Lasr Minute Decision Turns into Big SEC Offer

<b>Mike Moore</b>, the smooth wide receiver/safety out of Pompano Beach, Fla. decided at the last minute to camp at Georgia, and now he is glad he did. The <a href=";p=3&amp;blipid=11645">South Hot 100</a> athlete picked up another big offer.

"A Coach of mine called me up at the last minute and asked me if I wanted to go camp at Georgia with four other players. I am very happy he did because I learned a lot about the University of Georgia and on top of that I received a scholarship offer," says Mike Moore.

How does Moore feel he faired at the camp?

"I think it went really, really well. I started out at defensive back, and then they asked me to run some routes at wide receiver. I ran two routes and Coach Eason pulled me aside and told Mark Richt, this is my guy, this is the guy I want. After that, I finished out Friday at wide receiver. Then on Saturday, I went 50/50 offense and defense because Coach Van Gorder was telling Coach Richt he wanted me at Safety. When camp finished Coach Richt took me into his office and offered me a scholarship. That made the whole last minute thing very much worth it."

Other than the camp itself, what else stood out?

"I didn't realize the academics were so good at Georgia. That really impressed me. I loved the city, the atmosphere and was just amazed at Coach Richt. It's the man he is and the kind of guy he is."

Who is in Moore's Top Five?

"Don't really have a top five yet, but Georgia is definitely one of them. I already assured Coach Eason, Coach Van Gorder and Coach Richt that Georgia will definitely be one of my visits this Fall. I am open to the other four schools."

Georgia is number 23 in schools to offer Mike. The Bulldogs join the likes of Tennessee, Notre Dame, Ole Miss, Maryland, Auburn, Pittsburgh and many more to offer the Florida athlete.

Moore is on the right track academically as he posts a 2.4 GPA with an even 1000 on his first SAT attempt.
