What did Autry think of Athens?

One of the top juniors in Georgia spent Saturday in Athens. Myles Autry left impressed and he talks about his visit to UGA here.

Myles Autry will be one of the most coveted prospects out of Georgia in 2014 and one of the in-state schools had him on their campus Saturday.

Autry had a good trip in Athens.

"I have been to Georgia three or four times now and I had a good time Saturday," Autry said. "I met most of the coaches, I saw most of the campus, and I enjoyed it."

Bryan McClendon is the running backs coach for Georgia and he got some one-on-one time with Autry early in the visit.

"Coach McClendon pulled me aside and we went into one of their meeting rooms. We watches some film, he showed me how he wanted to get me in space, how he wanted to get the ball in my hands, and how he wanted to use me at running back, in the slot, and on special teams."

Autry liked the sound of that.

"I want the ball in my hands, Coach McClendon said all the right things. He wants to use me in a lot of different ways and I like that."

Head Coach Mark Richt talked to Autry about his team, the school he works for, and his feelings for the guys he coaches.

"I like Coach Richt and I like how he cares about his players. He really talked to me about the UGA program, where it is right now, and how it would be good for me. I liked talking with him."

The trip to Athens was a good one for the 5-foot-11, 170 pound junior out of Norcross, Ga. and it appears it was a good one for the Dawgs too.

"Georgia is a great school, they have nice facilities, it seems lie everyone has fun there, and this visit really caught my attention," Autry told Scout.

"I had a real good time and I like Georgia. I know I will be looking at them hard and I will visit them again."

He will be in Knoxville, Tenn. next weekend visiting the University of Tennessee. The Vols, like Georgia and many others have offered the 2014 Scout300 prospect.

Autry does plan to take the recruiting process slow as he recovers from surgery on his ACL and meniscus that took place a couple of weeks ago.

Norcross went 15-0 in 2012 and Autry finished the season with over 1,800 all-purpose yards. He had 13 receiving touchdowns, nine rushing touchdowns, and he returned five punts for touchdowns.
