4-Star WR Talks About UGA Visit

Georgia had an outstanding selection of talent at it's annual summer camp last week in Athens. One of the top players overall that chose to attend was Tift County's Israel Troupe. He had a great visit to Athens and he tells Scout.com all about it inside.

"My visit went well but I didn't really work out because I had to go to a baseball game later that day. I just went and met with all of the coaches," Israel Troupe said.

A major portion of the Bulldogs offensive coaching staff sat down with Troupe to lay out their plans for him should he choose to join the Bulldogs.

"I met with Coach Eason, Coach Callaway and Coach Richt all up in their office. I liked Coach Richt a lot. He talked to me one on one and let me know what's going on. Everyone I talked to was real nice and cool."

Israel had been to Athens so many times that he was already very familiar with most of the facilities.

"I know the Butts-Mehre building like the back of my hand so I just walked around it for a little while. I've already seen everything they have."

Georgia told the Tift County star that he could also play baseball but that he would have to take care of football before anything else.

"I understand I can play both baseball and football at their school but I have to establish myself in football first. If I get the offense down quickly and I'm competing at a high level then I can go and play baseball as well."

It's an all SEC-East battle for his commitment right now.

"I've still got Florida, Georgia and South Carolina as the top three. Maryland, Ohio State, LSU and Louisville are still in it also though. I'm not ruling anyone out."

Troupe would like to have a decision in by the time his season with the Blue Devils is complete.

"I'm gonna try and make it if not before my senior season, then during my senior season. I want to make my commitment before it's over.

Israel's next stop will take him to Gainesville, FL on the 21st for the Gators' Friday Night Lights event…
