UGA making move for UT commit?

It was April when Rocky Reid committed to Tennessee, but he did not have a Georgia offer at that time. The Dawgs offered recently, UGA got him on campus for the first time Saturday, and Reid was impressed...

Georgia is looking for a top high school running back in the 2015 class and Rocky Reid may be one of their top targets.

It has been seven months since Rocky Reid committed to Tennessee and he has been strong to the Vols, but when Georgia offered him a scholarship recently, it opened his eyes a little.

The 6-foot, 215 pound senior out of Concord, N.C. has been in contact with the Dawgs and he decided to give UGA a look Saturday.

Georgia put on a show for him routing Auburn 34-7.

"It was amazing," Reid said. "It was my first time there and I had an awesome time. It was a great first impression and they made me feel wanted."

Nothing has changed in his commitment status with the Vols, but Reid may now give UGA another shot with an official visit. It is something he is going to go home and talk with his family about.

The style UGA plays is something that appeals to Reid, a physical back who loves to run north-south. Auburn had not allowed a running back to rush for 100 yards all season, but Georgia not only had one, but it had two in Nick Chubb and Todd Gurley.

That stood out to Reid.

"I think I could definitely fit in pretty good [at Georgia]," said Reid. "They do a lot of different things to make plays."

UGA's coaches made sure Reid knew they liked his size and running style when they met with him before the game kicked off.
