Vasser Rejoins Friends

College recruiting involves more than just coaches.

Georgia picked up another 2015 commitment on Thursday night - this time from Navarro defensive end Quincy Vasser. Vasser played prep school football at Hargrave Military Academy with current Georgia defenders Leonard Floyd and John Atkins, and he must have found them to be suitable teammates - suitable enough to suit up with them again in the near future.

"That was a big factor," Vasser said. "Basically, John was like 'I (Vasser) should come down there. I like it and it'll be fun,' so why not get another opportunity to play with them?"

Floyd, a four-star prospect out of Hargrave Military Academy, appeared in 13 games for the Dawgs in 2013 and made eight starts. He also logged 55 tackles and a team-high 6.5 sacks in his freshman season. Vasser wouldn't shy away from that type of production in his first year, given the chance. He plans to enroll at Georgia in January following his graduation in December.

"I'm going to come in there and work hard, get on the field and help them win games," Vasser said.

Vasser has primarily spoken to Georgia's Kevin Sherrer and Tracy Rocker. He plans to meet with Mark Richt on Monday when he visits Athens for the first time.

"He (Sherrer) really seems like a good guy," Vasser said. "Basically he wants me to get out there and work and get on the field as soon as possible."

Georgia's Floyd and Atkins have taken kindly to first-year defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt's style of coaching, and Vasser wants to see it, too.

"They like the scheme the coordinator has (and) I like it," Vasser said.
