Dawgs Take Lead

Georgia had an in-state target on their campus Tuesday and after feeling the love in Athens, he left naming the Dawgs his leader...

Not too long ago Georgia offered Dee Jay Dallas a scholarship.

Dallas is a close to wrapping up his sophomore year at Glynn Academy in Brunswick, Ga. and he made the trip up to Athens, Ga. Tuesday to check out the Dawgs.

He enjoyed his time there.

"It was great at Georgia," Dallas said Tuesday night. "The coaches showed me a lot of love. They all were telling me I would be a good fit there, how they really want me, and how they want me to play for UGA.

"To hear that from coaches feels good. It is cool to know that they want me and that they care about me. It was great how all the coaches talked to me equally including Coach [Mark] Richt (Head coach)."

The four-star athlete on Scout was impressed by the "pace" and the "atmosphere" of the spring practice he watched.

He had his eye on the Dawgs getting after it on the field. Dallas couldn't really focus on one position because UGA has offered him as an athlete telling him he could play both sides of the ball if he becomes a Dawg.

After visiting UGA twice early in 2015, the Bulldogs have leaped to the top of his list.

"Georgia is on top now," said Dallas. "It is really because they treat me like I am family there."

Dallas measured in at 5-foot-11, 182 pounds, and was timed at 4.62 seconds in the 40 yard dash at the Valdosta MVP Camp last month. He was named Top Defensive Back at that event.
