Garner and Johnson Impress

As the first blizzard of the winter season rolled into the Northeast, Georgia coaches Rodney Garner and David Johnson stormed in Central Pennsylvania and into the living room of Jared Odrick.

Jared Odrick an All-American defensive lineman from Lebanon, Pa., hosted Georgia coaches Rodney Garner and David Johnson for an in-home visit on Thursday evening. Odrick has taken his allotted five official visits and will soon make a decision.

It was nothing different really, Coach Garner told me that not only do they want me they need me they want me to play the 3 technique," Odrick said. "He thinks I can be a Freshman All-American like Jeff Owens was this year, so he wants me to come in and play and the only way I won't play is if I get hurt because he's hurting on the line as is."

Question is did the Dawgs make a big enough impression?

"I don't know, all the teams are fighting right at the top, its tough to say. Odrick sighed. "I'm still looking at five right now Georgia, Penn State, Virginia Tech, Florida, and Virginia."

Odrick has a few in-home visits left, most notably an in-state school who will also be playing in a BCS bowl. "Penn State comes in next week."

The 6-foot-6, 285 pound, standout had considered announcing his decision at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, and then he thought he may decide earlier.

"I'm still thinking about it, but I don't know yet."
