Commings eager to get to Athens

ATHENS – The time is coming near, and one of Georgia's commits can't wait to sign his name on the dotted line.

"This is all exciting to me," said Sanders Commings. "I am ready to graduate and get up there and start playing."

Commings, a safety from Augusta, visited Athens this weekend on his official visit to the school. He joined DeAngelo Tyson, A.J. Green, Cornelius Washington and A.J. Harmon on the visit.

"I have already seen most of the things they showed us," he said. "I had a lot of fun with the guys. We all hung out together, and I think it really went well. I talk with A.J. (Harmon) a lot. I was glad to see him pick Georgia because I don't want to play against him. Playing against him was fun. I didn't have to go up against him one-on-one. When I am not in the game I was watching him dominate."

Sanders admitted it was the first time he's spent with those committed players not from his area. He said he was glad to get to know the out-of-state Green and Statesboro's Tyson.

Commings said he looked forward most to "playing in front of the Sanford Stadium crowd." On hand for more than a few contests this fall, the senior got a good taste of what playing between the hedges will be like. But with that move between the famed hedges comes responsibility.

"Coach Richt talked about how excited he was to have me committed," Commings said. "He talked about the jump from high school to college and the responsibility that goes along with it. After I sign they are going to send me a workout book for me to write down my goals."

Sanders said he will be back in Athens before enrolling this summer.

"I am sure when I will get back up there for sure, but I think I will get to some spring practices," he said. "I know I will get to go to the G-Day game."
