After Rivals250 receiver Tramel Terry of Goose Creek (S.C.) de-committed from Georgia last September, the Bulldogs didn't get discouraged. And they certainly didn't give up.
"They," Terry told Rivals.com on Thursday, "have been on me even harder."
Georgia will have a chance to impress the 6-feet, 190-pound Terry this weekend when he makes an unofficial visit to Athens.

"I've been twice, but the difference with South Carolina and Clemson is that I got to spend the night, spend time with the players and get a feel for college," Terry said. "I'm going to do the same thing this week. I'm trying to get a vibe with the players and build a relationship with them. That's what I'm looking for."
Sometime in the next week or two, Terry will announce a top four. He said Thursday that Georgia would be in that group.
"They're really high," he said. "It's one or two. I've always been a Georgia fan. The only reason I de-committed was to make sure I made the right decision. It's one of the biggest decisions of my life. I had to take a step back. I didn't feel like I committed for the right reasons."
Terry spoke with Georgia coach Mark Richt earlier this week.
"I just talked to him last night," Terry said. "He talked about me coming up there. He's going to be out of town. But he wanted me to let him know how it goes. He said he really wants me."
According to Terry, he already also has visited Alabama, Clemson, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia Tech. He plans to check out Clemson on March 3 and Florida this summer.
Who is recruiting him hardest?
"Georgia, South Carolina and Clemson," Terry said. "And really Florida. They're big on me now. I think I'm one of their main priorities because they need receivers."
Terry would like to end the process sooner rather than later.
"My thinking is, I plan on graduating early," Terry said. "I'm trying to figure out where I want to go that way I can recruit for them."
In 2011, Terry had 850 yards and 10 touchdowns receiving. He also rushed for 868 yards and 10 more scores.
