McRae liked what he saw at Georgia

It is hard to find a natural center prospect in high school football, but you can find one in middle Georgia at Dublin High School. Nick McRae lines up at center and he has the body and skills to play that position on the next level. The University of Georgia has interest in McRae and they invited him to Junior Day this weekend.

"I liked Georgia a lot," said McRae. "The visit went real well and everything was real nice up there."

This was McRae's first visit to Athens and he said a number of things stood out to him.

"I liked the stadium a lot. It was real big and real nice. The campus was great too. The tour was great and it showed us a lot about Georgia. They had great academics and that really impressed me. I liked the coaches there too. I spent some time with them and they showed a lot of interest in me."

This 6-foot-3, 285-pound lineman spent some time with two of the Georgia coaches.

"Coach Stacy Searels introduced himself to me and told me who he was and stuff like that first," McRae said. "We didn't really talk about football or anything, but it was just more of us getting to know each other."

"I also talked to Coach Willie Martinez. He is my recruiting coach and he was a real cool guy. He just talked to me about academics and just staying in shape this spring."

McRae says that not too much football talk took place, but the Dawgs invited him back to talk more about that.
