Dwayne Allen is committed to Georgia, he said today, clearing up months of "no comment" about the situation.

"I think there were some rumors of me being de-committing and everything involved with my commitment to Georgia but they still treated me right," he said. "I am committed to Georgia."

Allen said there was a communication problem between him and Athens, but that was resolved this weekend.

"What it was before was a communication issue between me and the coaches," Allen admitted. "I just wasn't happy with it. It didn't feel needed or wanted, or something like that. But they reassured me that they do want me at Georgia."

Allen said talking with Georiga's head coach made a big difference.

"Just talking with Coach Richt – after visiting and talking and sitting down with him I feel a lot better than I did."

Now Allen will focus on his high school season. He still plans on visiting North Carolina and East Carolina, however, but he said he will wait until after his senior season to deal with recruiting.

"I have put all of recruiting aside," said the tight end. "I am putting recruiting aside until after my senior football season. I want play great football this year."

As for his trip to Georgia, Allen said he liked what he saw.

"It was great. The weather was great and the fans came out. There were a lot of big recruits there – guys like A.J. Greene and Cornelious Washington. It was a great time even thought we lost," he said.

Allen went on to say that the upset loss is not something that he takes into consideration.

"What matters is what Georgia has been doing over time, like throwing the ball to the tight end," he said.

Allen said his official visit to Athens will be the Auburn game, and that he hopes to get back before then.
