UGA trip kicks off Conyers visits

Miami (Fla.) Braddock offensive tackle Robert Conyers visited the University of Georgia on Friday in hopes of landing an offer while competing at Dawg Night. While he departed without an offer, Conyers felt he made a good impression on Mark Richt and his staff despite limited opportunities.
"Overall, it was alright," Conyers said. "They told me I did a real good job on my pass drills and all of my line drills. It was just when it came to the 1-on-1s I didn't get that much of an opportunity to show them much because I didn't get that many opportunities, that many reps."
Away from the camp, the South Florida prospect also had an opportunity to check out the football facilities.
"It was pretty good," Conyers said. "I got a chance to look around, see the weight room and the football facilities. It was really nice there. They have a lot of nice equipment and the indoor track they have next to the weight room is pretty nice. They have a really night weight room. I also like all the practice fields."
The 6-foot-5, 277-pound lineman got some feedback from offensive line coach Will Friend and others on the staff about what his future holds with regards to the possibility of an eventual offer from the Bulldogs.
"I also had a chance to meet with their coaches," Conyers said. "They told me they are going to keep watching me and watching film on me."
While the Georgia staff will meet early next week to further discuss Dawg Night, Conyers believes an offer won't come until he is further evaluated during his senior season.
"I think it is going to play into my senior season," Conyers said.
Conyers currently holds offers from Cincinnati, Duke, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Illinois, Kentucky, Marshall, Memphis, Michigan State, Purdue, South Florida, UCF, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, West Virginia, Western Kentucky, and Western Michigan.
Next up for the talented lineman is a visit to Vanderbilt on Saturday and LSU on Monday.
