"It was really good. I liked it," linebacker T.J. Pridemore said.
Pridemore, whose father played for Bobby Bowden at West Virginia and then in the NFL, was not accompanied by teammate Omar Hunter, a powerful defensive tackle many are recruiting. It was not the first time Pridemore had visited Athens, but it had been some time since he last was in town.
"The last time I went was last fall, it was the Tech game," he said. "The atmosphere was great then and it was the same good atmosphere."
"The defense looked great," he said. "The offense was trying to get into rhythm, but the defense kept hitting them."
Pridemore has visited the Rebels, Gamecocks and Duke and says he will likely return to Athens.
"Georgia wants me to come to a one-day junior camp," he said. "They want to get a better look at me then."
While his father played for the Mountaineers, Pridemore said that won't effect where he goes to school. In fact, he said, he's always liked the Dawgs.
"Because I grew up in Georgia, I have always watched and pulled for them – particularly since Mark Richt came to Georgia a few years ago," he said.
