"My coach (Jeff Terrill) kept telling me that Georgia was looking at me and I finally got on the phone with them last week to talk to them," said Pernell McPhee. "I know they had been interested, but when I talked to them I was not expecting them to offer, but they did. It was a big surprise."

McPhee is fresh off a visit to Ann Arbor where he took a long look at the Michigan program. He liked what he saw in the Wolverines, but something about Georgia has moved them up to the top.

"What I like about Georgia is their tradition, how they put guys in the NFL, and they are always a team that can compete for championships. Other than those things, I don't really know much about them yet."
