Fluker enjoys official visit

The Georgia Bulldogs hosted one of their top defensive commitments this weekend. Find out how visit went below.

Shaquille Fluker took his first official visit to the University of Georgia this weekend, the first and only official visit the three-star safety plans to take.

The East Mississippi Community College product committed to the Bulldogs last August, and despite garnering attention from schools like Texas and Nebraska, Fluker has not wavered.

Fluker arrived in Athens on Friday and left Sunday, spending time with players and coaches throughout his almost-48 hours in the Classic City.

"It was great," said Fluker. "I had a great time with the coaches, and we talked a lot."

Fluker was able to spend a little one-on-one time with Georgia head coach Mark Richt, and sophomore cornerback Sheldon Dawson was Fluker's host.

On Saturday, Fluker attended the Georgia-Mississippi State men's basketball game and toured the practice facility, as well as Sanford Stadium.

"It was great to see how the field looked and check out the facilities," said Fluker.

With the graduation of starting safeties Shawn Williams and Bacarri Rambo, there are positions up for grabs in the Georgia secondary in 2013, and coaches made that clear to Fluker during his visit.

"They said I have a good chance of starting," said Fluker, who confirmed he would be playing Williams' position of strong safety.

Fluker originally planned to enroll this month, but those plans changed. Instead, the 6-foot-1, 205-pound hard-hitter is set to enroll in May.
