Greenlee: Georgia Stands out

The state of Georgia has some very talented offensive lineman for the class of 2007. Jeffersonville's Chris Little is getting most of the publicity but there's another standout from Columbus (GA) Hardaway that will get his due soon.

Antwane Greenlee, a 6-foot-5 and 300 pound offensive tackle, has already caught the eye of several big-time programs. "I got offers from Georgia, Auburn and Ole Miss," Greenlee said. "I've already been to a junior day at Georgia and I will attend ones at both Clemson and Mississippi State."

Right now, the athletic big-man has two teams that standout the most to him.

"Georgia standouts out because of Coach Mark Richt," he said. "I really got to know coach at the junior day and I was very impressed. I really like Bobby Bowden and I grew up a fan of Florida State."

Others schools that he's high on are Auburn, Clemson and Mississippi State.

What are the Noles chances with Greenlee?

"If the Noles offer, they will be on top," he said.

Greenlee is a solid student in the classroom and he's already academically qualified for college.

"Academics and graduation rate of the schools will be important to me," he said. "The coaching staff and early playing time will also be factors in my decision. Our head coach really does a nice job of separating football from class. He's all about us doing well in school."

The Columbus (GA) standout is incredible athlete for his size. He's even caught a few passes while playing tight end.

"I can run a 5.1 40-yard dash," he said. "However, I feel my strength is my power-blocking. I can bench-press 370 pounds and I can squat 480."
