Jeb Blazevich, 6'5 240lb Tight End Prospect from Charlotte, North Carolina, committed to the Georgia Bulldogs on April 23rd over the Clemson Tigers and Ole Miss Rebels. This past weekend, LHB had the opportunity to talk with Jeb about his decision. Here is what he had to say about his decision:
- What stuck out in Athens that made you choose the Bulldogs?
“Primarily I just felt God was calling me to be at Georgia. I really liked the people there and loved the campus for sure."
- What school came runner-up in your process and what interest you about that school?
"Either Clemson or Ole Miss came in second. They both have great staffs and utilize their tight ends very well in their offenses."
- At what point did you know that UGA was where you wanted to be?
“Last week (week before I committed) I was 100% sure that I wanted to be a Georgia Bulldog."
- What are your feelings about playing with Milan Richard if he chooses to be a Bulldog?
“I love Milan and it would be great to have him as a teammate if the Bulldog staff need him to and he wants to come to UGA."
- What recruits have you became close with and any particular ones that you are trying to get to Athens with you?
"I have met Deshaun Watson a couple of times and I have become close with Demarre Kitt, Christian Miller, Milan Richard, and a few others that I know I am missing. I am really close with Elijah Hood. I did not meet him through football or visits though. His girlfriend and her twin are my good friends so we met that way a while back. I have not been able to talk with no other recruits yet but I am going to try and help recruits figure out what they want and if that is UGA then great, if not I will wish them the best of luck too."
- When do you plan on visiting UGA again? Anything else you would like to say to the Bulldog Nation?
"I am not sure exactly when I will get back to Athens but I am excited to do so. I just want to let everyone apart of the Bulldog Nation know that I'm ready to work and learn and help the team anyway I can."
I would like to thank Jeb for taking time out of his day to talk with us. Congratulations to him on his commitment to Georgia and best of luck to Mr. Blazevich during his Senior season. If you would like to follow this young man you can do so at the following twitter handle. GO DAWGS!!!
