Georgia's not giving up

Georgia paid Jeoffrey Pagan a visit earlier this week, so will they now get a visit from him? UGA is not giving up on this elite defensive end.

Georgia's Rodney Garner and Todd Grantham traveled up to Asheville, N.C. earlier this week to check on Jeoffrey Pagan.

The four-star defensive end had this to say about his time with the two defensive coaches out of Athens:

"Things went well today It was nice to spend some time with Coach Grantham and Coach Garner," Pagan said. "We spoke alot about the defense that they run and how the feel I could fit into their system. I would play defensive end in their 3-4 system. They see me as someone that could move all over the front depending on the game situation and favorable match-ups."

Georgia offered Pagan early in the process and they are still under consideration by one of the top prospects in the state of North Carolina.

"UGA has been solid throughout the whole recruiting process. All indications point to them wanting me to be a Bulldog. I have some interest in Georgia; they have a good track record of sending defensive lineman to the NFL and they also have a rich football history."

He learned nothing new about the Dawgs during this visit, but he took mental notes as they met and that will play into who he decides to visit officially.

That list has not been decided on fully yet.

"There is a lot that goes into deciding which schools I will take my official visits too and at this time I am not ready to release any information about who I will visit. All I can say is Georgia will be one of the schools that I will choose from when it comes time to finalize my visit list."

Alabama, Clemson, Florida, LSU, North Carolina, North Carolina State, and Tennessee are the other schools that have been mentioned with Pagan concerning official visits recently. USC is another one, but he is looking at schools closer to home when it comes to signing a letter of intent.

Note: Since this interview was conducted, Pagan has decided to take an official visit to Georgia on the weekend of December 11. See story here.
