Alabama athlete gives Georgia visit a "10"

2017 athlete Malik Cunningham visited Georgia this weekend and came away impressed

Malik Cunningham is a three-star prospect who plays for Park Crossing in Montgomery, Alabama.  The 6-foot-1 183-pound athlete took a visit to Athens this weekend with his father and teammate Tank Jenkins, and liked what he saw.

"I would say my visit was a 10."  Cunningham said.  "My favorite part was talking to coach Chaney.  He's a real straight up guy to me.  He loves the young man I'm becoming just by meeting me for the first time."

Although Cunningham plays Quarterback for his high school team, his athletic ability might land him at another position in college.  Cunningham said that the coaches have not told him what position he will play just yet, only that they will call him later this week to talk about it.  The Bulldogs need to take two quarterbacks in this class, with one preferably being a dual-threat type, which Cunningham is. He has a chance to turn into a playmaking wide reciever or safety at the next level with his combination of size and athletic ability.

Cunningham also said that he was glad he was able to get to know the new coaching staff.

"I got to speak with the whole offensive staff, as well as defensive coordinator Mel Tucker and defensive assistant coach Glenn Schumann."  Cunningham said.  "Me and coach Schumann have been communicating for a while because he was recruiting in Montgomery for Signing Day.  Schumann is my guy."

Cunningham also admitted that the Georgia campus was "amazing", and that he plans to take another visit to Georgia next month.  Keep a close eye on his recruitment the next couple of months.
