With 15 FBS offers, safety Erik Huhn (Cibolo, Texas/Steele) has his choice of where to play college football. As he continues to look at each offer equally, he admitted the offer from Georgia made him think a little harder.
Huhn picked up an offer from Georgia and Northwestern last week, and both are programs that intrigue him for separate reasons. Playing for Georgia would get the 6-foot-3, 205-pound safety closer to family.
“My grandparents live in Athens, Ga., so that’d be a good thing,” Huhn said. “They’ve been there for a long time. My grandpa has had season tickets to games for I don’t know how long.
“Oh, and plus, it’s SEC football. That’s one of the best conferences in the nation.”
Huhn said Northwestern doesn’t have the immediate family members, but it is a school that catches his attention.
“I think my dad likes it because of the academics,” Huhn said. “He’s always giving me the academic speech. I know that it’s also the Big Ten, and there are good teams there.”
Huhn is being recruited to Georgia by defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. He is being recruited to Northwestern by secondary coach Jerry Brown.
Huhn finished the 2011 season with 83 tackles and eight interceptions. He also holds offers from Oklahoma, Nebraska, TCU, Baylor and a host of other schools.
