Figgens: Dawgs have slight lead over Tigers

ATHENS – There was one notable player missing Georgia's summer camp from last weekend. A player many thought would be on the way to Athens by now. Instead, it seems Georgia's old rival Clemson has snuck into the recruiting race, and has made a real play for one of the top players in Georgia

Columbus' Bruce Figgens is down to Georgia and Clemson, and the race is very close he said in an interview on Monday night.

"I'm still trying to look at a few things between each school," the tight end said. "Georgia probably has a slight lead right now, but it is going to be between those two schools."

Figgens said he has enjoyed both campuses, and says he will probably won't be back to visit more – he's seen what he needs to see.

"I've been to Clemson twice and Georgia twice and I got to see everything on both visits that I wanted and needed to see. I talked to all of the people I wanted to talk to, and I've seen everything both schools have," the four-star Figgens said.

When asked if he "had enough information to make a decision", Figgens said yes. But he said that he wants to "commit before the end of the summer and before my first game going into my senior year. I definitely hope to have a decision by then."

As for this past weekend, Figgens enjoyed the seven-on-seven event he went to instead of Georgia's camp.

"It was at Flowery Branch at the Falcons facilities," he said. "It was a real good experience. I played with a lot of top players in the state like Eric Berry."

Still, Figgens would have liked to have been at Georgia's camp, he said.

"I would have liked to even if I didn't participate," he said. "I would have liked to have been there to see how the coaches coach some of the players and see some of the players there. I would have liked to have made it but I just couldn't make it."
