Bowman gets a ride with Richt

Devin Bowman traveled to Athens on Saturday and he got some one on one time with Mark Richt on the way to Sanford Stadium. Bowman talks about that and more here.

"I rode over to the stadium with Mark Richt and that had to be the best part of the visit," said Devin Bowman. "I mean a lot of other parts of the visit was nice too, but that was the best. I got one on one time with Coach Richt and he talked to me about what it is like at Georgia, the academics, how life is there for the football players, and just how he would like to have me there with him. It was a cool little drive."

Bowman was offered by Georgia well over a month ago and this was his time to Georgia in almost two years.

The 6-foot, 175 pound athlete out of Rossville (GA) Ridgeland really enjoyed his time at UGA.

"The atmosphere was great and I just love the support the fans give the players there. It was only a spring game, but the fans were into the game, they were making some noise, and I really liked it."

"It was me, my girlfriend, and my uncle that went and we had a lot of fun. I liked it over at Georgia a lot, a whole lot really. I had a great time."

Georgia offered Bowman as a cornerback so during the game, he focused on that position. He could be used on both sides of the ball if he decides he wants to be a Dawg in the future, but his primary position would be corner.

"They have some pretty good defensive backs already, but I think I would fit right in with them, and be able to compete with them too," he said. "I think they played well today, I like how they are aggressive, and I think I could do pretty well there. Offense is what I am most comfortable with and know the most about, so I focused on defense today to see how they played and if I could learn anything."

Clemson, Georgia Tech, Illinois, Notre Dame and Oklahoma State have also offered Bowman and he is receiving a lot of interest from Alabama (where his brother Michael Bowman plays) and many others as well.

He entered the day with Georgia high on his list and he left with that same feeling.

"I still like Georgia a lot. I have the same type of interest that I had in them before. You can say I have high interest in Georgia and I just like it over there a lot."
