Richt checks in on LeMay

Butler High's Uriah LeMay has long been one of Georgia's top targets at wide receiver for 2013, and recently Bulldog coach Mark Richt called the North Carolina standout to make sure he still knew that was the case.

"It was a great feeling and exciting to hear," said LeMay, who now lists 24 offers on his ledger, including ones earlier this week from Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

The 6-foot-2, 188-pound younger brother of current Bulldog quarterback Christian LeMay said the conversation with Richt was a positive one and he appreciated what he had to say.

"He said they had watched and enjoyed watching me grow into the player I have become over the years, as well as affirming the offer ad strong interest in having me at Georgia," the current high school junior said.

The feeling is apparently mutual, although LeMay will still take his time before making his college choice known.

Brother Christian has offered his own words of wisdom, advice Uriah is taking to heart.

"Really just to not rush into anything," Uriah LeMay said. "Just make sure it all fits for me in all aspects of the school not just football and to wait for the peace of God to settle on me before making a decision."

That's a lesson he said Christian taught him well.

"One of the many things I am picking up and applying to my situation that I got from Christian is to wait for the peaceful feeling within you, your family, & God before finalizing the selected school," Uriah LeMay said.

Although he's still waiting, several aspects about the Bulldog program stand out to LeMay, who obviously has been to Georgia a number of times.

So far he likes what he's seen.

"I would probably have to say the facilities as well as Coach (Tony) Ball the wide receivers coach. The facilities there are of very high quality in every aspect," LeMay said. "As far as Coach Ball I have had a chance to watch him coach in practice, be coached by him in a camp and also have a few conversations with him. He seems to be a great mentor for me for the next few years if I were to enroll there."

So what's next?

LeMay said he still has not narrowed his list of schools, but added that his family, including Christian, will have a say in the process.

"All I can say now is it will be forthcoming," said LeMay, who added he will definitely be back in Athens very soon.

"We were just there visiting Christian for a few days," he said. "I'm not 100% sure of the next visit. The only time we have somewhat planned is in early march during our spring break and their spring practice."
