At Home Feeling

Raekwon McMillan if from the state of Georgia, he has gotten to know the Bulldog staff well, and he feels right at home when in Athens.

"I had a nice time up there today," Raekwon McMillan told Fox Sports Next Saturday night. "The game was great... It is what SEC football is all about. Both teams played hard, it came down to the end, and Georgia won."

McMillan enjoyed the excitement inside the Sanford Stadium, but he was not just a fan in the stands on Saturday.

"I was concentrating on the coaches and how they coached, how they reacted to their players, and things like that most of the time. I also watched the attitude of the defense, how the linebackers played, and just how it would be if I was out there part of the team. I really liked what I saw."

The 6-foot-2, 230 pound junior linebacker out of Hinesville (Ga.) Liberty County also liked how he felt.

"I just feel at home when I am at Georgia," he said. "When I am in Athens, it is not like when I am somewhere out of state because I know people, I feel comfortable, and it just feels good to be there.

"I talked with a lot of the coaches, but mainly Coach [Mark] Richt and Coach [Kirk] Olivadotti. Both of those guys are great and we are building a very strong relationship. Those guys were not recruiting me, they were just getting to know me, and I like that. They care about me and my family."

And it appears McMillan cares about the Dawgs.

This soon-to-be highly rated 2014 linebacker on Fox Sports Next has a lot of interest in the instate program.

"Georgia is still up there for me and I think they always will be. It is them and Ohio State at the top of my list. Georgia is a great school and I really like the people there."

He plans to see the Dawgs again next week, but this time he will be in Columbia visiting South Carolina.
