Big-time DL gets offer

Rivals100 defensive tackle Travonte Valentine's offer list reads like a Who's Who of top universities, but Friday the former Louisville and Florida commit conceded that Georgia is indeed on his mind.

The 6-foot-3, 286-pound defensive lineman told UGASports.com's Jake Rowe that he's now considering the Bulldogs after Georgia defensive line coach Chris Wilson offered him a scholarship.

Although the conversation was brief as Valentine did not have time for an interview, Valentine called the Bulldog offer "a blessing" and Georgia "definitely has a chance."

He plans to visit Athens sometimes this summer.

It won't be his first visit to the Peach State.

Valentine actually called Georgia "home" after growing up in Moultrie as a youngster.

Among his offers are ones from Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma, Miami, Ohio State and USC.
