Massaquoi interested in Dawgs

One high-flying member of the Massaquoi family is already in Athens – another one could be at Georgia when all is said and done.

Jonathan Massaquoi, the cousin of current starting wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi, indicated that he is interested in playing football at Georgia, even thought he does not yet have an offer from the Bulldogs.

"It would be great to play up there with my cousin," the Central Gwinnett linebacker said. "It motivates me to see how well he is doing up there right now. I want to do that good or better."

Massaquoi does not have an offer from a Division I institution yet, but does have offers from both Indiana State and Tennessee-Chattanooga. He said, however, that he will camp at Memphis and Georgia this summer – and possibly two other schools.

"Right now my options are open," he said. "I will go work out for any school, and the one that suits me best for my skills and academics – that's where I am going to go."

Massaquoi plays in highly-competitive Gwinnett County where he competes against the likes of current Georgia commitments Conrad Obi and Rennie Curran as well as highly-touted prospects like five-star rated running back Caleb King. He says it is the goal of he and his teammates at Central Gwinnett to not only make it to the playoffs in 2006, but to go in as the region champions.

"We are returning a lot of guys from last year," Massaquoi said. "Our number one goal is to go to state, but our number two goal is to go out in our region and be number one. We don't want to be second, third, or fourth – we want to be number one in our region."

Doing that could help Massaquoi realize his dream of playing big-time college football.
