Shrine Bowl DE Albert Huggins of Orangeburg-Wilkinson will take an official visit to Georgia this weekend. That’s the first official visit he’s scheduled, and it might be the only one he takes.
Huggins visited Georgia a grew months ago unofficially and is looking to go even more in depth on the program on this visit on which he will be joined by his parents.
“It was a good atmosphere and they treat you well,” Huggins said. “Hopefully I can have fun and see what Georgia is all about.”
Huggins said Georgia has told him he will have an opportunity to play defensive end with them but they view him long term as a defensive tackle.
“I’m really considering Georgia,” he said. “It’s a great program. Coach Richt, coach Rocker, coach Ekeler, all of them are good coaches. I’m really interested in Georgia to see what they really have for me.”
Clemson also has been strong with Huggins for an extended period and he’s made numerous visits there. That’s why a return for an official visit, in his mind, may not be necessary.
“Right now I’m just taking it official visit by official visit,” Huggins said. “Now, let’s get Georgia out the way. Let’s take it step by step and if I have time (he’s graduating early) to take more official visits then I will do that. Is it really necessary to take an official visit to Clemson? I’ve been there a good eight or nine times. I’ve seen what I’ve need to see. If I do take an official visit to Clemson it’s just to hang out with the crew.”
Florida and North Carolina are two others Huggins would consider for visits if he decides to take other official visits. He’s also thinking about Auburn and Florida State.
Huggins said he doesn’t have a favorite at this point.
