she said. "Laremy liked them and I did too."

The Dawgs had the no. four prospect in America on their campus for 36 hours and the continue to fight for the top uncommitted prospect on Scout.

Many other schools are still right there with Georgia right now including Alabama, Florida, Florida State, and LSU. It will be a long battle for all the schools.

"I am not doing anything until Signing Day," Tunsil said. "I still plan to wait until the end to make my decision. I take my time and pick the school that is best for me."

Tunsil is expected to visit Florida Sunday.
