UGA-AU Recruiting Notebook: Part III

Georgia may have been on the outside looking in for 2013 phenom Robert Nkemdiche, but their persistence paid off. They got him in Athens Saturday.

Nkemdiche Visits Athens

It has been a while since Robert Nkemdiche had stepped foot in Athens, Ga. The Dawgs were the very first school to offer the 6-foot-4, 268 pound junior out of Loganville (GA) Grayson, but they have fallen behind some other schools.

Did the Dawgs make up any ground?

"I would put them at number six right now," Nkemdiche said.

That means no, UGA did not make up any ground. Alabama, Florida, LSU, Miami, and Oregon are still ahead of them.

The junior DL did like what he saw though.

"The atmosphere really stood out to me. It was loud and it was a great experience. I really loved the visit."

Alabama has been considered the favorite for some time, but the Dawgs are not giving up.

"The coaches came at him the same way they always do. They told me they want me, that they need me, and all that. It was the same way as always."

Dawgs First to Offer 2013 OL

UGA has not had much success at North Gwinnett yet. They went hard after Juwan James a couple of years ago and he went to Tennessee and they were first to offer C.J. Uzomah a year ago and he now plays at Auburn as a true freshman.

The Dawgs have ties here though.

"Richard Seymour is my dad," said Devondre Seymour. "He played at Georgia, so I know a good bit about Georgia. He has told me good things about them."

UGA offered Seymour before the Auburn game and it was surprising to the 6-foot-6, 305 pound junior.

"I did not think anyone was that interested in me yet. Nobody has been recruiting me that hard."

Seymour is excited about the offer and he enjoyed his visit to Athens. Alabama and Florida have been showing early interest in him as well.

Ramsey Reflects on Visit

"The atmosphere at the Auburn game was crazy. The way Georgia won did not surprise me because they have been playing good football lately. I do think that was the best showing on offense and defense all year though," said Brice Ramsey.

The Scout100 2013 quarterback has already committed to Georgia and his future position coach gave him a little piece of the game plan before the game.

"Coach [Mike] Bobo talked to me about what they were going to take advantage of and what they were not going to do on offense before the game."

Although the 6-foot-3, 203 pound signal caller out of Kingsland (GA) Camden County has taken a couple of visits to schools other than UGA this fall, his commitment appears to be very strong.

"I have been solid since day one. I gave them my word and I am standing by it."
