"I had a good time up at Georgia," Lorenzo Carter told Scout. "The fans showed up, I got a chance to talk to some of the coaches, and I am interested in them."

Arkansas, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Miami, Penn State, Tennessee, Vanderbilt have offered the 6-foot-5, 225 pound junior rush end out of Norcross, Ga., but the Dawgs have not joined that group yet.

"Coach Richt told me that Georgia really liked me and we talked for a while about out families, their current recruiting class, and how I would fit in Athens, but no offer from them yet."

Scout projects Carter more as a stand up end that drops into coverage and can also rush the passer. Mark Richt views him in the same way.

"Georgia likes me as an outside linebacker in their defense. Coach Richt likes my athleticism and he thinks I can drop into coverage while still being able to be sent off the edge to get the quarterback too."

Although Carter has a list of impressive offers, the one from the Dawgs is still one he covets.

"An offer from UGA is one I am waiting on," Carter told Scout. "I am very interested in them. From the coaching staff to the fans, it is such a feeling of unity."
