Busy weekend for LeMay

Bulter (Matthews, N.C.) wide receiver Uriah LeMay is not the kind of prospect to take opportunity or a high ranking for granted.

The four-star playmaker is a competitor above all, and after spending Thursday at South Carolina, and visiting Georgia Friday and Saturday for their its spring scrimmage, LeMay decided to compete in the Rivals/VTO Elite 100 camp in Charlotte on Sunday.

Lemay was one of the top performers at the event, and according to Rivals.com National Recruiting Analyst, Mike Farrell, the Rivals250 receiver has a chance to make a huge impact at the next level based on his impressive showing in Charlotte.

"LeMay is a big and physical receiver who got off the line of scrimmage well, handled any attempts at press coverage with ease and caught the ball well despite gaining consistent separation," said Farrell in his Rivals/VTO NC: Top skill position players article. "What he lacks in top end speed he makes up for with strong hands, good body positioning and the ability to adjust to the football. He's a possession receiver and a red zone threat at the next level and a good one."

Lemay was also proud of the way he performed in Charlotte as well.

"The camp was good. There was a lot of good competition out there, which makes me better and a few people I knew which was fun," said Lemay. "I ran the shuttle in a 4.18, which I was pretty satisfied with. I also got a chance to compete with some guys that are considered top guys and caught every ball that hit my hands. I also competed very well in the final elite players at the end of the day."

Before LeMay made the trip back to North Carolina to compete in the VTO event, he took the two visits to visit SEC east rivals South Carolina and Georgia.

The Georgia visit was one that was a little different than most others due to the fact that he was able to see his brother, Georgia redshirt freshman quarterback Christian LeMay, participate in the Bulldogs spring scrimmage.

According to the 2013 playmaker, the chance to play with his brother is a great opportunity, but is also something that has to be considered carefully.

"It (playing football with his brother) is a very appealing opportunity and is something I think on at times," he said. "Yet I still have to seek all of my options at this time."

LeMay has taken many trips to Athens over the past couple of years as a recruit, to see his brother in uniform, and on visits with his brother when he was being recruited.

According to the North Carolina native, however, this visit was different than the ones he had taken in the past.

"Every time has been good," said LeMay. "But this trip was a chance to really evaluate and watch how I would fit into the system."

While LeMay was able to find a difference between this visit and past trips to Athens, pinpointing his favorite part of the trip is a task that isn't quite as simple.

"I loved the whole trip so guess it was all a highlight," he said. "I got to meet with Coach (Tony) Ball, (Mark) Richt, (Mike) Bobo and a number of players. I arrived on Friday and got on the field for the play side view both Friday and Saturday. I really enjoyed my time at UGA. I got a chance to spend some quality time with Coach Ball and see practice first hand, observing how things are done. UGA, as a program is, clearly among the best I've seen throughout my visits."

The Georgia staff has offered 16 wide receivers in the class of 2013, but LeMay believes he is one of the Bulldogs' top priorities in this class.

"From all conversations I have had it appears that I am high on their priority for 2013," said LeMay. "Coach Ball appears quite sincere in his interest."

LeMay is getting set to take a little break from recruiting, and it is a rest that he is very much looking forward to at this point in the process.

"I am just taking a little week off in respect to the family," said LeMay. "Over the years we have done a lot of trips for football, so I'm spending a week doing trips and activities of the family's choice outside of football. During the time away Ill be reflecting and thinking on my top list of schools to release a top 10 by May 1 and top five by June 1."

The four-star pass catcher admits that no school or visit really stands out for him at this time, but he does know exactly what he is looking for in a school and coaching staff at the next level.

"In a coaching staff, I am looking for consistency, honesty and being forward about everything through the whole process," he said. "In a school, I am looking at the environment, for a place that will help develop me mentally, socially, spiritually and academically."
