5 Star Receiver talks Georgia/Georgia Tech

<b>Calvin Johnson</b> may be the top target on both Georgia and Georgia Tech's board. He was in Atlanta last week for the game between the Bulldogs and Yellow Jackets. What did he think?

Calvin Johnson is one of the biggest targets in the Peach State for the class of 2004. He also just happens to be one of the biggest recruiting battles between the Dawgs and Jackets in recent memory. Last Saturday, he took a trip to Atlanta for another rendition of one of the best in-state rivalries in the country. What did he think?

"It was alright. I was surprised that the stadium was half and half (Half Georgia fans, Half Georgia Tech fans). Georgia just beat them pretty good," Calvin Johnson said.

How did he feel about each team's performance?

"Georgia Tech just had too many turnovers. Georgia really came out and took care of business."



Did the game go as he had expected?

"Not really. I expected Georgia Tech to put up more of a fight. That's about it."

What all did he do on his trip?

"I got there late, pretty much right before the game. I went on the field and watched warm ups. Then we watched the game. After it was over, I went in the locker room. Everyone was down because they just lost too their rival and all. That was basically it."

Calvin tripped to Athens for an unofficial visit earlier this year. How did his visit to the Flats, compare with his trip to Georgia?

"I got to Tech late so I didn't get to do as much as when I went to Georgia. At Georgia, I got to talk with an engineering professor, and learn about the school. We saw the facilities and all. The game day experience just has more excitement there than Georgia Tech from what I can tell last weekend."

Will this game have any bearing on his decision?

"No. It's not a factor in my decision. I'm looking at education, and waiting for my official visits."

Calvin has set his first visit to Georgia Tech on December 12th. This coming Friday, the Georgia coaches may make an in-home visit with him before their date in the SEC Championship. He plans to set an official date to Athens at that time.
