Back From Unofficial With New Leader

This Peach State athletic defensive lineman only played in two games last season due to a transfer rule. Those two games, along with an impressive Spring have garnered <b> Roderick Battle</b> around ten scholarship offers to this point. After camping at a few schools this summer, Battle decided to take an unofficial visit to The University of Georgia this weekend. Has anything changed in his list of favorites? Is he any closer to committing?

"My family and I went over to Athens yesterday for an unofficial visit," said Roderick Battle.

What did Battle do while visiting Georgia?

"I got to meet with Coach Richt, Coach Garner (Recruiting / DL Coach) and Defensive Coordinator, Coach VanGorder. I also toured the campus a little bit. I saw the new dorms, academic center, their facilities and walked around a little. It was all, so impressive. Everything is top of the line over there."

Was committing to UGA on Battle's mind?

"It was to be honest, but I didn't want to go through with it yet. I felt I could have committed, but I decided to wait. I want to give the other schools their chance also. I have camped at Auburn and Clemson, but have not taken a visit there yet. I plan to do so before committing. There is a possibility of me waking up one morning before those visits and just knowing 100% where I want to go, but my plans of now are to visit the other two schools."

Is Battle ready to name a leader?

"One thing I can say is Georgia is my top dawg. They are definitely my leader now, with Auburn and Clemson behind them."

What does Battle have on tap this Fall?

"I will visit Georgia officially, and I am going to attend games at Georgia this year when they play LSU and Tennessee for sure. I am sure I'll catch a game or two at Clemson and Auburn as well, but nothing is set yet."

Make sure you stay tuned to TheInsiders.com as this may turn into a border war with Georgia trying to hold off both bordering states, Alabama (Auburn) and South Carolina (Clemson). Georgia is the "Top Dawg" now but, will they be that come February 2005? Stay right here to find out.
