Catching up with Quincy Mauger

ATLANTA – The 2012 Corky Kell Classic kicked off at the Georgia Dome Saturday, featuring some of the top teams and talent in the state of Georgia.

That talent was on display early when University of Georgia commit Quincy Mauger's Kell Longhorns defeated the Chattahoochee Cougars 19-8 in The Opening game.

Kell's defense held Chattahoochee to just one touchdown, and Mauger lined up at wide receiver and safety, where Georgia is recruiting him to play at the next level. He secretly committed to Georgia head coach Mark Richt after receiving an offer at the Mark Richt Camp in July, but publically committed to Georgia at Dawg Night a week later.

"It felt good," Mauger said in regards to receiving the offer from Richt. "I loved it."

Since committing, Mauger has reached out to other members of the 2013 Georgia recruiting class.

"I actually met the recently committed Paris Bostick. I've met Tray Matthews. I've met some of the wide receivers," said the 6-foot, 200-pound Mauger. "It feels good to be a part of the Bulldog Nation and the 2013 recruiting class."

Mauger's teammate, Brendan Langley, caught two touchdown passes Saturday and is committed to South Carolina. Mauger said he still talks to Langley about playing together at UGA, and likewise Langley tries to get Mauger to Columbia.

"We are trying, but he and I just go back and forth," said Mauger.

Kell has a bye week next weekend, and Mauger said he plans to make a trip to the Classic City for the Bulldogs' season opener against Buffalo. The three-star safety said he still hears from schools like Florida and Central Florida, but Georgia fans shouldn't worry.

"It feels good to be a Bulldog," Mauger reiterated.
