Scout 100 DB Wanted in Athens

Georgia has been recruiting Rashad Roundtree hard for months and it had the Scout 100 safety on campus Saturday. Roundtree left knowing he is wanted in Athens...

It was not known until just a couple of days ago if Rashad Roundtree would make it to Athens this weekend.

Georgia sure wanted him there and it got him there.

The Dawgs made sure he knows he is wanted.

"The best part of the visit was getting the one-on-one time with the coaches and meeting them," said Roundtree. "I spent the most time with Coach [Mark] Richt and he told me how they need me and my leadership qualities.

"Coach Richt told me I am their No. 1 safety they want. That felt great, but I know I still have a lot of work to do."

Some prospect would believe that and some may think Richt is just telling them what they want to hear.

Roundtree is a believer.

"I trust Coach Richt and I believe what he said to me. He told me that I go beyond a good player, that I am a good person. I believe what he told me."

The four-star safety saw practice, checked out some of the UGA facilities, and spent time with some other recruits in Athens Saturday.

The visit was a good one and the Dawgs are in this race.

"Georgia will always be in my top half of schools," Roundtree said. "It was a great visit and I loved it."

The Evans (Ga.) Lakeside All-American plans to narrow his list down at the end of the summer.

Roundtree is the No. 5 safety and the No. 84 overall prospect in the country.
