UGA captures Cann's interest

A.J. Cann traveled over to Athens Saturday for UGA's first Junior Day. Cann has become a hot prospect in the Palmetto State and the Dawgs have captured his interest. Get the scoop here.

"The visit went real good and everything was great at Georgia," said Cann. "I had been there one time before, but this is the first time I got to see everything, tour the campus, and all that, so it was great."

On Junior Day, prospects see a lot and they are given a lot to take in. Cann took it all in on Saturday and he talks about what stood out to him while in Athens.

"The Academic Center that the players go to every day to study and stuff was really nice. I like the field house too where they have the weight room, the trophies, the practice facilities, and all that. I know they are building on to that also and that is going to be great. I really like the housing there too, it was very pretty there."

When not touring the campus, he got to meet some coaches off the Bulldog staff. A trio of Bulldog coaches spent a little time with the 2010 lineman as well. It looks like Georgia likes Cann on both sides of the ball.

"I talked to Coach [Stacy] Searels, Coach [Jon] Fabris, and Coach [Rodney] Garner while there. Coach Searels talked to me a little about offensive line and I think he likes me there and Coach Garner is really interested in me on the defensive line. Coach Fabris (recruits South Carolina for UGA) likes me a lot too and he asked me about spring practice because he wants to come out and check me out. I think Georgia is going to recruit me as an offensive and defensive lineman because they seemed interested in me as both."

The 6-foot-3, 265 pound Bamberg-Ehrhardt star knows UGA has interest in him, so what is his interest in them?

"They haven't offered me yet, but I am very interested in them," said Cann. "I am going to stay interested in Georgia, but I am just staying open to everyone right now. I am going to look at everyone."

A.J. Cann picked up offer number six on Saturday and it was from Tulsa. He also has offers from Clemson, Georgia Tech, Middle Tennessee State, Oklahoma, and South Carolina.
