Corley discusses trip to Athens

McGill Toolen defensive end Sidell Corley continued his spring break plans Tuesday morning with a visit to Georgia. He planned to visit Alabama as well, but will wait until Wednesday. He will close-out his break with a visit to Florida.

"I learned a lot about Georgia today," said Sidell Corley from Mobile, (Ala.). "We got to Georgia around 10:00 a.m. this morning. They showed us around the campus and everything."

"I learned a lot about their academics. As far as their academics go, they have the best plan that I have seen from all the other schools I have visited. They are real disciplined about their academics."

"We went to the museum. I saw all the bowl games and championships they have won. They have put a lot of people in the NFL. They have over 40 players in the NFL right now. Everything about the trip was positive."

Corley went away from Athens with a different impression than when he arrived.

"It was just like I thought with Auburn," he said. "I knew nothing about Georgia. I thought they were very deep, but they broke down the depth chart for me. I would get playing time if I went there."

The 6-4, 250-pound defensive star spent time with two Georgia coaches and stated, "I spent a lot of time with the defensive coordinator [Willie Martinez], coach [Rodney] Garner and the academic coordinator."

"Coach Garner was real cool. He said he has tough love for his players. He is real cool with them off the field, but during practice he is going to work them hard. He said his players can call him anytime, and they come over to eat dinner as well."

Corley named his favorites, and it's a five school race for his signature.

"Georgia is in now," he said. "It's Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Georgia and Ole Miss. I don't have an overall favorite. They are all equal."

Coach Mike Shula will play host to Corley Wednesday, and the elite defensive end will visit Gainesville Saturday for Florida's Orange and Blue game.
