Red and Black was Everywhere

If Tramel Terry wondered how much Georgia wanted him to be a part of their program, he wonders no more. He said UGA coach after UGA coach around Goose Creek on Wednesday.

Tramel Terry knew he had a visit set up with Georgia head coach Mark Richt Wednesday and he thought John Lilly, his recruiting coach would be there, but he did not expect to see three other Bulldog coaches.

"I had no clue that Georgia was sending five different coaches to see me," Terry told Scout with a laugh.

It started early on Wednesday morning and it did not finish until just before 10pm that night.

"Mike Bobo was the first coach to get here and he came early in the morning. Then Coach [Bryan] McClendon came through next.

"After that, Coach Richt got here around 2pm and he stayed for a long time. Coach Lilly and Coach [Tony] Ball were next and they did not leave until around 10pm.

"I just did not expect UGA to send all these different coaches. I did not know how much UGA really wanted me at times and I felt I was just thinking about that stuff too much, but I know they want me, and it feels good."

The top prospect in South Carolina could no be any happier with his final decision to be a Bulldog.

"It was tough, but I feel great about choosing Georgia. I know that is where I want to be and where I am supposed to be."

Terry's family feels the same way.

"We really enjoyed everything about the visit with all the coaches. We just enjoyed each others company.

"My grandparents were talking about where they first met, we had a great dinner together, and everyone loved the Georgia coaches," said the 5-foot-11, 195 pound athlete out of Goose Creek.

Terry will have a busy Friday.

He will have a signing party for his family since he is an early graduate, then he will head to Myrtle Beach to receive the Mr. Football Award for the state of South Carolina.

On Sunday, he heads to Spartanburg, S.C. for the Shrine Bowl.

He will play in the Under Armour All-America game on January 4, then move to UGA the following week.
