Four of Texas' best young prospects react to new Georgia offers
ATLANTA - This past weekend in Atlanta, the True 19 all-star game pitted many of the best sophomore football players in Georgia against the their counterparts from Texas. All of the participants were shuttled over to Athens to visit the University of Georgia on Saturday. Five of the top Texas standouts received offers from Georgia after meeting with the Bulldog coaching staff. We caught up with four of them following the True19 game on Sunday to get their thoughts on the Bulldogs.
"It means a lot. It means I'm getting better and people are noticing. They said they are really excited about my highlight film and wanted to offer. That's my second offer. I don't really know much about Georgia though. The campus was beautiful when we went to visit and the practice facility is really nice." - Marcus Stripling
"I haven't had a lot of communication, but when I got there, they made me feel at home. They surprised me with the offer and I appreciated it. From what I saw yesterday, I loved it. The new indoor facility was great and the coaches too of course. It was a fun time at Georgia and I see myself as an SEC receiver, so I'll highly consider Georgia. I don't have a problem going that far from home. I'll go anywhere I can get the ball. I know enough about Georgia. I know they love the Dawgs, savages, and they just love great players.
"They told us they had been watching us for a little bit and were happy we could make it out there and wanted to let us know before we left that we scholarship offers." - Theo Wease
"It was awesome. We took a visit yesterday and that place could be home. The facility is nice, the coaches are great, and I'm just blessed to have that offer. They told they were excited about us and wanted to offer us and I couldn't even believe it at first. I was not expecting it at all. They told me Coach Kirby [Smart] wanted to speak with me and I couldn't believe it. I couldn't even speak after it happened and Theo couldn't either. I'm just going to keep working and hope that more come." - Arjei Henderson
"I was very excited to receive an offer from Georgia. It's a very prestigious college, a good program, and they are headed in the right direction. I know it's a good SEC school, they have put a lot of people in the NFL, and they have a great tradition. I was very happy to get the offer because I was hoping to get one, so it's a dream come true. I was in the room with Kirby Smart, the offensive coordinator, and the receiver coach. We were just talking and then they offered me. They said they watched my film, loved it, and they said they were happy to offer me. I was smiling. I was really happy." - Jalen 'Boobie' Curry
