What is Georgia getting in David Andrews? South Recruiting Analyst Chad Simmons breaks down the new…
A Bulldog from Birth
"I have always wanted to be a Georgia Bulldog and I am one now," said David Andrews. "I have committed to the University of Georgia." This is just days after the Bulldogs offered Andrews a scholarship. Andrews had been waiting patiently for that first offer to come and it happened last Wednesday. Michigan offered hi, then Georgia followed on Thursday before Duke pulled the trigger on Friday. It was three offers in three days and while he respected each one, he knew the minute he received the offer from the Dawgs that he wanted to wear red and black inside Sanford Stadium. "When I was talking to Coach [Stacy] Searels on Thursday, he offered me and I asked myself if this was really happening. I almost didn't believe it at first and I just couldn't believe it." "Georgia is where I always wanted to go, so there was not much to think about when I got the offer. When I was asked by Coach Searels if I was ready to play for the University of Georgia, I told him, yes sir. There was a little pause in there because I still couldn't believe it, but there was nothing for me to think about because I knew that is where I wanted to go. I told him I wanted to play for the University of Georgia and that I wanted to play for him." Andrews is an explosive center. There were many reasons why the top interior offensive lineman in Georgia wants to play between the hedges. He has grown up a fan of the Dawgs and his grandfather even told him as soon as he was big that he was going to be a fullback at Georgia one day. He got half of it right because he will going to be suiting it up in Athens, but playing center instead of fullback. "I have grown up a Georgia fan my whole life, so I am very familiar with Georgia, I have been going to games there since I was little, and Athens it like a second home to me," said the junior out of Norcross (GA) Wesleyan. "Georgia has always been my dream school, so I look at the offer and the chance to go there as a blessing from God. He has open doors for me and this one is a dream of mine coming true." The 6-foot-2, 281 pound center committed to Georgia when riding in the car with his parents and his parents were about as involved in the conversation as Andrews was himself. There was a little swerving, but they got out of it safely. "I had already talked to my parents and even though we were not sure the offer was coming, they knew where I wanted to go, and they were behind me. When I got the offer, my mom and dad kept looking back at me and my dad ended up pulling over to calm back down. They could tell by my facial expressions throughout the conversation that I got the offer and after I committed, they talked to Coach Searels as well. It was a big moment for all of us." Now Andrews is set on being a Georgia Bulldog and playing for Mark Richt. Even though Andrews has yet to talk to the Georgia head coach about his decision, both parties know everything is official. "My commitment to Georgia is 100 percent solid and Coach Searels is very excited about my commitment as well," Andrews stated. "My only official visit with be to Georgia, I will not be taking any other unofficial visits, and I will be spending a lot of time in Athens now." "Georgia is the place that I want to play, it is a dream coming true for me, and there is nothing that can keep me away from the University of Georgia now." Andrews plans to attend Georgia's Junior Day this weekend and he will tell Coach Richt face to face about his decision that he has already shared with his future offensive line coach.
