Chat Recap with Georgia Commitment.

Elite 11 QB, #8 in the country by TheInsiders.com, and Georgia Commitment <b>A.J. Bryant</b> joined the Dawgpost Chat for a 30 minute Q&A with the members of the Dawgpost. Here is a recap of yesterday's chat.

The format for the chat was as follows: A.J. Bryant was on the telephone with Southeastern Recruiting Analyst Scott Kennedy. Scott fielded questions from members of the Dawgpost in the chat room, and relayed them to A.J.. A.J. then answered, and Scott relayed the answers back to the members of the Dawgpost via the chat room. 

The following transcript is an edited version of the chat dialogue to appear in a much easier to read Q&A format.



Scott Kennedy: All right, let's get started
Scott Kennedy: I have AJ on the line, and he is open for your questions....

Uga4Life: question: did the staff tell you they would continue to recruit another QB and how do you feel about that?
A.J. Bryant: UGA4life - I think they told me, I don't really know, it doesn't matter though, there's going to be competition everywhere. Once we get in pads though it doesn't matter. I'm not ever giving up, and I'll keep battling to play.

irondawg34: Do you play with UGA on PS2 or xBox or do you like to play with other teams
