Coleman Watson has Georgia on his mind

<b>Coleman Watson</b> briefly considered scheduling other official visits, but his official visit to Georgia for the Gala on December 13th quickly made up his mind. Watson talks about Georgia's plans for him and possibly a second sport?

Official visits are good not only for the uncommitted players that teams are trying to sway, but they are good for holding on to the players that a team already has gotten. The big recruiting weekend at Georgia this weekend served both purposes well. Georgia picked up a commitment from Carleton Medder, and they firmed up commitments from two of the 101 Team members in Coleman Watson and Des Williams.

"Des and I are really good friends," said Watson. "We had talked about maybe going up to South Carolina together, and I wanted to visit LSU also. We just wanted to see some other schools and make sure we made the right choice. After this weekend though, we talked with Coach Richt, and we made up our minds. There's no reason to visit anywhere else; we're both 100% to Georgia."

Watson is a very gifted big man that could end up at several positions on the field, but right now it's tight end. "Right now they keep telling me tight end. But Coach Van Gorder has talked about me putting on some pounds and playing some defense. Either end or tackle, but I know it won't be end while David Pollack is there. He's awesome. He was my player host up there, and he's a lot of fun to be around."

Watson called on his way to a basketball game, and while he has the frame to be a very good power forward, baseball is his second sport. "We're in conditioning for baseball right now. I play first base and pitch. I may try and walk on at Georgia when I get there."

Georgia has had a lot of good news on the recruiting front this week, and they hope to get more when Sean Bailey announces his school of choice on Fox Sports Net's Countdown to signing day on Wednesday at 6:30.
