Dawgs offer powerful Peach State OL
It looks to be a solid year for interior offensive linemen in the state of Georgia in 2009. Johnnie Farms is one of the best has reeled in some impressive offers early on from schools like Alabama, Florida, North Carolina and now the University of Georgia has extended an offer his way.
"Georgia sent me an offer last Thursday," said Farms. "My Uncle had talked to Coach [Stacy] Searels on the phone a couple of times and he said they were going to offer me and I got the letter on Thursday."
He has some interest in the Dawgs and a former teammate of Farms at Perry is helping UGA recruit him.
"Coach Searels told my uncle that I am high on their list, so I have some interest in them. I have been to Georgia before, so I know some about them. I like them and I know someone there too."
"Ben Harden is there and he used to play here at Perry too. He tells me it is great there and that there is not better place than Georgia. He has been calling me a lot telling me to come there, but he also said he would pull for me if I went somewhere else."
The in-state Bulldogs are the most recent school to offer the 6-foot-3, 295-pound mauler out of middle Georgia. Another SEC school offered him last week during a visit and then the National Champion Tigers offered him last week as well.
"I went over to Alabama last week for junior day and I loved it," he said. "I liked the coaches and the way they had things set up over there. I got to sit down and talk with Coach Nick Saban in his office and he told me that they wanted me and he offered me. I was treated like a President over there - they called my name out in the stadium, all the coaches showed me a lot of attention and it was great."
