Vasser Loves Visit to Georgia

ATHENS – Chase Vasser wanted his grandfather to see up close what he had already seen.

So after tailgating with his family, the linebacker commit took his grandfather to the Butts-Mehre Building to see the various trophies and jewels of the Bulldogs.

"He's such a big Georgia fan," Vasser said. "And I just wanted him to see everything that we got to see."

Vasser took in the Blackout with the rest of the Bulldog commits. Vasser said he spent time with nearly all of the committed Dawgs. Even one Dawg who could not make it was kept in touch by Vasser.

"I kept texting Arthur Fontaine," he said with a laugh. "We must have done it all night long."

Vasser said he was excited to meet some of the recruits who he'd not yet met face-to-face.

"You feel like you get to know these guys by text, and then you meet them and it's a lot of fun. Dallas Lee and I were screaming at each other going up the stairs to our seats. I just really had a lot of fun."

Vasser's most interesting discussion of the night came with fellow linebacker Mike Gilliard, who's commitment in the spring made Vasser think twice about wanting to stick with Georgia. Still, Vasser decided to remain committed to Georgia, but didn't know what to think about Gilliard until he met him.

"We were just sitting there watching the linebacker, and we were talking about playing here," Vasser said. "At first I was like: ‘Oh man, that's my competition for playing time.' But I really felt like I got to know him, and I really had a lot of fun talking with him about everything."

Vasser, who had been committed to the Bulldogs since February of this year, said he was disappointed to hear that Gilliard would not be able to enroll early at Georgia. He also added that he is not certain if he will take his official visit the weekend of the Tennessee game or the following week against Vanderbilt.
