Georgia Offers In-State Receiver

Georgia has offered a scholarship to wide receiver Blake Tibbs from M.L. King High School in Atlanta.

Georgia is one of the top four schools being considered by Tibbs, who also has Arkansas, Kentucky and Southern Miss on his list. He received the offer from Georgia coach Mark Richt on Friday.

“We just caught up, and I told Coach Richt that I was interested and that I definitely wanted to make a visit to Athens,” Tibbs said. “I told him I was still going to take my other visits. Coach Richt was telling me that was good, but he also said, ‘You don’t want to miss out somewhere you really want to be.’

“I told him I was thankful for the offer but I wasn’t ready to make a decision right now because I need to visit some places to see what’s the best fit for me. It was a good conversation.”

Georgia’s need for another receiver in the 2012 class likely came after C.J. Curry decommitted from the Bulldogs earlier this month. Curry has switched his pledge to Oklahoma State.

“I know they had one wide receiver spot left before C.J. de-committed, so I guess they had another opening and went ahead and offered me,” Tibbs said. “I guess that’s the reason I got the offer. I’m hoping they didn’t want to miss out on any hometown talent from Georgia.”
