UGA makes big first impression on Wells

A defensive end out of Gainesville (Ga.) is starting to get more and more recognition in recent weeks. Keith Wells has picked up three offers in the last ten days and more are likely to be on their way. Wells visited Georgia for Junior Day this weekend and he was very impressed. He talks about his visit, what stood out to him, where UGA is on his list, and more inside.

"The visit to Georgia went real good," said Wells. "I had a chance to talk to some coaches and they really knew a lot about me. They seem to know everything about me before I even opened my mouth and that was exciting."

"I got to tour the football building and they have a lot of tradition at Georgia. The whole program is built on tradition there. I like that a lot about Georgia. I got a chance to check out the campus and watch them practice too."

The Georgia campus was something that really stood out to Wells during his visit.

"I didn't realize it was so big," he said. "I had been there one time before for a 7-on-7 camp last summer, but I didn't think the campus was like that. It is a very nice campus and very spread out. I like that."

Tradition is big for this in-state defensive end and he liked what he learned about Georgia's during Junior Day.

"The football team is a legacy at Georgia and that is awesome," he said. "They expect to win and they have to win there. It is based on a lot of winning tradition and that is real impressive."

The coaching staff made an impression on this 6-foot-5, 230-pound rush end too and one coach in particular stood out to him.

"The staff at Georgia says a lot of the same thing in different ways. They have a lot of good things to say to me and they seem to have a lot of interest in me."

"I spent a lot of time with defensive end's coach Jon Fabris. He really showed me a lot of attention and I liked that. I watched him out there coaching and I really, really like the way he coaches. I like how he will call you out at any time no matter who you are. If you make a mistake, then he is going to tell you."
