It was another successful trip to Athens, Ga., for ESPN 300 running back A.J. Turman. The 6-foot, 205-pound senior watched Georgia inch closer to an SEC East Division title and brought his parents with him.

"It was a great trip, I enjoyed myself and my parents enjoyed it too," Turman said. "Everyone’s very friendly there; it’s a very family-like atmosphere all around campus.

"We spent more time with some of the academic advisors and going over the curriculum at the school. They did a good job of explaining the process of selecting a major. We saw a few other things as well. Overall it was a productive trip."
