Alford's waiting for the call

If Georgia calls with the news Mario Alford is looking for, he will end up in Athens.

"I have talked to Georgia a couple of times now and I am just waiting to hear back from them. Once they decide to offer me or not, they will let me know, and if they call with an offer, I will be committing on the spot," said Mario Alford.

"Since I was young I have been a Bulldog fan and I have been working hard to get to Athens. I know they are interested in me, so now, I am just waiting to see if they will offer me a scholarship."

If the Dawgs decide to pull the trigger, Alford said he will be in Athens this summer.

"I am ready to go academically. I just decided to come back to Georgia Military College for another year because I wanted to earn bigger offers. Georgia is the offer I want, so if they offer me, I will be out of GMC after this semester."

Alford could see himself playing both sides of the ball if UGA signs him.

"Coach [Bryan] McClendon has talked to me about possibly playing defensive back and wide receiver there," the 5-foot-10, 180 pound athlete stated. I played mostly slot receiver and running back last season at GMC, but I will play anywhere at Georgia."

He just wants his shot.

"I feel I can compete at Georgia and help them. I work very hard, I am very fast, and I will play anywhere they want me to.

"Right now, I think Georgia is just window shopping, once they decide on who they want, I am hoping to get that call."
