4-Star Matthews Camps In Athens

One of the biggest camper's over the weekend in Athens was Cliff Matthews. The big man from South Carolina put on a heck of a show along 2008 DE Cornelius Washington and he walked away from the Classic City with the Bulldogs still out in front for his services.

"I liked the one on one drills a lot. I think I did pretty good overall. The whole camp was a lot of fun," Cliff Matthews said.

Georgia DE coach John Fabris is one of the most focused individuals you will see on a football field and he spent a lot of time with Matthews one on one.

"On defense I learned a lot about keeping my feet closer together and using my hands. Coach Fabris is a real intense guy and I like that a lot."

Cliff says the facilities at UGA stand out above all of the others that he's seen thus far.

"The facilities are all nice. The best I've seen so far. The dorms are like apartments. The stadium is huge and everything. I liked that a lot."

After the camp completed just before noon on Saturday, the South Carolina standout was escorted up to head coach Mark Richt's office.

"Coach Richt was talking to me about doing the right thing and staying out of trouble. I told him I really liked Georgia and that they were number one and leading."

Georgia commit's Rennie Curran, Charles White, Trinton Sturdivant and Tanner Strickland were all very active on the recruiting front over the weekend and they were also in Matthew's ear as well.

"A lot of the commitments were talking to me about coming to Georgia. I talked to Charles White the most. He's got a real good personality and he's also from South Carolina."

Despite their lead at this juncture, Bulldog fans will have to sweat out Cliff's decision at least until the end of the summer.

"I'll probably wait until early August some time to commit. I just want to take some time and visit South Carolina and Clemson again."
