JC defensive end will take official visit to UGA this weekend 

By Michael Carvell

Quincy Vasser, the junior college defensive end who just about came out of nowhere to commit to UGA last April, will take an official visit with the Bulldogs this weekend.

The 6-foot-4, 240-pounder from Navarro junior college will arrive at UGA on Friday afternoon before “Dawg Night” – the summer camp that is the biggest recruiting event of the year for the Bulldogs.

This will be Vasser’s first-ever trip to the state of Georgia. He committed to UGA over Maryland without ever seeing the campus, and within a week after getting an offer from new Bulldogs linebacker coach Kevin Sherrer.

Vasser also committed to UGA without ever talking to Mark Richt, which went against Richt’s normal procedures. Perhaps a new and more aggressive recruiting approach by UGA? Or maybe Richt giving a little more leeway to his assistants after the major overhaul to his staff?

Whatever the case, Vasser did finally speak to Richt during the spring, and he has been communicating with Sherrer on a weekly basis since his commitment.

“(Richt) said he was excited to get me there,” Vasser told the AJC on Tuesday night. “He was glad I decided to be a Bulldog, and all that kind of stuff.”

The original plan was for Vasser to take an unofficial visit to UGA last month, and then return at another time for his official.

“I was going to unofficial last month, but money was tight,” Vasser said. “My mom wasn’t trying to let me do that. So basically I decided to take my official this Friday because during the season, my bye week will be when UGA is playing away.”

Without ever seeing UGA before, what are his expectations for the visit? “I have big expectations,” he said. “First of all, it’s an SEC school. I don’t know … You don’t want to expect too much so you’re not disappointed. I just know I’m going to have some fun, and have a good time with some good people.”

Vasser said he’s still hearing from other schools, including FSU, Rutgers, West Virginia and USC. “As of right now, this is my only visit. I might take a visit to the University of Texas. I’m not really interested in them, but it would be the chance to see another college.”

Vasser is one of UGA’s 14 commits for 2015. Vasser said he’s taking summer classes and plans to enroll in classes with the Bulldogs in January.

So last year UGA suspends 1/2 of their secondary for their opener at Clemson and lose a close one in which those guys probably would have made the difference.


What will Gus do?  We know what he will do and it will solidify AU as a 2nd rate school.

You will need to bookmark this guy because if Pruitt isn't that sold on him then the player will get the drift as the season move along. It happens at most all schools.

Dallas warmack ain't going to Georgia they blew that when they told chance he was a half inch to short to be dawg material and if I am lieing I am dying. Dallas is probably not tall enough either. They got a protocol they follow and they only deviate from it if the kid is very special. Turns out chance warmack was very special. Probably the best guard to play college football in a while considering it had been forty yrs since a guard was taken in the top ten in the NFL draft. I have known Dallas since he was a little kid and chance when he was a young teenager they cone from great great parents both of those young men are great guys. I still shake my head thinking about the time we took chance to meet the uga coaches and they were like this is who y'all been bragging about well now they know.

Man, the trolls have really been hitting the houka.  I had re read their posts to see if I could make any sense out of them and I don't think that is possible.  At least for a sane human being.  Drop the pipe and get help immediately!

Mr. Vassar, pay no attention to the trolls. The ajc blogs are like Three Billy Goat's Gruff. Hang tough, the grass really is greener, the girls really are prettier and opportunity abounds in Athens. The trolls just don't want you to get there. Good luck and welcome aboard young man. GO DAWGS!

The same holds true for Country Mike Bobo and his trusty sidekick, Festus Friend. Project either one of them "Dotting The I", and suddenly you'd be reading:


"Dawgs receive commitments from Chuma Egoda, Mike Horton, Pat Allen. and Dallas Warmack."

Hey Dawg fans,


You know the saying that there would be no more wars if the Generals had to lead the first charge?


Well the same thing holds true for "General" Mark Richt


Let Richt have to line up at tailback vs.Clemson behind that offensive line he, Booboo, and Friend are putting out there and suddenly he'd be saying:


"You know, Quayvon Hicks is really more suited to fullback, and we really like the way Xzavier Ward has progressed at right tackle, and Mark Beard has really come on at left tackle, and you know I talked to John Atkins' high school coach over there at Thomson and we agree, Atkins will be an All-SEC right guard.


That's what you'd hear from Richt.


As long as he's out of harm's way, he's just fine letting Gurley take the punishment. He's got no problem with that.

So has he been counted as a commit for the upcoming class? This article, title, and all is somewhat confusing.

@Red-Dog  "Boom"?...........All I remember is seeing Gus Malzahn fist to palm yelling "Boom"! every time Auburn scored last year......what's with the "Boom" thing?........Red Dog you seem to have a habit of doing things other men do because you think those men are cool. I guess. Like Malzahn and "Boom" and then my name RED DOG which you use as Red Dog...........Come-on man you'll be ok Red Dog, just be yourself, don't copy others you'll be accepted, people will love you........you may well be young but you'll find when you try to be like other men, some see that as sort of creepy [if you know what I mean]...........Regards Red Dog, your pal, RED DOG

I hope that is the case . If nothing else came out of Richt wasting a lot of  Scholarships on walk-on

players, I hope he now knows how one Scholarship to the right person can make a huge difference in how the season turns out.

A lot have changed at Georgia since then. Don't judge us by what was the norm back years ago. Remember who the Recruiting Coordinator was. Everything has changed now and everybody will see how much better it will be the next 3 to 5 years. Georgia just needs to pay these guy whatever it will take to keep them together for the next 5 years.

Don't rule out Dallas to UGA on NSD. Word is Bama is about to take a commit from another guard (Brandon Kennedy) and that will be the 4 guard possible center player commited to this class. Add in we signed 3 of those top guards this past Feb and that might be just enough to send Dallas elsewhere. We'll see. One has to assume Saban doesn't care if in fact we do accept the commit of Kennedy. Humm.

@TIDE_ROLL Man I don't know what to think about a hayseed from Alabama, Man your were born in "ALABAMA" the dumbest state any where.  When comedians make jokes about the South they always use Alabama.  When I was stationed at Red Stone, AL a National Guard Company came down for their 2 weeks training from Indiana.  One of the men told me and this is no lie. He said, "When I crossed the Tennessee line into Alabama I felt all my intelligence being sucked out of my brain".  He also told me that he had always thought Alabama was full of red necks, trailer trash, snuff dipping inbred dim-witted idiots, but now that he was in Alabama he did not think it any more, HE KNEW IT.  No bull just fact, this story is true.  And tide-roll you have the gall to run your mouth on a Georgia blog.  Hahahaha, Alabama.

@TIDE_ROLL Lining up behind a  combination of  Andrews, Kublanow. Pyke, Theus, Houston , Beard is  a  solid  line. Why does a GT fan hide  behind a  Alabama  moniker.? With every post  you show  your ignorance, keep going  , I'm getting a  good laugh each time  I read one. If you didnt notice Georgia  offense  against  tougher  SOS and  with several injuries  was still more  productive than the  Bama offense.in 2013.

You are a strange one indeed.  Completely obsessed with UGA & the Coaching staff.

If you don't get help at Charter, Please get help from somewhere else.  Tick Tick Tick

Article didn't mention them so I assume they are. Is this a weak attempt at a backhanded commit regarding Fenteng?

@OriginalATLien  It says in the very first sentence that's committed to UGA and it says in the last sentence that he will enroll in Jan
