Greenlee talks about the Swamp

Offensive lineman Antwane Greenlee from Hardaway High School in Columbus (Ga.), just returned from Gainesville after taking an official visit to Florida last weekend. Greenlee talked to Scout.com about his trip and his commitment status with the Dawgs.

Offensive lineman Antwane Greenlee took an official visit last weekend to Florida for the South Carolina game. Greenlee had a good time in Gainesville.

"Aw, man! The visit went pretty good," said Greenlee. "I enjoyed it down there in Florida. It was a packed house. The game was real real crowded. It came down to the wire. The Gamecocks played a great game, but Florida was able to hold on for the win."

"I enjoyed the whole atmosphere. I got to see Tim Tebow live and in color. He's a good quarterback. They're expecting a lot from him in the future. So I really enjoyed the visit overall."

How solid is his commitment to Georgia?

"Right now, I'm still solid with Georgia, 100 percent," Greenlee said. "I'm making plans to take all five of my official visits with Florida being one of them. Right now, I think I'm just gonna go to these colleges as a Georgia prospect, but as a recruit, I'm 100 percent solid with Georgia."

As for his final four officials, Greenlee is eyeing three other SEC schools.

"I know 100 percent my next two will be Georgia and Tennessee," he said. "I'm making plans on those. I've already got Georgia planned. I'm thinking about taking one to Auburn and possibly Florida State."

So far, Greenlee is the forth offensive lineman to commit to the Bulldogs in the class of 2007.

"I'm thinking it's going to be a great class," said the four-star prospect. "Georgia is putting together a real fine recruiting class. Clint Boling, Trinton Sturdivant, Tanner Strickland and they've got a quarterback from Missouri. I mean Georgia's really on their recruiting game this year and I think we'll have an excellent class."

The offensive line will be a position of concern for Georgia due to the lack of depth next season. Seniors Ken Shackleford, Nick Jones, Daniel Inman and Michael Turner will have to be replaced. The Dawgs' depth chart played a big role in Greenlee's decision.

"Aw, man! That weighed very heavily on my decision," he said. "I think that's why I switched my commitment from Florida State to Georgia. I probably could go in and play earlier. Not to mention the coaching staff, they made me feel like they wanted me to play for them."

"You know, with Georgia's offensive line situation, I believe it will give me a better opportunity to go in and play. I'm ready to learn all the plays and do whatever I got to do to play early. I know it's going to be a challenge to learn all of their plays, but I'm ready for it."

Before taking his next official, Greenlee plans to head down to Athens on November 25th for an unofficial and the Georgia Tech-Georgia game. He will take his second official on December 9th at Georgia.
