Five-Star Talks Trip to Athens

Dre Kirkpatrick, Scout.com five-star cornerback from Gadsden (Ala.) City, continues to dominate with a monster game Friday night against Etowah. Kirkpatrick took an unofficial visit to Georgia Saturday to watch the showdown between the Tide and Bulldogs.




"I had a good game Friday night," said Dre Kirkpatrick. "I had three interceptions. I returned one of the picks back to the house for six. It was a good win for us. We play at Shades Valley (2-3) this week."

Kirkpatrick witnessed Alabama's victory in Athens with the final score of 41-30 after a Tide 31-0 halftime lead.

"I went over to the Georgia-Alabama game," he said. "I went over there as a recruit to the game. I saw where somebody [Georgia] needed to do some work. When the first half ended I was like 'whoa.' I wasn't expecting that one."

"I think Alabama came out and played really hard. They had a great game plan. It really paid off in the end for them."

"I talked to a couple of coaches including the head coach [Mark Richt]. They kept saying they don't think they can get me. I kept asking them why they were saying that. They wouldn't really even give it a shot. They just kept saying they couldn't get me, but then said I would be a big help to their secondary."

"I didn't talk to any of the Alabama coaches, but they kept waving to me when I was down there on the sidelines. I was trying to look away from them. It was funny. I didn't know what the Georgia coaches would think."

"The visit over to Georgia was probably my last trip over there."
