Woestmann's not waiting long

Some nice offers are in and Kyle Woestmann does not plan to wait long before making his decision. Georgia recently offered and they joined schools like Clemson, Georgia Tech, and Vanderbilt for the versatile lineman. Get the latest on when he could make his decision and who is leading now here.

"Georgia is my most recent offer and before that it was Clemson," said Kyle Woestmann. "I am expecting some other schools to offer me too."

He was a little surprised by the offer from the Tigers, but not so much by the Bulldogs.

"I was not expecting the Clemson offer when it came, so I was really caught off guard by that one. I knew Georgia was interested because they came to our practice one time to watch and then they came back again the next week. I had good days each time they were there and they offered me the day after their second visit."

Those two schools join Duke, Georgia Tech, Maryland, South Carolina, and Vanderbilt on Woestmann's offer list.

The 6-foot-4, 260 pound two way starter for the Walton Raiders is being recruited as both an offensive and defensive linemen by different programs, but the schools on top of his list now all like him as a DL.

One school in the SEC really stands out to Woestmann at this time.

"Vanderbilt is still on top for me," he said. "Right below them would be Georgia, Clemson, and South Carolina. I have only visited Vanderbilt and Georgia so far."

So why are the Commodores on top?

"When I go up to Vanderbilt, I just feel great. I really like the academic side of things there and they have the type of student-athletes there that I could really fit in well with. Nashville is a great town too and I think Vanderbilt has one of the top coaching staffs in the country."

"I really think I could shine at Vanderbilt and get a great education as well. I know I would be happy there and I always leave with that feeling when I visit. Vanderbilt is definitely a place I could be happy at."

He did not totally rule out the schools that have recently offered just yet though.

"Georgia and Clemson definitely still have a shot. Georgia has a lot of great things to offer and it is an in-state school. I have not been to Clemson yet, but I really like Coach Steele a lot. I am still really looking at both of those schools, but they are definitely behind Vanderbilt. I am just not sure yet if either one of them could be as good of a fit for me as Vanderbilt."

If the Tigers, Bulldogs, or anyone else wants to close to gap on Vandy's lead, then they better do it in a hurry because Woestmann does not plan to wait long before committing to one school.

"I will be making my decision soon," he said. "I will be committing sometime in the next few weeks. I may take another visit or something, but I am going to sit at home and really figure things out real soon."

"I am going to talk to my family, talk to my coaches, and talk to the people closest to me and then make my decision."
