Atwater takes in Athens

Steven Atwater is another top GAC recruit from the class of 2010.

Steven Atwater will be one of the top defensive backs for the class of 2010 and if his name sounds familiar you would be right. His dad is former Pro Bowl safety for the Denver Broncos Steven Atwater. Atwater says he doesn't feel any extra pressure from his dad and he usually gives advice but lets Steven be his own player.

The GAC corner has heard from the likes of Arkansas (dad's Alma Mater), Vanderbilt, Central Florida, Notre Dame, and South Carolina.

He hasn't heard much from Georgia yet but he's hoping that will change considering he just got back from a three day camp in Athens.

"I've been in Athens since Sunday afternoon and I really enjoyed it. It was my first trip there and I really liked the facilities and the coaches."

Atwater was able to see some good competition and thought he held his own.

"The camp went pretty well and I think I performed well in the one on one drills against receivers. I was able to get a couple of interceptions during the one on one period."

Steven is hoping that his performance at the camp was able to turn the Georgia's coaches heads.

"I previously haven't thought much about Georgia but after going there and seeing the facilities and meeting the coaches I really liked everything about it. Georgia's facilities were the first college facility I had seen and I was impressed. Their locker room reminded me of an NFL locker room."

The Georgia coaches showed Steven some attention while he was there.

"I got to meet Coach Martinez and Coach Richt and talk with both of them. I really liked Coach Richt. He didn't yell a lot and I like that about him."

Atwater is unsure about the rest of the summer and said that he may be going to Clemson for camp but wasn't certain. When asked about the summer workouts at GAC he had nothing but positives.

"The workouts are going really well and they aren't just getting us bigger, stronger, and faster. They are really helping to bring the team together which I like."
