Coach McClendon was up in North Carolina last Friday to check out the top running back in America.
"I did not have a great game numbers (17/79) wise because their defensive line really played well, but I had a couple of touchdowns, and I ran hard," said Keith Marshall. "I called up Coach McClendon after the game and we talked for a while. He told he was proud of how I played, how I fought for all my yards, and what I did against eight and nine guys in the box. I have a great relationship with Coach McClendon and he is someone I like talking to because of the way I relate with him."
Shamire DeVine saw UGA standing on the sideline Friday night and he did not really pay them much attention, but he knew they were watching.
"I think I had a good game in front Georgia, but I just play my game no matter who is out there. I had some nice blocks, I know UGA likes me, and I like them too. I am hearing from them a lot," Devine said.
One of the top offensive targets for the Dawgs is Cordarrelle Patterson. The wide receiver out of Hutchinson Community College in Kansas plans to visit Athens in December. He saw Coach Ball at his game.
"I do not know what my stats were, but I think I played well. I know Coach Ball likes how I play, he tells me that, and I think I made some nice catches in front of him Saturday," said Patterson. "Georgia had A.J. Green, so they just had one of the best in the country there, so that is attractive to me. I know UGA will get the ball to their play-makers, so I like that too."
