The Offer He Was Looking For

Coach Tony Ball called and offered Lee County wide receiver Sanford Seay Saturday.

Sanford Seay already held offers from Marshall, Lousiana Tech and South Alabama. But he had been holding out for an offer from the home state school for some time, he said.

"I was excited and happy," Seay said. "I was waiting for it to come. It came by surprise. Coach Ball gave me the phone call and told me. I was excited. I had been waiting for a period of time."

Seay, the 6-foot-4, 199-pound Leesburg product, did everything he could on the field this season to prove he deserved the offer from Georgia. He finished his senior season with 76 receptions, 1,180 yards receiving and 15 total touchdowns.

"I was patient," Seay said. "I wasn't in a big rush. Coach Ball said he was going to do everything he could and, I just had to stay patient."

Now that Seay holds the offer, he is close to committing to Georgia, he said.

"That's the school I want to go to," he said. "I just have a few questions I need to ask about the school and the football program and everything. Besides that I think I want to go ahead and commit to them. That's the school I want to go to."

Georgia currently has three commits at wide receiver—Chris Conley, Zach Witchett, Justin Scott-Wesley.

Current Georgia junior A.J. Green will soon make a decision to remain in school or to enter the NFL draft, creating a potential opening at the position.
