Want a daily lap through Georgia football recruiting? That’s what the Intel will bring at least five days a week. We’ll cover the news and which way a hot in-state recruit such as Curtis Fann Jr. might lean plus add some perspective to help fans figure out what it all means.
“I feel like they want me,” Fann said of Georgia. “As you already know, I’ve always liked Georgia. But I feel like my interest grew even more after the visit and the camp. I had a pretty good camp there, too.”
UGA even explained why it was a little slower to offer than Alabama, Auburn, LSU and South Carolina.
“I went to Georgia in my freshman year and I’ve grown like an inch-and-a-half and put on 30 pounds since then. They were thinking I was still about 6-1 and 220. They were looking at my old stats and then when Coach [Tray] Scott came in they changed everything up. Coach Scott didn’t know too much about me since he just got the job. I think those were the main reasons.”
Coach Kirby Smart made sure to stop by his line during the stretching period to make sure Fann knew that he was glad to see him at the camp.
“He told me to keep working hard and to keep pushing,” Fann said.
Fann said he hasn’t thought about where Georgia ranks among his options after the camp.
“I haven’t sat down to think about any of that yet,” he said. “It is going to be soon. I won’t say that I have a leader right now but [UGA] is definitely high on my list.”

Curtis Fann’s work at the Kirby Smart Camp
He checked in at 6-foot-2.5 and 243 pounds at UGA on Friday. Scott wanted to get a good look at Fann, mainly to see how he competed. Fann started moving to the front of the line early in drill periods of his Friday afternoon camp.
When it came time for individual 1-on-1 reps, Scott also kept moving Fann up to the front of the pack for specific matchups.
That was his favorite part. Fann said he won “three or four” of an estimated “five or six” reps and the other two were stalemated.
“Coach Scott just wanted to see how I would get after it,” Fann said. “He wanted to see me work hard and see me grind. He said he was happy with how I worked at the camp.”
