Dawgs still lead for Griffin

One of UGA's top remaining targets spent six hours in Athens Friday and UGA entered his leader and they remain his leader. Is he close to committing? Get the latest here.

"The visit to Georgia was great," Kelsey Griffin told Scout after he returned home. "I have been there so many times there that nothing really was new to me, but I just enjoyed being there again.

"I thought the camp was even better than it was last year, I got to talk to some of the coaches, I met with the strength and conditioning coach, and I talked to some of the players. I had a good time over there."

Georgia has been Griffin's leader now for about a month or so and they are still the school others are chasing right now.

"Georgia is still on top and they are my number one school still. They is nothing in particular about them that makes me put them there, it is just how comfortable I am there and how I enjoy being there. Being comfortable somewhere is very important to me and I feel great at Georgia."

One of the coaches Griffin had his eye on at Dawg Night was Rodney Garner. UGA's defensive line coach has impressed the 6-foot-2, 295 pound defensive tackle out of Hoschton (Ga.) Mill Creek.

"He knows the game and he knows how to coach defensive linemen, so I watched him closely at Dawg Night to see what drills he put his guys through. I want to learn from him, so I really watched what he was doing so I could try to get better.

"I like Coach Garner a lot and I like how he coaches. My dad talked to him too at Dawg Night and he likes him a lot also."

Mark Richt did not get a lot of time with Griffin, but the two plan to meet again soon.

"At the end of Dawg Night, Coach Richt talked to me and just told me that he was happy to see me," Griffin said. "We talked about getting together soon and talking about some more stuff. We did not set a date, but it will probably happen sooner than later."

Griffin has mentioned the possibility of committing this summer and that is still something that could happen. He is not going to rush into his decision, but it looks like there is a good chance he could commit to someone before the end of August.

He plans to visit South Carolina soon, possibly Monday. Them, along with Auburn, Florida, and Florida State are still in the mix with Georgia.
