Tadarian Moultry talks Georgia visit

Tadarian "TD" Moultry is one of the top linebackers in the south, and has seen his recruitment really pick up the past couple of months. The Alabama native took his first visit to Athens yesterday.

"The visit really well." Moultry said after his first trip to the Classic City.  The four-star linebacker from Birmingham (Jackson-Olin), Alabama is a top target for both Auburn and Alabama, but Moultry admitted that he has really wanted to take a visit to Georgia.

"I got to watch practice and I enjoyed it." Moultry said. "I liked watching the linebackers and how they use their hands."

The 6-foot-2 219-pound outside linebacker said he got to spend time with some of the coaches including head coach Kirby Smart, inside linebackers coach Glenn Schumann, and defensive backs coach Mel Tucker.

"They (coaches) told me they know it's hard to get an Alabama linebacker to go out of state."  Moultry said.  "They said they are going to recruit me hard and that they really want me.  I really liked the coaches there.  They are some good men."

Smart went hard after another highly recruited linebacker from Alabama last year in Lyndell (Mack) Wilson, and he is going to give it another shot in the 2017 class as well.  Some might think it's a long shot for the Bulldogs to sign him, but Moultry said he has always liked the Bulldogs.

"I could see myself playing at Georgia." Moultry said. "I've been loving them since I was small. They are up there with Alabama and Auburn. I'm hoping to make another visit in the future."  

On the field, Moultry is a guy who can really lay a hit on someone.  Physically he is all muscle, and caught everyone's eye real early during the Atlanta MVP camp.  He covers a ton of space, he has very good strength, and uses his hands well to shed off blocks. 

Moultry is the top-ranked outside linebacker prospect in Alabama, and ranked the sixth-best outside linebacker in the south.
