Schools Interested, but is Tyson looking?

Five-star defensive tackle DeAngelo Tyson gave the University of Georgia an early verbal commitment back in March. He chose the Dawgs over some very powerful programs back then, but not all of them have backed off. He is one of the top players in the country and signing day is still months away, so is Tyson as solid to UGA as he once was?

"I am still very excited and very happy with decision," Tyson said about choosing to be a Georgia Bulldog. "I am definitely going to Georgia and I still very solid."

Georgia was one of many top programs to offer this Rivals100 five-star defensive tackle out of Statesboro (Ga.). Not all the schools have stopped showing him attention since his commitment early in the spring.

"Some have backed off and some haven't," he said. "Alabama, Tennessee and Florida are some of the schools still recruiting me. I still get some mail, but I am not looking at anyone else. Some of the schools have stopped because they know I am committed to Georgia."

The coach Tyson stays in contact with from UGA is Jon Fabris and they have been keeping in touch.

"I talk to him like once a week. We talk about my school work, how to be a team guy and things like that. He always tells me to make good choices and to always work hard. He is a cool coach and I like him a lot."

Coach Fabris thinks the 6-foot-2, 291-pound tackle made a very good choice when he chose the Dawgs and his former and future teammate thinks so too.

"I have been talking to Justin Houston since he moved up to Georgia and he tells me I am going to love it," Tyson said. "We talk a lot on the internet and he likes it up there a lot. He tells me how it is there and how I am going to like it when I get up there."

Getting to Athens early was something Tyson was thinking hard about before he received the news that he would not be able to do that.
