Recruiting Notebook: Talented JRs visit UGA

With Georgia being close to full in the class of 2009, they are really putting a lot of focus on the talented juniors in the state of Georgia. The Bulldogs always look to sign the top in-state talent and they had some talented underclassmen on campus for the Tennessee game on Saturday.

Krause Loves UGA Atmosphere

South Gwinnett wide receiver Jonathan Krause has visited UGA twice this fall for games. He was at Alabama to see the Dawgs fall to the Crimson Tide, but he returned to see UGA bounce back with a win over Tennessee.

He has seen the good and the bad in 2008 and he loves the Athens atmosphere.

"Truthfully, I would do anything to play in the type of atmosphere they have at Georgia," said Krause. "The fans are great, the crowd is loud, and they really support their team. I would love to play in an atmosphere like that."

The 5-foot-11, 160 pound wideout was in Athens with his father and younger brother this weekend and he saw a lot of similarities to two weeks ago.

"It was really about the same as the Alabama game. One game was at night and the other was in the afternoon, but the crowd was great and it was about the same. Georgia won this time and that was different, but everything was about the same."

Georgia is one of many schools showing the smooth receiver early attention.

"I hear a lot from Georgia, Florida, Vanderbilt, and Florida State. I am getting mails from Virginia Tech, UCF, Alabama and others too."

The home state Bulldogs are one of his favorites early.

"I definitely have Georgia up there," he admitted. "Georgia, Florida, Miami, and USC are up there on my list."

He has visited Athens twice so far and he will be back.
