Fenteng "felt good" at Georgia

Georgia still does not have a full coaching staff in place, but that did not bother Shattle Fenteng over the weekend. The UGA commit had questions for UGA, but the Dawgs answered them all...

"It felt good to be at Georgia," said Shattle Fenteng. "I learned a lot during the visit and I got to see a lot too. I spent time with a lot of players, got to know the coaches, and all of the questions I had got answered. I felt good being there."

Fenteng is a 6-foot-2, 184 pound cornerback out of Hutchinson Community College in Kansas and he has the size coaches love in someone out on an island.

New defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt used to coach defensive backs at Alabama and he likes what he sees in Fenteng.

"I know Coach Pruitt really likes me a lot. He Likes my size, how I can play press coverage, and I think he thinks I will fit right in there.

"He wants to be an aggressive coach and he wants his defensive backs to press cover, so that is perfect for me. I am likely going to play boundary corner for him, but I can play either one.


"We watched film and my style is what he is looking for. I really liked what he had to say and he was a straight up coach. He does not sugarcoat anything and I like that. We went over a lot and I liked what he had to say."

Mark Richt was not so in-depth with the UGA commitment during his one-on-one session. It was a conversation that touched on a few different subjects.

"Coach Rich was great and we just talked about a lot of different things. We talked about me, we talked about Georgia, we talked about how he likes me as a player, we talked about the visit, and all kinds of stuff. He was cool to talk to and I had a good time."

Fenteng entered the visit a Georgia commitment and he left the same. He really liked being around the team.

"I got to hang out with Corey Moore, Shaun McGee (Host) Tramel Terry, Shaquille Wiggins, Toby Johnson, Tray Matthews, and a bunch of the guys," said Fenteng, "It was great. I really fit in well with the players and we all got along well.

"My commitment to Georgia is strong and I feel good about my commitment. I got the answers, I got along with everyone, and I really like the coaches."
