Return trip pays off for wide receiver

C.J. Curry joked that he had an inkling that he might be getting some good news from Georgia coaches during Dawg Night Friday.

After getting previous attention from Alabama and Vanderbilt, Georgia became the first school to make the North Hall standout an offer to join the Bulldog program.

"That means a lot," Curry said in a telephone interview with UGASports. "Georgia is actually the top college on my list, so I was pretty excited."
