UGA Commit: "I Know I'm a Dawg"

Chris Barnes, who has been committed to UGA for months, has decided to shut his recruiting down.

Barnes, a 3-star OL from Lee County, had an official visit to Florida set for January 30th on Tuesday, but after meeting with Kirby Smart and Kevin Sherrer Tuesday last night, that visit has been canceled.


Barnes said: "I can say I am all Dawg now.  After meeting with Kirby last night, he and my family had a great vibe. We had a great visit. I am not visiting anywhere else."


"After Kirby left last night, it hit me — I am going to be a Georgia Bulldog.  I was a little chubby kid with glasses that stuttered a lot, so for me, it is kind of surreal to know I am a Dawg."


New UGA OL coach Sam Pittman has talked to Barnes on the phone, and the two will have an in-home visit next Tuesday.
