Massie: Georgia is my leader

If you don't already know the name Bobby Massie you soon will.

Massie, a massive lineman from Virginia, visited Georgia and Clemson this weekend, and in the process pocketed one new scholarship offer and determined a leader – not bad for a weekend trip.

"I visited Clemson and Georgia. We just left from Clemson today," he said. "I liked everything around Georgia. I got to meet all of the coaches. They showed us everything down to the clothes you get when you get there. It was real nice at Clemson. They didn't show us all of the academic parts, but we saw the stadium and stuff like that. We talked football and what it would be like to play there."

Clemson offered Massie Sunday, but the Bulldogs are firmly in the lead, he said.

"I loved it down there at Georgia. They have been talking with me for a month or so," he said. Massie indicated that the Dawgs offered him about a two weeks ago.

"I told my coach that I was interested in playing for Georgia, and he called down to Georgia and soon they were in touch. Coach Ball came up by himself, and we talked a few weeks ago. He took everything back to Georgia and they texted me letting me know that they were thinking about offering me. I got it in the mail after that."

Liberty University, located in the same city where Massie lives, was the only other school to offer the giant lineman before Georgia and Clemson. He says Liberty is still in the mix, along with in-state Virginia and Virginia Tech. But the offers from out-of-state Clemson and Georgia have Massie scratching his head with regard to why the in-state schools have not offered.

"I like Virginia Tech and Virginia," he said. "But it seems like they are not very interested in me. Virginia Tech has been by a few times, and have said that they are interested in offering me, but they haven't done that yet. I still like them, but I wonder why they haven't offered yet."

Coach Ball and offensive line coach Stacy Searles are recruiting Massie for the Bulldogs.

"Georgia is my favorite – they have been a school I have always liked," he admitted. "I met with all of the coaches down there, and I felt real comfortable down there. It looked just like home."

How quick could Georgia be his new home? Soon. Massie said Georgia is followed by Clemson and then the three Virginia schools on his list. But, he says, he may commit in the coming weeks if he doesn't get more offers to consider. Even then, he said, Georgia would be hard to beat.
