National Hot 100 CB Visits Athens

<b>Michael Ray Garvin</b> of Don Bosco High School in Ramsey, New Jersey took a trip to Athens, GA for his second of five official visits. He tripped to Florida State a few weeks ago and is on his way back home from his trip to Georgia. This cover corner has blazing speed and loves to play physical. This New Jersey Prep Star had the Noles and Dawgs on top of his list. Did this visit change anything?

"I am still in the Atlanta Airport trying to get home, but our flight is running late," said Michael Ray Garvin.

What did Garvin think about his trip to Athens?

"It was great. I really had a very good trip."

What stood out to Garvin about his visit to Georgia?

"The game really stood out. The crowd was into the game until the very end even though Georgia was losing. It was loud and I was really hoping Georgia could pull it out in the end."

Garvin will take The Insiders through his official visit to Georgia…

"I got to Athens Saturday morning and checked in the hotel. I then headed over and met up with the coaches and loaded on a bus for the Dawg Walk. That was a lot of fun…all the fans and everything. I really liked that a lot."

"I then went out and watched the players go through pre-game which was nice. I checked out the stadium and everything. I then went into the locker room with the players and heard Coach Richt give his pre-game speech. That was really nice. He is right to the point and just reminds the players of all the little things before the game. I then went up to my seats and watched the game."

"The atmosphere and crowd were great. It was very loud most of the game; the crowd was great. I then went back to Coach VanGorder's (defensive coordinator) house and ate dinner with him, Coach Martinez (Defensive backs coach and Garvin's recruiting coach), Antonio Clay and our hosts. My host was Tra Battle for my visit."

"After we ate dinner, I went out to Athens with Tra and we just hung out and had fun. That was pretty much it for Saturday night. Sunday, I got to tour the campus and I liked that a lot. It was very nice. I then went over to the new dorms and they are very impressive. Last, I got to learn about the academics at Georgia, which are very good also. I then talked to Coach Richt and ended up leaving Sunday evening."

Is Garvin any closer to a commitment?

"No, I really didn't (think about committing). Not that I didn't like Georgia, but I just know I am going to take all five visits and then commit some time in December."

Now that this lock down corner has taken two visits to prestigious Universities, how does he compare the two?

"I would have to say Georgia's visit was better overall. This visit went better."

How would Garvin rate his visit to Georgia?

"I would give it a nine. I am not sure what could have been better, though. It was a great trip."

"I just wish Georgia could have pulled it out."

Garvin still plans to visit Oklahoma, Colorado and the fifth team to get a visit is still undecided. It is between Boston College, Purdue, Rutgers and maybe a few more.

Did this visit change Garvin's current favorites?

"Georgia and Florida State are still my leaders. After that, Colorado and Oklahoma."

Garvin is already fully qualified and will major in Business Management.

This national recruit will take his remaining three visits here in the next few months and have a decision in December. Stay locked in on and find out all the latest on this lightening quick, lock down corner out of New Jersey.
