Justin Britt was a Camp Standout

<b>Justin Britt</b> came from Cullman, AL to camp with the Dawgs. Find out his thoughts on being in Athens, David Pollack, and the coaching staff.

Justin Britt's decision to sign with one of his favorite schools could be a difficult one. The Alabama native has all but narrowed his choices down to Alabama, Georgia, and LSU; although he says that other schools could still compete for him.

Britt's brothers Wesley and Taylor play for Alabama but he says that will not be the final factor in deciding which school that he plays for.

And while right now Britt's order of preference goes Alabama, Georgia, and then LSU, he is very high on both the Dawgs and Tigers.

"It would be tough to go out of state," Britt said. He said that many people that he does not even know pressure him to stay in state.

When asked about Georgia, Britt said that he had a great time at last weekend's camp. "I feel comfortable at Georgia," he said.

"Coach Jon Fabris and I get a lot great. He says that I am his kind of guy. Coach Brian VanGorder is a great guy. I talked with him for a little bit. I have known Coach Neil Callaway for a long time because he coached at some summer camps for my brothers. I feel real comfortable being around him," Britt said.

"Coach Callaway is not a salesman. He's real down to Earth. When he talks with you he's not pushy at all," said Britt.

Georgia recruiting coordinator Rodney Garner is recruiting Britt for Georgia. "I think that Coach Garner is an impressive person. He loves Georgia football. He does not want to be anywhere else. He said that when the last coaching staff left that he did not want to leave," Britt added.

This year in high school Britt will have to make a slight adjustment in his position. He said that he will play a little bit of linebacker, but for the most part he will slide down to defensive end. Why the position change?

"Most colleges are recruiting me as a defensive end. That and I have gained 50 pounds since I was a freshman in high school," he said.

While in Athens, Britt was introduced to the best defensive end in the Southeastern Conference, David Pollack. "I talked with him a lot. He has a lot of energy. He jumps around all of the time. You know that he was supposed to be a fullback. But he worked so hard in the summer that he learned everything about being a defensive end and the switch worked. He has so much heart," said Britt.

Georgia seemed to be on Britt's mind for sure after this weekend. He also visited Florida, but was not as high on the Gator camp because he did not mesh as much with their coaching staff.

Once again, in order, Britt likes Alabama, Georgia, and LSU. And while it appears that Georgia is doing very well in recruiting Britt, the Dawgs still have a long battle ahead of them.
