"We got to talk a lot to the coaches," he added. He was one of 21 prep stars that visited Athens this weekend.
Southerland committed to the Bulldogs in November and said that he is glad that he made that decision.
He said about Georgia: "It was the place that every day after I committed I felt better about it. I feel even better about it now."
But Southerland did not participate in all of the recruiting events of the weekend; and he wasn't the only one.
"I didn't go to the basketball game. You know a lot of guys were tired. A lot of guys stayed out late with their hosts the night before," Southerland said.
Southerland's host for the weekend was Trey Chandler. Both grew up in Gwinnett County. "It was nice to meet him," said Southerland.
Mike Bobo, Georgia quarterbacks coach, has been responsible for reeling in many Gwinnett County products in the last few seasons. Southerland is just one more on that list.
"He's great and has always been straightforward," said the fullback/linebacker of Bobo.
I asked him if he had a feel about the uncommitted players that went to Athens this weekend. He said: "I really don't know. They get to see what its like at Georgia. All of the guys that I met were great. I am real excited about our class," he said.
"The coaches always want you to talk with some of the guys that are uncommitted. They want you to talk with them about why you picked Georgia," he added.
"I had a great time. I got to see Athens and see the new dorms," concluded Southerland.
Southerland will not visit any more schools. He is firmly committed to Georgia.
