Gamecocks Need DEs In 2006

He wants to go to a school with good academics and a good football program ...

Ricky Sapp, a highly–recruited Defensive End prospect from Bamberg, South Carolina, spent his Junior Day visiting the Bulldogs of Athens. What were Sapp's impressions of the school?

"It only took us 2 ½ hours to get there, said Sapp." "I thought it would be a longer drive than that. I talked to Coach Richt and basically the whole coaching staff. The school has good academics, and I really like the student athletic center. I like the school a lot."

After visiting Athens can Sapp see himself suiting up for Georgia in the '06 season?

"Right now I'm not sure where I want to play. Schools like Georgia, Florida, N.C. State, Duke, Tennessee, Penn State, Nebraska, and LSU have already offered. I'm flattered and loving it. I just want to keep all my options open."

With plenty of offers on the table, what will be some factors in Sapp's final decision?

"I want to go to a school with good academics and a good football program. It doesn't matter if it's close or a far off place. I'm just going to be patient and see which school has the most to offer for me."
