ORLANDO, Fla. - Jeb Blazevich took all the visits needed before making his college decision and he feels as good today about being a Bulldog as he did on April 23...

Jeb Blazevich had John Lilly (Tight ends) over to his house twice in December and Mark Richt stopped by once.

The four-star tight end continues to develop his relationship with his future coaches.

"Both visits were very relaxed because we know each other so well," said Blazevich. "We just ate some dinner, hung out, and talked. We all know where things stand, so there was not any recruiting going on."

The coaches were a big part of Blazevich's decision to commit to Georgia. He likes the people that will surround him in Athens.

"I really get along with the coaches and the players at Georgia. I went there for my official visit and everything was perfect. It was cool to be around the players, see the area I will be living in during the season, and I feel very comfortable at Georgia."

After the four-star tight end signs with the Dawgs in February, he will be eager to see what he can learn between then and when he enrolls over the summer.

"I cannot wait to get the playbook and start looking at it. I am going to be running, lifting, catching passes, and doing all I can do to prepare myself for Georgia.

"I want to be ready to help the team when it needs me, so I will be working hard."

The Dawgs are known for producing talented tight ends and Lilly has developed some good ones.

Blazevich is excited about having the opportunity to be the next one.

"I will do whatever Georgia wants me to do as a tight end," said Blazevich, "I will flex out or attach to the line. I just want to help the team, become as big of a part of the offense as I can, and win some games."

The 6-foot-4, 225 pound senior out of Charlotte Christian is having fun now at the Under Armour All-America game.

He knew after his junior season that he wanted to be part of that event.

"I never really thought about being an All-American until I saw guys playing in the game last year. I started to think, that could be me, and I now have the great honor to play in the game.

"I have worked my butt off to get here and now I will keep working it off preparing for Georgia."
