Haverkamp to commit on visit to Georgia

ATHENS – Georgia's class of 2007 will have one more player this Sunday if everything goes the way Scott Haverkamp wants it.

"I am hoping to leave there a Bulldog. I plan on committing this weekend unless something weird happens," Haverkamp said in a phone interview.

Haverkamp's upcoming commitment to Georgia means that the Bulldogs will have a slew of offensive linemen coming to compete for starting jobs in the spring. Offensive tackle Vince Vance, center/guard Joe Blaes, guard Tanner Strickland and tackle Trinton Sturdivant will all be in Athens for sure, but Hargrave offensive linemen Justin Anderson and Ben Harden could also be there, too, if their grades are in order.

As for Haverkamp, he said he was certain Georgia was the place for him "about a week or a week and a half ago."

The Bulldogs are not taking any chances, however, as Recruiting Coordinator Rodney Garner was at Butler Community College today visiting the former Kansas Jayhawk.

"I told have told them that they were my leader, but I want to go and see it myself," Haverkamp said. "I hear a lot of good things about Athens."

This is the second time Haverkamp has gone through the recruiting process, and this time, two years older and wiser, he says he won't make the same mistake as before.

"The second time around you can see through what people are saying and you can see which people are being real," Haverkamp said. "When I was at Kansas I was not a very good player, Butler was like a miracle for me they really worked on me. They turned me into a football player."

Now the Bulldogs will give Haverkamp his shot at being a starter for one of the elite programs in the country. He has two years two play two seasons, and he thinks that will start after the New Year.

"I will move in on January 2nd," Haverkamp said. "I don't know how the bowl practices would work. We have not discussed that yet."
