Rivals100 defensive tackle Jared Odrick out of Lebanon, Pa. took his fourth official visit this weekend to Georgia. What did the 6-foot-5, 303-pounder think of the school and the Bulldogs close loss to Auburn?
"It was a great visit. I really liked that I fit in with the players and coaches there," he said. "I got up there Friday afternoon and went to a country club and hung out with other recruits. Then on Saturday I ate breakfast, went to academic meetings, toured the campus, went to the game and then hung out afterwards with the players.
"Today, I just met with the coaches and that was about it. I really enjoyed talking to coach Garner and Richt. Coach Garner is a very truthful guy and he told that he thinks I have the potential to be an All-American on their line, but it's up to me how much playing time I'll get. As for coach Richt, he is a very personable guy for a head coach and definitely someone I felt comfortable with."
Besides enjoying time with the coaches, Odrick had fun with the players too.
"I was hosted on the visit by Kade Weston and we got along good last time and it was better this time," he said. "He mostly talked to me about his workouts there and didn't tell me anything I didn't expect."
What did the four-star prospect think of the Bulldogs tough loss?
"The game was really good and the atmosphere there was even better than I thought it would be," he said. "They are a whole lot louder and have very loyal fans. It was great. I noticed that Georgia had trouble stopping the run, but they still gave a really good effort and never stopped fighting."
Odrick rated his visit to Athens a nine.
"It was a very good trip, but I'd only give it a ten if I was committing there," he said. "This visit compared up there with the rest of them and was good."
Next week, the No. 3 defensive tackle in the country takes his final visit to Virginia.
"There nothing I'm looking for specifically," he said. "I'm just looking to have a good time and see if I get that feeling that this is the school for me."
Odrick was planning to decide at the Army All-American Bowl, but is thinking he may move it up to sometime before the end of the year.
