True words... true words. Not too worried about him going to learn below his potential would allow. Come to Carolina and go from a 2 star recruit to an NFL high-rounder. I mean, that's what I'd do.

Huggins just wrapped up his Georgia visit. Per their Rivals site he called Georgia his "dream offer" but still plans to visit Auburn, FSU and Florida.

He said he liked Georgia's message because "there was no message". They just told him they think he would fit well there and would for for him to be a Dawg.....he said "They didn't really pressure me or tell me that I needed to go ahead and make my decision, you know?" (referring to Clem?). Said Georgia's dorms are best he's seen.

He also mentioned he has a good relationship with Ward and Adams but will not take an OV to SC because he is so familiar. He sounds anything but a Clem lock.

It would seem like we don't have much of a chance if he doesn't take an OV here.

I don't think he said he wouldn't take an OV. I believe he said he wasn't coming to camp.

Saw a post/statement from Ryan Bartow that basically said just that. Huggins was a big UGA fan growing up but his family & coaches of influence prefer Clemson. Explains a lot of what goes on at OW.

DL Albert Huggins of Orangeburg-Wilkinson will, visit Georgia Saturday. for his first ever trip to Athens and he plans to use it as an opportunity to take a close look at the Bulldogs.
“I just want to sit down with coach (Mark) Richt and get to know the positives and the negatives of the program,” Huggins said. “I am keeping an open mind towards all schools so I just want to analyze them.”
Huggins remains in contact with Clemson and USC coaches. He has visited Clemson this summer but has not gotten back to USC.
“Right now I am just talking to the Carolina coaches and building a better relationship,” he said. “Coach (Deke) Adams wants me to come up and sit down with him to look at film. I just haven’t had the chance yet but hopefully I can do that.”
Florida is another possible destination for Huggins this summer though time is running short. Huggins mentioned that school begins in a month and that makes it difficult to get down to Gainesville in time. No trip has been scheduled to Florida yet.
Huggins did say he has shaved his list a little but does not have an official list. “I think I’ve probably trimmed my list a little in my mind but I don’t have any favorites or anything like that,” he said. “I don’t know when I’ll do that.”
He did say Clemson and USC are still very much in the mix for his services.

No pressure from the Dawgs = they have others higher on the boards. Already has a commit from Justin Young. Big names still out there, Trent Thompson, Shy Tuttle, Daron Payne, etc.

Not remotely!

Huggins and his camp have never been dishonest. Nor, does it appear that any coach is pushing him away from the state. PLUS, Poona's coach was pushing him away from Clemp too.

Georgia is the only other place that can flip this kid from Clemson and there's just a slight chance of that happening. He's not coming here.

In state or out of state, they both steer their SC player away from USC. Is it exactly the same situation? No. But to say it is NOTHING like it is preposterous.

I learned, after the fact, exactly what went down in the Poona Ford situation but I have no interest in running to a message board & betraying the confidence that person showed in me & a small group of other donors (of which I'm a small fish) in a private conversation. People can call that what they choose. Trust this, it wasn't good at all.

I don't know what the staff at OW does other than the fact that it's very close & we virtually never land a player from there (yes there have been a few exceptions in the past) & what Bartow posted. That will be a question I ask next time I get the opportunity & the venue is appropriate. Feel fairly confident we're not playing on a level field there, but I could also be wrong.

Very good point. I just saw a post from Georgia's Rival Insider about Thompson, his leaders are: Georgia, Auburn, Alabama, Clemson and Southern Cal - in that order.

Georgia doesn't need Huggins with fish like that still in the water.

I know some private information, but can't tell you!! Come on....that has been said by 10 different people on here trying to act like they are "in the know." If you want to share, then share, but don't try to act important by making up stories.

Guy, are you around this staff in informal settings? Well I am on occassion & I'm not making up squat. I know exactly what happened there because one of the parties directly involved told me what happened.

You sit behind that computer board & keep calling people a liar kid. Been around too long to play that game, keyboard warrior. Been going to games & supporting the program for longer than you've likely been on this earth. Marvin Bass was coaching when I first started attending. Ever heard of a knot-hole ticket? Didn't think so.

Any more gibberish you want to throw out?

I've heard a story too but have been asked not to share. I don't know if the stories we've heard are the same, however, and there's no way to know.
