"They did not offer but they did offer a preferred walk on position," he said. Georgia has had one of the best punters in the nation the last few seasons in Jonathon Kilgo. But because of Kilgo's graduation the punting spot will be open in 2003.
"When we got there we went out to eat and went back to Richt's house. We saw all of the players and the assistant coaches and their wives. Brian Jordan was my host. I was also with Billy Bennett and Andy Bailey was there too," said Coutu of the visit to Athens.
"They showed us a lot of the improvements that they are making at the University and we also went to the basketball game. Then we went to the stadium for dinner. It was a lot of fun. We went on the field and acted like it was game time," added Coutu.
Coutu said that he was told what Georgia needed in a punter from some special teams coaches. "Coach Johnson told me about everything that they are looking for in the punting scheme and where I need to be with my hang time," said Coutu.
But Georgia is not the only school interested in Coutu. Middle Tennessee State, Georgia Tech, and Georgia Southern have all let him know that they are interested in him. "Tech is in the same situation as Georgia with the punting. They also need a field goal kicker," said Coutu.
"I have narrowed it down to Tech, Georgia, and Georgia Southern," said Coutu. He went on to say that Georgia Southern is the only school that might offer for him a partial scholarship.
"If Georgia offered I would go to Georgia," he said.
