UGA Commit Takes Visit to Athens

5-Star LB Akeem Hebron made a verbal commitment to the Georgia Bulldogs in the month of July and he chose this past weekend to take his official visit down to Athens. He had a great trip to the Classic City and he talks to Scout.com about the trip as well as the status of his commitment.

"Right now I'm 100% committed. I liked the visit a lot. It was a great visit," Akeem Hebron said.

Hebron liked the bond amongst the players.

"The team is really a close group and I like that a lot. It felt just like my high school and how close we are. I went down there before but actually meeting the players this time made me like it even more."

Freshman DB Bryan Evans hosted the Northeastern standout on his trip.

"I hung out with him a lot. On our free time we chilled and he showed me some fun things about the school. He's a real funny guy and I just like his philosophy on everything."

As is the case with most recruits that visit UGA, Akeem came away very impressed with the new dormatory facility.

"The dorms are one of the best parts about Georgia. It's so roomy, I just love it. You come in and you get to stay with 3 other people and you just share a bathroom with one person instead of sharing a bathroom with a whole floor like you do at some schools."

Akeem was chosen to represent the East squad at the Scout.com Army All-American Bowl in a couple of weeks and he got to spend some time with fellow Army All-American and Georgia commit, Justin Anderson this weekend in Athens.

"I told him I was really looking forward to going out there and so was he. They asked me who I wanted to room with out there and they told me it may be Justin Anderson since were both committed to Georgia so we may be roommates out there. I was going to get his number and call him but I didn't get a chance before I left."

Recently, Hebron's HS teammate Drew Gloster made a verbal commitment to the Maryland Terrapins. Shortly after going public, he commented that he would try and get Akeem to join him in College Park and swap his commitment from the Dawgs to the Terps. When Hebron was asked to comment on Gloster's remarks, he denied.

"I'm not discussing that publically," Hebron said.

He declined to elaborate further on the subject and just reiterated that he was 100% committed to the Georgia Bulldogs.

We hope to have more on this situation in the near future...
