The central theme with University of Georgia recruiting will always be to close the borders in the Peach State. But last week, the Bulldogs went cross-country to try and land one of the best on the West Coast.

Georgia had already extended six offers to defensive linemen for the 2013 class, five of which are to in-state prospects. Head coach, recruiting coordinator and defensive line coach Rodney Garner extended his latest offer to Eddie Vanderdoes (Auburn, Calif./Placer). After talking to the ESPNU Watch List selection, it became apparent why Garner hopes to reel in the Golden State standout.

“I only spoke to Coach Garner once, and when I called him that is when he offered me,” Vanderdoes said. “He said he saw my highlight tape and that he really loves the way I play the game. He said with his coaching he could keep making me better, and I could be one of those guys like Richard Seymour that he develops for the NFL, so I thought that was really cool.”
