Shaw Likes UGA's Family Environment

Georgia had one of the top juniors in their home state on campus Saturday and he loved the family environment. Find out more here.

"This visit was my second visit to Georgia and it was my first time there for a game, and I liked it," said Elisha Shaw. "I saw how the fans love the players there, how the coaches care about their players, and how the team is one. I really liked what I saw there."

Shaw liked the excitement of the game and he watched how the players played for four quarters in their 51-44 win over Tennessee, but there was one thing that stood out to him more than anything else.

"I just saw a team that stayed together and I really liked that. The players and coaches are joined together and they are like a real family at Georgia. I saw that before the game, during the game, and after the game. They are one unit."

One of Shaw's former teammates at Tucker High School is part of that Bulldog family. He has been telling Shaw how it is in Athens.

"Josh Dawson loves it at Georgia and he has been talking to me about what makes Georgia special. Josh told me Georgia is the place to be because it is one big family there, because of the chemistry between the players and the coaches, and because of how they do things.

"He is recruiting me to Georgia and that is cool. We are close, so I am listening to him."

The Dawgs have offered the 6-foot-5, 295 pound junior lineman who could play defensive tackle or offensive tackle on the next level.

Alabama and Florida State have also offered. All three have caught his attention.

"Alabama did have a slight lead, but all schools are really even now," he said. "It am looking at a lot of different schools really. I am just taking things pretty slow right now."

He plans to visit Florida this weekend for the LSU game. Shaw feels the Gators may offer during the visit.
