Curran: Trip was sweet

Rennie Curran

ATHENS – College football is so close for Rennie Curran that he can almost smell it.

He and the rest of the commitments that visited Georgia this weekend got used to their soon-to-be surroundings a little bit more this weekend.

"It was sweet," Curran said. "We got there and went straight to the banquet."

Georgia jumped on Curran early on in the recruiting process. The Brookwood linebacker was being targeted by Auburn, and the Tigers may have actually been ahead of the Bulldogs early on.

But when Georgia offered the Bronco pulled the trigger. From that spring day forward he's been excited to be a Bulldog.

"We went on a tour on Saturday, and we talked to the academic people" Curran said.

He was hosted this weekend by Akeem Hebron

"We talked and hung out a lot," said Curran of the pair of linebackers.

But its not that Curran needed Hebron's help finding his way around Athens. Curran estimates that he's visited the Classic City at least ten times since committing to Georgia. But none of them have been quite like this trip, he said.

"It was cool," said of the stadium experience, which he said was his favorite part of the short drive up. "It sent chills down my spine thinking about suiting up and playing out there. Every time I am up there it feels like home, but even more this time. I got to talk to a lot of the players at Coach Richt home and that was really cool."

As far as the top uncommitted player who visited Athens this weekend, Curran said he spent some time with offensive lineman Chris Little.

"He's good friends with Greenlee, and I don't think there is a guy that doesn't like Coach Richt," said Curran of Georgia's chances of getting Little. "He told me that he didn't want to go to far from home, but the decision is up to him."

Curran also said he would be in the North-South All Star Game in Colubus the day before the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
