Dowtin didnít want to leave Athens

Three of the six official visitors in Athens this weekend were already committed to Georgia before their visits began. One of those committed prospects was four-star linebacker Marcus Dowtin.

"It was just what I expected this weekend, I had a great time," said Dowtin about his first Georgia game day experience. "I expected the fans to be great, for Georgia to play great and for it to be a lot of fun and it was all of that."

Dowtin could not have selected a better time to visit Athens than Blackout Auburn Saturday. The Dawgs asked the fans to wear black and then they revealed black jerseys for the first time ever. This UGA commitment loved what he saw.

"The black jerseys created a lot of excitement and the fans went crazy when the team came out. The players did not even expect to wear them, so the fans did not know anything. It was crazy and real exciting."
