Christian Conley - Profile

One of the top wide receivers in the state, Christian Conley visited Georgia for Junior Day last Saturday. Conley, who is being recruited by a multitude of schools, had a great time while in Athens.

"It was pretty good," he said. "I got there early and was able to take time to meet the coaches. It wasn't rushed or anything. I was really just able to sit down, see the facilities, the coaches, and what Georgia has to offer. So, it was a pretty good experience."

The junior plans on attending more Junior Days. He also will make some other visits.

"I will be going to Clemson. I will be down for a visit at Alabama. I have also scheduled a visit to go sit down with the coaches at Georgia Tech and watch a practice, and watch some film."

During his upcoming visit with the Yellow Jacket coaches, the coaches will look to convince him their offense will be worth playing in. Conley is keeping an open mind.

"Because it's so different, obviously you have to look at it differently than other schools. But I'm going in because they've always been trying to throw the ball some more. So I told them that'd I'd come in and see what they're working on and how they're going to install it and things like that. I told them that I'm going to be there, I'm going to check it out and see what their new looks are going to be with their receivers and what they're going to do with them."

Conley is currently holding offers from Georgia, Vanderbilt, Tennessee, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Stanford, and Wake Forest. A couple of these schools stand out to him right now, too.

"The schools that are standing out right now are Georgia and Clemson. I'm going to go and visit a couple more schools and then make an educated decision."

With plenty of schools to go and visit, Conley knows what he is looking for.

"I want to be around men of character, in terms of coaching staff. I want to see what programs they have at the school and the academic support. What do they have in place for the athletes to succeed? I want to see how they progress and develop their players. Those are the sort of things I'm looking for."

He doesn't have a timetable for a decision right now. Christian has more schools he needs to look at, so he says he will be patient, pray about it, and make the right decision.
