Video: Richard Samuel talks UGA

Rivals.com Junior All-American Richard Samuel committed to the Georgia back in January. Samuel decided early in the process after picking up offers from the likes of Florida, Tennessee, Notre Dame, and others that he was ready to be a Bulldog. UGASports.com visited with Samuel recently and he talks with us about why he committed early, what position he may play, his early enrollment, and more inside.

Samuel is one of the top prospects in Georgia right now. He stars at running back and linebacker for Head Coach Rick Casko at Cass High School in Cartersville (Ga.).

Georgia was one of the many schools to extend a scholarship offer to Samuel early in the process and it paid off for the Dawgs as Samuel gave Coach Richt and the University of Georgia his verbal commitment in January.

This 6-foot-2, 211-pound athlete chose Georgia over Clemson, Florida, Notre Dame, Tennessee, and others. He committed early, but he is very solid to the Bulldogs.

We traveled over to Cass recently to visit with Samuel and he sat down for this exclusive video interview. He talks with us about his early commitment, why he chose Georgia, if he plans to enroll early or not, what Georgia has told him about position, what he feels he does best on the field, and more.

See what this future Bulldog has to say right here.


If you were not able to watch the interview right now, then here are some of the quotes from Samuel.

"I picked Georgia because of the atmosphere and it is close to home."

"My mom played a big role. When we went down there to visit the school, she liked how the coaches treated her and she liked the way they answered her questions."

"She wanted to know who would be there to help me with class, if she would be able to stay in communication with me, and if it was a good or bad thing to commit early."

"I think Coach Richt is a nice guy. When he talks he has a positive vibe."
