Vasser Talks About His Decision

Navarro DE Quincy Vasser (6-4, 260) made a commitment Georgia on Thursday. caught up with him recently to discuss his decision and he filled us in on why he chose to be a Dawg, how committed he is and which schools have already told him they are going to ramp up their recruitment of him...

"I committed to Georgia (yesterday)," Vasser told "I committed there because I know a couple of guys there, John Atkins and Leonard Floyd, and I really thought it would be great playing with them.

"Georgia also has a really good program and I liked the staff and how they do things there."

As far as other offers, the only other school to make an offer to Vasser at this point is Maryland, but one perennial top-five team has told him they are very interested and will be coming to see him soon.

"Alabama said they liked me a lot and they were coming out to see me this next month," Vasser noted. "My coaches also said a bunch of other schools should be by to see me this spring and hopefully more offers will come in from them too."

With his decision coming so early in the recruiting process, is there any need for Dawg fans to worry?

"I'd say (my commitment) is at 80% right now," Vasser said. "I like the program and the coaches a lot and a couple of my friends are there too, but obviously there's still a long way to go, so I'll listen to what other schools have to say and then sorta just see where things end up."

Vasser enjoyed a solid prep career in New York before heading to Hargrave Military Academy in the fall of 2012. After spending a semester there, he decided to make his way to Navarro where he could continue to work on his academics and get ready to play at the next level.

"I was an All-State Tight End in high school and UConn and Rutgers were both recruiting me, but I wasn't able to get my grades good enough to get qualified, so Rutgers told me about Hargrave and I headed there," Vasser recalled. "I went there for a quarter and they moved me to defensive end and I think it was a great change. I loved the move and am happy I stuck with it."

As a freshman at Navarro last year, Vasser played the weakside defensive end spot for the Bulldogs and finished with 26 tackles, 4.5 sacks, eight tackles-for-loss and a blocked a kick as well.

"I'm probably at my best stopping the run just because I'm really good at reading blocks and then I can hold up along the line," Vasser said. "I'm working a lot this offseason on how I use my hands and my flexibility in my hips too."

Vasser is on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2013 football season.
