UGA's not giving up

Alabama may be the school that has Dillon Lee on their commitment list, but Georgia doesn't care. The Dawgs are going as hard as they ever have for Dillon Lee.

"All of the other schools have kind of stopped recruiting me other than Georgia. The routine has been the same now for a while; I have been talking to them at least once a week and they are recruiting me hard," said Dillon Lee.

Lee's brother Dallas Lee was starting for the Dawgs at guard before going down with a broken leg against Florida late in October. He could be back for the bowl game, but that brotherly connection is something no other school can offer.

"I spend a lot of time around Dallas in Athens and I have gotten to know a lot of the Georgia players because of that. Me and Dallas are close, but he is not telling me I have to attend Georgia or anything. We have fun around each other and it would be cool to play with him again, but I have to make my own decision."

For now, the decision is made.

Alabama received a commitment from the four-star linebacker out of Buford, Ga. in the spring, but he has not totally ruled UGA out.

"I would say that Georgia is still a contender for me," he said. "I have been to over 20 games at Georgia, their defense looks really good, I like Coach [Kirk] Olivadotti, and my brother is there.

"I was surprised the way that Georgia beat Auburn last week, but Auburn is not the same team they were last year with Cameron Newton and Georgia is playing very well. The defense at Georgia is totally changed and they are playing very good right now.

"I am still thinking about things and talking with my parents about taking an official visit to Georgia. I have not decided on that yet, but Georgia is still really recruiting me."

Lee is scheduled to be an early graduate and he is currently going for his fourth straight state title at Buford.
