Georgia on his Mind?

Christian Ballard is a big 4 Star athlete from Kansas that is committed to the Jayhawks, but it is likely he will take some visits before Signing Day. Find out why the Georgia Bulldogs might be on his mind.

"I am committed to Kansas," said Christian Ballard. "Being from Lawrence I am very familiar with the Kansas staff and the campus."

Ballard has not always lived in Kansas though.

 "I moved to Kansas from Marietta, Ga. in the sixth grade. I still have a lot of friends that I stay in touch with in Georgia. I talk to them on the phone and some have visited me here."

While Christian is committed to Kansas, there are two schools that he would like to visit. 

"I would like to see Georgia and Oklahoma."

Christian had this to say about his reason for interest in the Bulldogs.

"Georgia is a big school and I know a lot of people in Georgia. Georgia is also a nice place to live."

The Bulldogs' success on the field has not gone unnoticed to Ballard either.

"Georgia has won their conference or played for their conference championship a lot lately. They have also played in some major bowls."

A recent conversation with Coach Mark Richt left a very favorable impression on Ballard. 

"Coach Richt seems like a great man, and I can't wait to meet him. I hope I can visit Georgia before schools starts this fall. I don't know as much about Oklahoma, but I do want to learn more about them and visit their campus."

Ballard was one of the top big athletes at the Scout.com Combine this year. Ballard measured 6-4 and 280 pounds and had a blazing 4.76 forty time. Ballard has the speed to play defensive end or tight end and the size to play defensive tackle.
