2018 Georgia linebacker commit Donovan Georges isn’t shy about his love for the Bulldogs. The 6-foot-2 225-pound inside linebacker visited Georgia this past weekend, and loved everything about his future home.
“My favorite part of the visit was when we got to put on the Georgia uniform and take pictures. It really put everything into reality for me and I really visualized myself wearing that uniform for 4 years.”
Coach Smart and his defensive philosophy went a long way in Georges deciding on Georgia. The three-star linebacker got to sit and meet with the head man while on his visit.
“I also got to speak to head coach Kirby Smart in private for a good time and we really connected some more and he told me how he visualized me in the defense in the future and what I could really bring to this program and to hear the things that he had to say about me coming from him was a great feeling. I obviously spent a lot of time with coach Coley because that is who recruits my area. I had a lot of chances to catch up with Coach Schumann and talk football, technique, and what he would expect out of me. Offensive coordinator Jim Chaney is probably the funniest coach on staff always cracking jokes and his personality is something that I was really attracted to because I like to laugh a lot. Coach Tucker and I spent time as well throughout the day.”
The new indoor facility was a big hit with every recruit that visited the past weekend and Georges was not an exception.
“Seeing the new facility was new for me because I haven’t been to Georgia since my freshman year for camp, and I was really impressed.” Georges said. “The field was beautiful, the lights were flashing, and the loud music was awesome. I can’t remember exactly what songs were playing but it was basically hip hop. When they showed us the weight room there was also really loud hip-hop music that really had everyone in there really intense. I also got to go to the basketball game and that was really intense and a very exciting atmosphere. I can only imagine what a football game at Georgia would look like.”
Georges spent some time with other recruits as well, and admitted that there’s one recruit in particular that he will be recruiting to Georgia.
“I spent a lot of time with Mikel Jones since we know each other and have played together for 2 years. He will be someone that I will be recruiting to Georgia to be part of their 2019 class.”
It’s clear Georges is excited to be a Bulldog, and will bring that Florida swagger to Athens in 2018.
