Coaches Already Know - Coates to Georgia

Greenwood, South Carolina native Antavious Coates has made his decision.

Greenwood (SC) FS/WR Antavious Coates (6-4, 200, 4.55) says that tomorrow (7/31) he is officially committing to Georgia. "I have already told the coaches but I'll make it official tomorrow. They want me to play FS," said Coates.

Finishing second and third were Clemson and Auburn.

"I went to Georgia yesterday (7/29) for an unofficial visit and I just decided that's the place for me."

"My commitment will be 100%. I won't change my mind. Georgia's been with me from the beginning. They've been recruiting me the hardest. Virginia Tech and North Carolina are talking about offering but if I talk to them I'll just tell them I'm not interested. My parents are happy with my decision.

"I like the coaching staff at Georgia and the way they interact with their players. They're really serious. They know what they want out of me. They have high expectations. Georgia also has a great football program. It speaks for itself. I felt like it was a perfect fit.

"I like the town around Georgia. It's a football town. Everybody looks forward to Saturdays.

"I'd say some of my strengths are my size and my speed. I'm real physical. I like to play on both sides of the ball. I love to have the ball in my hands. I need to work on putting on more weight and getting stronger."
