Blazevich happy to be a Dawg

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Six months ago, Jeb Blazevich committed to Georgia. Following a recent practice, the Charlotte Christian star spoke with FOX Sports Next.

Four-star tight end Jeb Blazevich committed to Georgia back in April and is excited about continuing his football career in Athens.

"It's definitely a great honor to have a chance to play at Georgia, but I have something to finish at Charlotte Christian first," said the 6-foot-4, 225-pound Blazevich.

Blazevich is entering the homestretch of his high school career.

"I'm definitely going miss playing in front of the fans here because it's been great," he said.

Blazevich said he knew Georgia was the right place for him.

"God was just calling me there," he said. "It was always the school to beat. I just love coach (Mark) Richt and (tight ends) coach (John) Lilly and what they stand for. And of course, how they use the tight end and the way they do business on the field."

The Charlotte Christian standout has not taken his official visit yet, but has an idea of when it will be.

"I haven't set it up yet," he said. "I'm thinking probably the Kentucky game (Nov. 23) because that will be after our season and it's the last home game."

With his recruitment out of the way, Blazevich is focused on the rest of his senior season.

"My hand is still a little light, so I need to get some more hardware," Blazevich said. "Our school has never won back-to-back state championships in any sport, so that's something we need to do.

"We just have to keep doing what we've been doing. We have to focus on us and give maximum effort every practice – every play. And we can't take anybody lightly."

Charlotte Christian is 8-0 and plays at Raleigh (N.C.) Ravenscroft on Friday at 7 p.m.
