A New Georgia Commitment?

Lonnie Clemons has been a relative unknown to this point in the recruiting process. However, he took a big step toward putting his name on the map at the GA North/South All Star game, and at least one big time school has taken notice.

"A couple of schools been talking to me. Georgia came by my school today with Coach Martinez and Coach Richt," Lonnie Clemons said.

What did the Bulldog coaches tell Lonnie?

"They were saying they heard a lot of good things about me. They like what they see, and they are just waiting right now."

What are the Dawgs exactly waiting on?

"I am short on my SAT Score, and I need an 820 or an 860 on the test to get in."

Lonnie's father also notified me that Lonnie will be short one math credit if he finishes out his year at Baldwin County, making him ineligible for D1 next year. However, Georgia's plan is to get Lonnie to enroll at Hargrave Military Academy immediately, in the hopes that he will gain a qualifying SAT score, and get the math credit that he lacks currently. If Lonnie achieves the grades necessary, he could sign with Georgia and be eligible for his 2004 freshman campaign.

How does Lonnie feel about the possibility of leaving his friends in the middle of his last semester at high school?

"My friends are always going to be there. I'm thinking to myself, 'I need to go ahead and do this for me.' This is the next 4 years of my life."

Lonnie plays a need position for Georgia, and could add a bit more depth to a depleted Safety group. The Clemons family seems to be waiting on the details to be ironed out, and it looks as if Lonnie will be headed off to Hargrave in the hopes of becoming a Georgia Bulldog this upcoming season.
