Danny Verdun has made it clear; he will be a Dawg when signing day rolls around. Verdun will take his official visit to Georgia on January 17th and will make no other visits to any other schools. He said that he is ready to play for Georgia.
"The coaches still call me and everything is good," said the linebacker.
The only thing that Verdun will have to wait on is his test score. Like all other NCAA athletes, Verdun must qualify academically in order to play. "I took the ACT last Saturday," he said. The results of the test will be known in a few weeks time.
When talking about next season Verdun said, "if I work hard enough and I prepare myself, then I feel like I can come in and contribute." Georgia will lose both Tony Gilbert and Boss Bailey from their impressive linebacking group. Verdun said that he is excited that Georgia is securing good linebackers in the recruiting process.
"I am glad that Georgia is picking a real good group of linebackers. I have seen a few of the names. I have played against Des Williams and he's a real good linebacker. It should be a good linebacker crew," Verdun said.
Verdun showed that he is already a Georgia partisan saying, "Coach Fabris was telling me about the team leaving for the Sugar Bowl and I'm excited to see them play Florida State because I don't like Florida State at all."
