ATHENS – Dallas Lee got something he's been very eager to get for a long time on Saturday.

The lineman from Buford got an offer from Georgia – the school whose games he's been attending for some time.

"Coach Searels took me to the side and he told me that they were offering," Lee said.

Lee is considered one of the top linemen in Georgia. He teamed up with Florida commitments Omar Hunter and T.J. Pridemore to provide the Wolves with one of the best defenses in Georgia high school football. That defense helped Buford with the AA State Championship in the fall.

"Georgia likes me at center or guard on the offensive line," Lee said. "I've been talking with Coach Searels for some time, and I really like him."

Georgia already has two linemen committed to them, Northside's Abry Jones, who committed to the Dawgs last week, and Troup County's Chris Burnette. Lee said he was glad that he got the offer from Georgia. He previously had offers from Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt and Tennessee. The Vols, Lee said, have interested him of late.

"I went up to Tennessee last weekend, and I really like the coaches up there," Lee said. "They like me on the defensive line. I like Tennessee's facilities a lot, too."

According to Lee, Florida State offered him on Saturday as well. He plans on taking a trip to check out Tallahassee this coming weekend. Lee said he doesn't really care if he plays offense or defense in college.

"I'm leaning towards offense, but that doesn't really matter as much to me," he said. "I think I am going to pick the school and go with what they think is best for me – offense or defense."

Lee said he's going to try to pick his college choice before the end of spring practice, which is in May.
