Linebacker to Visit Georgia

Bani Gbadyu came away from his recent official visit to Penn State impressed with just about everything that transpired. Gbadyu a 6-foot-1, 210 pound, linebacker from Quince Orchard High in Gaithersburg, Md., has already given the Tigers of LSU a verbal commitment, but decided to visit Penn State and will visit Georgia this weekend.

"Penn State was amazing," Bani Gbadyu said. "I got to meet Derrick Williams who was my host and Joe Paterno."

I got to go to coach Paterno's house and meet his family. They didn't try to push me away from LSU at all that really impressed me. They did tell me I would have a chance to contribute early on defense or special teams."

"The defense is impressive they shut (Brian) Calhoun down and he was a Heisman candidate, they shut down (Laurence) Maroney also, and he was another Heisman guy. They play a physical scheme on defense that fits my style of play."

Gbadyu will take a 6:00 A.M. flight to Athens this weekend to visit the Georgia Bulldogs.

"Me and Akeem Hebron (Georgia Commitment) were talking about them, so I figured I have to go see it for myself. Georgia is a great school so I have to check them out."

There are a lot of variables that will factor into his final decision. That is a decision that he is preparing to make after this final visit to Georgia.

"I'm still committed to LSU, but I'm just trying to find the best fit for me. There's been a lot of things come about in my family the past few months so I want to make sure I don't go real far away from them, and it would be nice to be close to my high school."

Penn State is nice because it is close. I want to go somewhere I can contribute early and I can do that at LSU. I'm going to finish my visit to Georgia then sit down with my family and my coach and make my final decision."
