In case you missed it, the Georgia Bulldogs were trending up, over the weekend, after landing two 2015 defensive back commits (Shaq Wilson and Deontai Williams), as well as two 2016 commits (QB Jacob Eason and OL Ben Cleveland) at their annual Dawg Night event; but the yearly camp was not only good press for the prospects that were ready to make their allegiances known, but for the ones who are still keeping an open mind about their final destination, as well.
Albert Huggins (Orangeburg, SC) is one of those guys.
Huggins, a 6-3, 280 lb., defensive line prospect, took in the sights and sounds of Dawg Night, with his parents, and all walked away impressed with the atmosphere, the staff, and the program.
“I liked Georgia and it was a great visit,” Huggins told 247Sports.com on Sunday afternoon. “It was a good look and a good visit. I enjoyed myself. I really enjoyed talking with the academic people. It was a good visit for me and a good talk (with the coaches) for me.” (Ryan Bartow, 247Sports)
Despite being from the state of South Carolina, Huggins has referred to Georgia as his “dream school”, so it bodes well that the Bulldogs were able to get him down for a visit and show him everything they have to offer—especially since he’s looking to enroll early.
“I’ve been talking to my parents and I can’t wait too long,” Huggins said. “Or I’ll be too late to be admitted to college because I’m enrolling early. I’m still wide open with everybody and I’m going to allow my official visits to help give me a better idea for my decision.” (Ryan Bartow, 247Sports)
As of right now, Clemson appears to be the favorite: he’s been there the most, is comfortable with the coaching staff, the proximity to home is something his parents like, and there is certainly an opportunity to play early and make an impact with the Tigers.
That said, it isn’t over yet and, if Georgia can keep the heat on, they have a legitimate shot at turning the odds in their favor.
This will definitely be one to watch over the next few months.
