Murray visits UGA again, could decide soon

Rivals100 quarterback Aaron Murray visited the University of Georgia for the second time in about a month for G-Day. The number 43 player in the country watched the spring game after a visit out west.

"It was a crazy last couple of days," said Murray after he visited UCLA late last week before flying into Charlotte (N.C.), and then driving down to Athens for Georgia's spring game.

"I flew out to UCLA on Wednesday and watched practice. Then I saw the campus and all that on Thursday. We flew in Charlotte Friday afternoon, and then got down to Athens late Friday night."

"After the Georgia visit, we drove 10 hours back home and got in around 3 in the morning. It was a long weekend and I am glad I am on spring break, so I can rest."

The visits were worth it though. He got to see the Bruins on the West Coast, and then he headed back to Athens for his second visit within the last five weeks.

The Tampa QB had seen everything Georgia had to offer as a school, so what was he back in Athens for on G-Day?

"The biggest thing is, I want to see the schools I like as much as possible," he explained. "I want to get to know the coaches as good as I can and I wanted to see Georgia's offense in a game situation."

He got to see the Dawgs led by talented quarterback Matthew Stafford and he was not disappointed.

"I like the offense they showed a lot. They spread it out, they used 3 and 4 receiver sets, and I enjoyed watching them. I got to see the offense in motion, and I got to see different quarterbacks in action. I saw a lot and I think it is something I could play in."

After watching the spring game, the highly touted junior out of the Sunshine State spent some time with Mike Bobo. Coach Bobo has been the coach recruiting Murray for the Dawgs from day one and they have a nice relationship.

"We walked back to the athletic complex after the game, and we had a nice one on one conversation. It was just us two, so that was nice."
