Wide receiver surprised by UGA offer

Darion Anderson snagged his second SEC offer on Saturday

Darion Anderson got an unexpected proposition on Saturday.

The wide receiver was in Athens for Junior Day when Georgia extended him more than just its welcome.

Mark Richt offered me during the visit and it surprised me,” Anderson said.

The 6-foot-1 wideout from Houston County, Georgia appreciated the Georgia coaching staff, especially newly reassigned wide receivers coach Bryan MccClendon.

“Coach McClendon is a really cool guy,” Anderson said. “The coaches really stood out to me. They are great people.”

Though McClendon is farm from new to the recruiting game, the 2016 commits will be his first class of Georgia receivers —and Anderson now has the chance to be a part of that.

Though he wouldn’t be far from his hometown, Anderson noted the comfort he felt in Athens.

“They made it feel like home,” Anderson said.

With offers from Boston College, Georgia Southern and Kentucky already in his pocket, Anderson said that the Bulldogs quickly put themselves at the top of his list.

“Georgia is definitely up there now for me,” Anderson said.
