UGA’s top recruit on offense told the AJC that Mike Bobo’s departure for Colorado State “won’t have much” of an impact on his commitment to the Bulldogs.
That would be 5-star athlete Terry Godwin of Callaway High School. He’s projected to play wide receiver in college. Godwin’s primary recruiters with UGA are tight ends coach John Lilly and wide receivers coach Tony Ball.
“He (Bobo) was very involved in my recruiting because he was the OC,” Godwin said. “During my official visit, we sat down and talked about the quarterbacks and the different ways I was going to get the ball.”
So how does Bobo’s departure impact things? “It’s going to affect my commitment to UGA just a little bit, but not much because I fell in love with the school in general, along with my position coach (Ball). With losing the OC, that’s most definitely one thing I will have to look at – who they are going to bring in for the job.”
Even though Godwin has been committed to UGA for nearly a year, he has continued to flirt with other colleges. Godwin also took an official visit earlier this month with USC, and has trips scheduled for Auburn, Alabama and Texas A&M next month.
But all of that was planned before Colorado State even had a coaching vacancy.
“I’m still committed to UGA but still enjoying the recruiting process,” Godwin explained. “I’m having fun and seeing different places.”
Godwin saved his final visit for Texas A&M on Jan. 30. Then a few days later, he will finalize his college decision.
“On signing day, I’m just going to have a couple of hats sitting out, and that will be when I make everything final,” Godwin said. “But I’m still committed to UGA.”
Probably the biggest thing in UGA’s favor with Godwin is that the Bulldogs signed his older sister to a last-minute basketball scholarship last summer. He is very close to his sister.
