With a junior season that saw ESPN Watch List linebacker Raekwon McMillan (Hinesville, Ga./Liberty Co.) rack up 151 tackles, seven sacks, five forced fumbles -- one of which he returned for a TD, one interception, 316 yards rushing and nine touchdowns, it comes as no surprise that over 40 programs have extended offers to the 6-foot-2, 235-pound prospect.

As someone who grew up following the Georgia Bulldogs, McMillan is aware of the concern that he will exit the state to play college football because of recent junior day visits to Alabama, Clemson and Florida. Having early leaders like Ohio State and Clemson has also played into that perception.

“Everybody thinks that I have left Georgia out, but I have been to Georgia at least six times already,” McMillan said. “Georgia has always been in my top five. I love Coach [Mark] Richt, I love talking to him and I love talking to Coach O (Kirk Olivadotti). I just want look around and make sure I am being thorough with the recruiting process. I don’t want to just go to Georgia because I am an in-state player. I want to make my decision true and honest.”
