In recruiting, the competition among college programs is not limited to getting commitments, as the University of Georgia exhibited this week with Demarre Kitt (Tyrone, Ga./Sandy Creek). After making 42 receptions for 651 yards and 10 touchdowns last year, the 6-foot-1,185-pound sophomore found out that although he is two years away from enrolling in college the Bulldogs want Kitt on campus. The war might not be over, but it would appear that Georgia has won the first battle.
“I was planning on going to Clemson this weekend, but on Friday [recruiting coordinator] Rodney Garner called up to my school and told our head coach Chip Walker that he really wanted me to visit Georgia this weekend, so I decided to come to Georgia instead,” Kitt said.
Taking in Saturday’s Very Important Dawg Day in Athens, Kitt said the time spent with the Bulldogs’ receivers coach was his favorite part of the visit. That is a good thing, considering the amount of time the two spent together.
“I was with Coach [Tony] Ball the entire time, and I was able to talk to Coach [Mike] Bobo and Coach Garner as well,” Kitt said. “I liked sitting in the meeting with Coach Ball as he taught me all of the things they do and how they would move me around and get the ball on different routes. They look like they throw the ball enough for me.”
Kitt also echoed the thoughts of the majority of prospects that have spent time on Georgia’s campus recently.
”I had a salad, two plates of pizza, wings and fries, and it was amazing,” Kitt said.
The sophomore wideout admitted that the last-minute change of plans has helped Georgia in its pursuit of his commitment, and also in his quest to find out more about one of the eight programs that have offered him to date.
“I was able to learn more about the offense, the school overall and also I grew closer to the coaching staff,” Kitt said.
Kitt plans to make up his visit to Clemson soon, and hopes to get back up to see Georgia practice as well.
