Checking in with Georgia Commitment

Georgia's first commitment this year was <b>Marcus Washington</b> of Burke County High School. Washington committed back in May, but when we spoke to him in August, he was still being recruited by other teams. Is that still the case?

"Nah, I am not getting calls letters or calls anymore, which is good," said Marcus Washington. "I only talk to Georgia now and that is how I want it."

He only talks to Georgia, so he must be a solid commitment for the Dawgs, right?

While laughing, Washington said, "I am 100% solid to Georgia. No doubt about it."

Washington has taken in two games in Athens this year, and he plans to be back there for their final game against Georgia Tech this weekend. What has he thought of trips to Athens?

"They were great. I love the campus, the atmosphere and the fans. The fans show me so much love up there, which is nice. I look forward to heading back this weekend."

Has Washington met any other Georgia commitments yet?

"I met Ian Smith at the LSU game, but he is the only one so far. I hope to meet some others this weekend and then again on my official visit."

Speaking of official visit, when does he plan to take his to Athens?

"I'll be there on January 14th."

Marcus Washington is being recruited to play middle linebacker at Georgia. He played both linebacker and running back for Burke County this year. At linebacker, he had 127 tackles, 21 tackles for loss and two sacks. At running back, he had 831 yards rushing and 16 touchdowns.

Washington is on track to be fully qualified and plans to be in Athens the summer of 2005.
