White enjoys unoffical visit to Athens

Charles White spent much of his Saturday afternoon taking in the surrounding of what will be his new school in less than a year.

"I was just picturing myself playing out there," White said.

White's Blythewood Bengals beat Lamar (SC) Friday night, and then he and his parents got in the car and took the three hour drive to Athens from their home near Columbia, South Carolina.

"We got up early to get there in time for the kickoff," White said with a smile on his face.

White was pleased to see the enthusiasm of the Bulldog fans.

"They just get behind the team so much. When we were driving into town it seemed like they painted the town red," he said. "Everything was red."

White spent some of his time Saturday talking with Cheraw (SC) defensive lineman Cliff Matthews. It seemed Georgia was in the lead for defensive end, but Matthews decided in August to visit South Carolina, Clemson and Georgia before making his decision.

"We talked for a while, but not about football or anything like that," White said. "Mainly we talked about life."

White's Bengals have a big match up with rival Richland Northeast this Friday night. White joined Bruce Figgings, Antwane Greenlee, Clint Boling, among others, in visiting the school. White's visit was unofficial.
