Savage gets offered by Georgia

Georgia wants to sign just two quarterbacks for the class of 2009, and one signal caller just got an offer.

"Georgia is definitely going to be one my top schools," said Tom Savage. "I like coach Bobo and their style of offense."

Considered one of the top players in the class of 2009, Savage has been on Georgia's radar for some time now. Bobo went to visit Savage last week. He then returned to Athens in order to lobby for a scholarship for Savage at Friday's recruiting meeting. Bobo then called Savage's coach and let him know that the Bulldogs had offered.

"It was really glad to hear that," Savage said. "I like the way Georgia does things."

Savage said in an earlier interview that he plans on visiting the Bulldogs this spring. He also said he has no problem with the Bulldogs signing two quarterbacks in 2009. Instead of focusing on that, and any other recruiting situations, Savage said he is still trying to become a better quarterback.

"I spend time with a personal trainer two times a week," he said. "I also spent time studying defenses each Sunday. That's about an hour-and-a-half drive from my house, so it can take up a good chunk of the day."

Why the time spent working on identifying defensive schemes?

"I know things are going to be different in college," he said. "Everyone is so much faster and better up there. I need to get better and learning what to do in certain situations."

For now, however, Savage has done enough to get an offer from Georgia – not a bad situation to be in at all.
