Seymour going strong at Hinds

Devondre Seymour inked with the Dawgs on signing day 2013, but had to go the Junior College route due to academics. He is still set on being a Bulldog, so when will he get to Athens? Find out here...

Devondre Seymour is playing right tackle at Hinds Community College in Mississippi and he is doing what he needs to get to the SEC.

He signed with Georgia in February, but he knew he had work to do to actually be a Bulldog.

"I am taking care of business out here," Seymour said. "I am taking four classes, I am getting my work done, and I am working to get to UGA."

Seymour said things are going well on and off the field and that he plans to be in Athens very early in 2015.

"I am on track to graduate here in December 2014, then move to Georgia that January. I have talked to the Georgia coaches about it, everything is in place for me, and I will get it all done. I am looking forward to being a Bulldog."

The Dawgs were always the first choice for the former star at Suwanee (Ga.) North Gwinnett and he is not looking at any other schools.

"I am all Georgia man," said Seymour. "Georgia was the first school to offer me, they were the school that showed the most love, and I will be a Bulldog.

"I love the atmosphere at Georgia, the coaches are great, and I stay in regular contact with them. We talk once a week and we have a strong relationship."

The 6-foot-6, 310 pound freshman has had a successful season in 2013, but 2014 will be a little different.

He doesn't expect to play football next fall.

"I think I have gotten better this year and adjusted to the speed of the game pretty well. I am starting at tackle now, but I will redshirt next season.

"The Georgia coaches want me to have three years of eligibility when I get to Athens, so I will just workout and take care of my academics next season.

"I will have a full three years to play at Georgia and in the SEC, so I am excited about that."

Seymour has not been to UGA this fall, but he will be home for the holidays, and there is a chance he makes it over to Athens during that time.
