About two weeks ago, Atlanta North Springs tight end Coleman Watson said that Georgia was almost fading off his list. Then something drastic changed on Saturday.
He received an offer from the Dawgs. Well, he officially received it from the head Dawg himself, Mark Richt.
"I was invited to the game this weekend against Clemson, and I called up coach (Rodney) Garner to let him know that I was coming by a little early," Watson, who is ranked as the No. 48 player in Georgia, said.
"He told me to get there as fast as I could since he was going to offer me a scholarship. My jaw just dropped to the floor. I think we sped up there and got there really fast.
"I then went to talk to coach Richt and he told me that they were offering me a scholarship. I was so tempted to take it right away."
But Watson, who is 6-foot-6 and 250 pounds, told the Georgia coaches that he'd like to at least take some official visits before making any decision.
"Georgia is far and away my No. 1 team," Watson said. "They're No. 1 on my list without a doubt. But I want to take all five of my visits and weigh my options."
Watson said he's seriously looking at Florida, Alabama, Wake Forest, North Carolina, South Carolina and Notre Dame. Along with UGA, he has offers from Wake, South Carolina and Notre Dame.
In North Springs' first game of the season, Watson did most of his damage on defense.
"I played really well," he said. "I had four tackles for a loss, two solo tackles and caused one fumble. We won - 17-16 against Cedar Grove and it was a hard-fought win."
