Turene Talks USC and Georgia

Could Kent Turene end up playing college football in Athens? Georgia made a good impression on the USC commitment and he talks about his visit here.

"I liked it at Georgia a lot. I had a good feeling all weekend, I got to see what Georgia was like, and I liked the environment, the staff, the people, and the school," said Kent Turene. Georgia is still on Turene's mind even thought he remains committed to the USC Trojans and the Dawgs made a good impression this weekend.

"I really have a good connection with the Georgia coaches and I got to hang out with Alec Ogletree, T.J. Stripling, Jarvis Jones, and a lot of their players too. I hit it off with them too and Georgia is still a schools I am considering."

Other than USC and Georgia, the 6-foot-2, 235 pound linebacker out of Ft. Lauderdale (GA) Boyd Anderson listed Nebraska, Tennessee, and Texas Tech as schools still under consideration. He expects coaches from each school to stop in and see him this week before he makes his final decision.

"I am still planning to make everything official on Signing Day," he said. "I am still a USC commitment, but I am looking at every school the same way. I am still in the evaluation process and I still have to make my final decision."

He knows a number of programs want him to end up on their campus later this fall and Georgia showed him they are one of them during his visit to Athens.

"I felt a lot of love from Georgia. The entire staff was around me all weekend and I know they want me there. Every coach told me they wanted me and that they have a need for a linebacker with my ability. Coach [Mark] Richt and all the other coaches made that very easy to see."
