Moore returns from his visit to Georgia

Rivals100 safety Rahim Moore boarded a plane and traveled across the country for the first time over the weekend to visit the University of Georgia. Moore is used to the way things go in California, so what did he think about the town of Athens?

"I can't even describe how much I loved it at Georgia," said Moore. "I loved the weather, the people, the coaches, the academics, the fans, the stadium, the facilities, the trees, the food, the ladies and everything about Georgia."

"Georgia is a lot different than it is in California and it really showed me another side of the world and another side of football. Everything about Georgia is first class and I had a phenomenal visit there."

Moore did not get into Athens until Saturday morning around 4:00am. He played a game at Dorsey in Los Angelas Friday night and then flew into Atlanta. From there he traveled to Athens and began his visit early Saturday morning.

"The game was awesome. I did not have much sleep at all, but I had a lot of fun. The crowd was great and the Dawg Walk was amazing. The people knew who I was and that amazed me."

"I had people calling me the California kid and it was cool. I saw over 90,000 people in the stadium and was really loud. Georgia has some great fans and they were really into the game. It is different from games out in California - they are like a big family at Georgia."

That family atmosphere is something this four-star safety could not stop talking about.

"Everybody knows everybody there," Moore stated. "Athens is about football and one big family inside the town. They are close, they all get along and they all care about each other."

"It was my first time there ever and they all made me feel like I was right at home. I did not want to leave - I was having a great time there."

Quite a few things stood out to the 6-foot-0, 185-pound safety and he was not bashful when asked about them.
