Florida WR liked what he saw at UGA

The son of a former Major League Baseball star Fred McGriff camped at Georgia last week and he liked what he saw. Erick McGriff got a lot of one on one attention from multiple coaches, he worked out at a new position, and a lot about the visit impressed him in Athens.

"Georgia is definitely a top rate school," said McGriff after he completes Georgia's three day camp.

"It was my first time to Georgia and I loved everything about it. They had great facilities, I liked their coaches, and I liked everything they had to offer."

The 6-foot-4, 190-pound receiver out of Tampa (FL) Jesuit stepped out of his comfort zone for the first time in Athens, but that move may not have been a bad one.

"Georgia put me at safety some too, so I was not at receiver the whole time. They wanted to see me at defensive back also. It was my first time ever playing defense, but it really opened my eyes."

"It was a new experience, but I had some interceptions, and the coaches said I did really well there. I am going to see if I can play some defense this year in high school now. That could help me get more offers."

As of now, offers are in from Cincinnati, Kansas, Arkansas, and Troy. He is getting a lot of attention from schools like Auburn, Florida State, Wake Forest, and Georgia.

The Bulldogs did not offer him after the camp, but they did let him know that they are interested.
