Memphis adds Peach State OL

Locust Grove (Ga) - Luella High offensive lineman Robbie Hardie has decided to commit to Memphis. The 6-foot-4, 283-pounder had another offer from Tulane and was receiving high interest from UAB, Southern Miss, Middle Tennessee and East Carolina.

Memphis added some help along the offensive line recently from the Peach State in Luella offensive tackle Robbie Hardie.

GAVSV.com spoke with Hardie about his decision.

"We had been looking at a couple of different schools," said Hardie. "Memphis was the first one to offer back in May. We took an unofficial visit up there to watch them play and I really enjoyed it. I really liked the campus. It was a nice campus and it had a real nice stadium."

"Me and my Dad were talking about it a couple of days ago. We talked about different schools. I said that I really liked Memphis and all that it had to offer. It had the major that I wanted. I just really decided that I wanted to commit to them then. I really liked the coaching staff. I just loved the atmosphere up there. I really liked the school altogether."

Hardie was recruited by Memphis running backs coach Tommie Robinson. He plans to take an official visit to memphis in January.

He was chosen as a preseason Clayton/Henry Super 11 player by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution for 2006. Hardie has started every game (37) in Luella High's four year existence.
