Nuss Visits Athens

If the University of Georgia has one glaring need to address in the class of 2007, it's the offensive line. The Dawgs have sought help to fill the void up and down the east coast and this weekend they got a big visit from Virginia OL Andrew Nuss. He talks all about the trip in this interview with Scout.com.

"It went pretty well. I had lots of fun. I toured all the academic facilities and met the coaches. It was a really good time," Andrew Nuss said.

Nuss spent a lot of time with two fellow Bulldog recruits.

"I got to meet Conrad Obi who has already committed and Antwane Greenlee who is looking at Georgia. Conrad is a really nice guy and a great speaker." As would be expected, Nuss saw a relatively clear path to playing time in Athens.

"Georgia's depth chart looks very good. They really need linemen. They like me most at guard right now."

New Georgia RB coach Tony Ball came to the Bulldogs in the off season from Virginia Tech so it's no surprise the Dawgs would assign him to recruit the Virginia OL.

"All the coaches are very nice. Coach Richt is one of the best coaches I've met and Coach Ball is a great guy. We've had guys go to Virginia Tech from my high school when Coach Ball was there so he knew about me already. My parents think he's a great guy."

The living situation in Athens was a big hit for Nuss.

"I thought the academic center was very good. My parents were really liked it. The dorms are awesome and they're only two years old. I like that they're apartment style."

"The football facilities are awesome. I heard they were going to expand some things and I don't think they need it. The weight room is great and the stadium was pretty amazing. Even though I saw it empty, just picturing over 92,000 people in there kind of took my breath away."

Next up on Andrew's tour will be a trip to the northeast and possibly another visit to South Bend.

"I'm going to Boston College tomorrow and then I may go to Notre Dame once again after that."

The visits are coming at a hastened pace because Nuss plans to have a decision by the time football season rolls back around.

"I still don't have a top five but I'm going to make my decision by the end of the summer."
