Two 2010 quarterbacks visit UGA

Two highly rated signal callers in the class of 2009 have already given the University of Georgia their verbal commitments, so the Dawgs are done at that position this year. So, they are now looking ahead to the class of 2010. They will likely sign one in that class and they had two out of their own backyard in Athens recently.

Nash Nance and Jonathan Watters are both juniors, they are both quarterbacks, they are both in their first full season at starters, they are both out of northwest Georgia, and they are only 3.5 miles apart.

Nance suits up for Darlington in Rome while Watters plays for Pepperell in Lindale. Both are tall and long, both are leaders, and both are on the UGA radar as 2010 recruits.

The pair visited Athens over the weekend for the Central Michigan game.

Watters Returned To Athens

Watching the Dawgs take care of Georgia Southern was not enough for the 6-foot-4, 178 pound Pepperell Dragon. He returned to Athens for the Central Michigan game a week later.

"I have been to Georgia for their first two games and it has been a good experience for me," Watters said. "I have gotten to hear Mark Richt talk to the recruits, I have seen their highlight video, I have seen the Dawg Walk, I have gotten to go on the field, and I like all of it a lot."

"I really enjoy seeing what the players do before the game when we get to stand on the sideline. I have watched Matthew Stafford a lot since I play quarterback, but I have also watched the punters because I punt for our team too. I just try to see what they do, so maybe it could help me. I like being down there before the game."

A number of schools are showing early interest in Watters. Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, and Georgia are some schools he is receiving attention from early, but he was raised in the Peach State, so he has UGA on his mind.
