Lowndes High defensive back Greg Reid said he's looking forward to this weekend's official visit to Georgia so much that he's bringing some friends.
"I am hoping to have a good time, hang out, and hopefully find a place like home," Reid said in a telephone interview with UGASports..
Named a 5-star prospect in the final Rivals.com rankings, Reid has brought an entourage with him. He feels they will help him have an even better time.
"I brought some friends to hang out this weekend," Reid said. "My boys Washaun Ealey, Dexter Moody, and my best friend Michael Gilliard are coming with me. They know this place, so it is already like home to them."
Reid met with coaches from Georgia last night, and he was able to take more from the visit than he usually gets over the phone.
"The visit went real well, Coach (Mike) Bobo, Coach (Willie) Martinez, and Coach (Mark) Richt were able to talk to me longer," Reid said. "It was great to really get to know them better."
While he will no doubt be told of his chance to shine at Georgia while on his visit, he admits he will probably not hear anything new.
"I already know the situation and the players there," he said. "The coaches let me know there is an opportunity for me and it is up to me to take it."
The No. 1 player in the state has been under a constant barrage from college coaches, students, and the media since he made his decision to reopen his recruitment a month ago. Now, with only four days until he makes his decision, he is ready for things to calm down.
"I am blessed to even be in this position, but if feels good to know I am getting closer," he said. "There will be another wave of attention next week, but after that it should settle down."
The 5-foot-9, 175-pound prospect plans to announce his decision Tuesday night at a local steakhouse in Valdosta.
