Medder: Dont use word committed

Imagine a 6-foot-6, 315-pound offensive lineman in a little paddleboat. Imagine a 6-6, 315-pound offensive lineman tearing up the clubs. Imagine a 6-6, 315-pound offensive lineman having a great time in Gainesville, Fla. And imagine 6-6, 315-pound offensive lineman de-committed from UGA.
That’s the reality for Groveland (Fla.) South Lake offensive lineman Carlton Medder, who visited Florida this weekend despite a commitment to UGA.
“It was a lot better than I thought it would be,” Medder said. “At first I thought it was going to be a lot like the games where I didn’t get to talk to the players and hang out with them.
“I was wrong. I had a great time. We went out to the clubs on Saturday night, and during the day we went on paddleboats out on the lake. It was a blast.”
Medder said he now has a delimma on his hands. He really loved UGA and he now really loves UF. So what should he do.
“I don’t think you should list me as committed anymore,” he said. “Committed is a strong word. I don’t know if I would use that word now. I need to sit down and talk to my mom and think about some things.
“I don’t think I can go wrong at either school, but it’s best to say that I’m not committed.”
And with a Tennessee visit coming next weekend things could get really interesting for the nation’s No. 41 offensive tackle.
