“He said I’m going to stay in Georgia. They are going to find me a job. I’m going to work. I’m going to physical therapy at least seven days per week. I guess I will work, go to physical therapy and get strong … I will come in with the class of 2013. I’ll get there with the early group so I can do winter workouts and spring football.”
BTW, the kid had a knee injury his senior year and isn't likely gong to be ready in the fall. He also still wants to go to Alabama.

Personally, I'd go somewhere else-- like Western Kentucky University. I've heard that campus is beautiful and you could start the first day you arrived!
