The Scout 300 wide receiver out of Station Camp (Tenn.) saw a lot of things he liked in Athens.
"I really got to see about everything there. I hung out with the coaches, I spent time with players, I met some professors, and I got a feel for the environment.
"The academics there really impressed me, Georgia is excellent in that area. I also liked the family vibe there. The coaches were great with me and my parents, hanging out with Chris Conley was great, and I liked my time a lot."
Athens is now a place Malone could see himself living after he finishes high school.
"My interest in Georgia is very high now. I just had a great visit there. Coach [Tony] Ball showed me how I could fit in as a wide receiver, how I would be moved around and learn the entire playbook, and he and Coach [Mark] Richt talked about making their players into men - I liked that a lot. Georgia is a great school, me and my parents like it a lot, and they impressed me a lot."
Ball and Malone have connected well and Richt is the kind of head coach he'd like to play for.
UGA made a strong impression and they will be under strong consideration as he makes his cut in the coming months.
"I just like the environment there. It is easy for me to fit in there with the players and the coaches, so it is a place I could really see myself in a few years," said the talented wideout.
Malone is the No. 20 receiver in the country on Scout.
