Sturdivant ready for camp in Athens

ATHENS – Georgia's annual summer camp, which features some of the top players in the South interested in the Bulldogs, will include one of the top players in the South already committed to the Dawgs. The camp runs from Friday to Saturday at the practice fields.

Trinton Sturdivant, an offensive lineman from North Carolina, said that he will be in Athens for Georgia's summer camp this weekend.

"It felt right at home the last time I was in Athens," Sturdivant said of his recent visit to the school.

Sturdivant, who picked Georgia over Clemson, Florida, North Carolina and North Carolina State, has been trying to convince other players he has come in contact with that Georgia is the place for them, too.

"I tell guys the truth about Georgia. I tell them how good Georgia is, and how they've won the SEC so much recently. I tell guys about Matthew Stafford, and that he's going to be there for a while. I talk about the running backs Georgia has. I talk about the positions the guys that I am talking to are going play," Sturdivant said.

Sturdivant is one of Georgia's highest-rated commitments so far. According to Scout.com Sturdivant is a four-star prospect. The network ranks him as the 28th best prospect in the South, but third behind only James Wilson and Georgia native Chris Little. Georgia's other offensive lineman, Tanner Strickland, is also ranked in the top 100 in the South.

"My high school team has been working hard to get ready for the coming season," he said. "We've been hitting the sled, and stuff like that all summer. We've been lifting weights every day."

Sturdivant is one of six Georgia commits that will be at Georgia's camp this weekend. Only South Carolina's Charles White may not make the camp.
