"It was great to make it to Georgia and see some of campus life," Pugh said of his visit to Athens. "I got to meet some of the players I had not met before."

Pugh committed to the Bulldogs earlier this summer at a press conference in Charlotte. He is considered one of the top 15 players in North Carolina and is also considered a three-star prospect by Scout.com. Pugh's commitment to Georgia gave the Bulldogs two cornerbacks for the class of 2008. Fayette County's Brandon Boykin had committed to Georgia in March.

"Brandon and I talked briefly," Pugh said. "We talked about the camp and the practices and what it will be like at Georgia."

Pugh said he got to meet some of Georgia's current players like linebacker Charles White, Prince Miller and former Independence players Joe Cox and Mohammed Massaquoi.

"I actually did not know Joe and Mohammed very well when they were at Independence," Pugh admitted. "But I have gotten to get to know them better since I have committed to Georgia."

As for the camp, Pugh said he would have liked to have made it to the Mark Richt camp in time to participate, but that he had another obligation that Friday night which prevented him from showing up until the following day. Still, he said he looked around Athens enough to know that he is excited about his future there.

"It's hard to not think about playing in front of 93,000 people on Saturdays when you drive by the stadium," he said.
