Heritage DB Garry Peters has Georgia on his mind

Heritage defensive back Garry Peters has Georgia on his mind. But Peters is not sure how much he is on Georgia’s mind.

Peters went to UGA’s Junior Day last Saturday, and he was hoping to walk away with an early offer. He didn’t, but he’s not complaining. He said he feels blessed to have around 12 offers, including Tennessee, Clemson, Alabama, Auburn and Tennessee.

“I have mixed feelings about Georgia,” Peters said. “I was disappointed I didn’t get offered. But Georgia is still my hometown team, and I’ll always keep them in my top 10.”

Peters said he was encouraged after being recognized by Georgia coach Mark Richt. “There were around 100 prospects there,” Peters said. “I didn’t wear my nametag and [Richt] said my name. He said ‘We need to get you up here to watch film. It’s great seeing you.’”

Peters said he plans to travel to Tennessee or Auburn next.

    Smokey bear is smoking some old rocky top hash. Ga will offer, stay in the books and not in a teacher face, if you do that now, imagine what will happen in college. Of course not at GA (Moody)

    Hey Gary-Dont threaten a teacher or be an overall lowlife and you could be in the UGA family-a very special place.

    Smokey Bear knows what we all do: UT loves thugs. You can’t watch a film of Albert Haynesworth scraping his cleats across the face of his opponent and not think “that’s UT football!” So Gary if you want to be a Vol, be all the thug you can be.

    By the way Smokey excellent use of “aka”. UT grad I see. I bet you aced Incest 101 and Moonshine Makin’.

    Dexter Moody is trouble. I have an old friend who coaches HS down that way. Word on the street is that he did some things that are not acceptable under any condition. Under any condition is what he did considered to be mainstream conduct.

    When confronted about it, he was out of control and it involved a teacher. Out of control and HE used very, very bad judgement. The young man COST HIMSELF the spot at UGA, whether he wanted to be there or NOT to be there, does not matter. In life we must learn to accept responsiblity for our actions or inactions that lead us to bad results.
    See the rape artist at Tech last year and Joe Hamilton the former Tech QB or Reuben Houston, the North Avenue drug dealer.

    Yes, GArry…. if you’re a thug, Tennessee is definitely your school. See, at Georgia, if you threaten a teacher, you get the boot….. at Tennessee, you can smoke pot, tear off your shirt and yell “WILD BOYZ”, and generally just act like a complete moron all with the coaches blessing. Hey! Who knows? You may even leave Knoxville with enough character to kill people like Leonard Little and Donte Stallworth, brutalize women like Reynoch Thompson, or simply start your own home drug-dealing business like Travis Henry and countless other proud UT “alums”. Yes, young man….. go to Tennessee….. a tradition of character(s).

    Go Garry, you are the best! The GA colleges are missing out on a very talented and gifted football player. It is their loss!
