For Courtney Abbott, a huge offensive line prospect from Atlanta, the Georgia football camp was "wonderful".

"We pretty much got to show off. We were doing basic drills and stuff like that. There were kids from all over the country there," said Abbott of the camp.

But according to Abbott, he and a small group of highly touted prospects were given the star treatment by the Georgia coaching staff. Abbott said that he, Georgia commit Charles Johnson, his high school teammate Michael Brown, and powerful Eric McClendon had the chance to talk with Georgia Head Coach Mark Richt for much of the camp.

"We talked about the new dorms and how great that it would be for me to come to Georgia with Michael. He said that it would make the transition to college ball and life easier for both of us if we came up there together," Abbott said.

Abbott said that while he really enjoyed the Georgia camp, he is not ready to commit to any program right now. If fact he said that he will not commit until signing day. However, it is unclear if that is an accurate statement or if he just being bashful.

"I like Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Clemson, Virginia, Auburn, and Cincinnati," said Abbott.

Abbott said that he did have a chance to talk with Georgia Offensive Line Coach Neil Callaway at the camp and said that the coach had some praise and some suggestions for him.

"He told me that he loved my blocking, but that I needed to work on my experience," said Abbott.

Good thing for Abbott that he got the chance to gain a little bit of experience at the Georgia camp in the form of going one-on-one against Georgia commit Johnson.

"He's an All-American type player and I got the chance to go up against him the whole time. He is the best defensive end in the country," said. Abbott.

It is not clear if Georgia was using Johnson to woo Abbott and Brown to commit to Georgia, but something did go in Georgia's favor at the camp in regards to Abbott. He loved the camp.

"Being up there made me think about going up there for school," he said. According to Abbott we will have to wait until signing day to find out where he will end up. But other recruits that I have spoken with say that Abbott is not that far away from pulling the trigger with the Dawgs.
