Fisher-Davis takes in UGA

Four-star hoops performer Matthew Fisher-Davis said Georgia made a big impression during his official visit to Athens Saturday.

"Georgia is high up there in my top four. I only have a top four right now with a couple more officials to take," the 6-foot-5 shooting guard told Sunday. "There is not an order right now but Georgia is definitely up there fresh off this visit there."

The Bulldogs are in some pretty esteemed company when it comes the services of the Charlotte, N.C. native, who along with Georgia, confirmed Sunday that Vanderbilt, Virginia and Wake Forest are his other three favorite schools.

The 2014 recruit said he hopes to make up his mind later this month or sometimes in early October.

"The biggest thing right now is my comfort level. I want to be comfortable with the players, with the coaches, and the system," he said. "I want to be able to come in and play and I want to be comfortable with that."

Along with spending time with head coach Mark Fox and his staff, Fisher-Davis took in Saturday's 41-30 football victory over South Carolina.

"I had a lot of fun at there at Georgia," he said. "It was a crazy week to go up there for the football game but I had a lot of fun."

One thing that could perhaps work in the Bulldogs' favor is one of his current classmates at North Carolina Christian has ties to UGA.

Bulldog football commitment Jeb Blazevich also hails from the same high school.

"My visit was nice. They spent a lot of time with me and we got a chance to hang out," Fisher-Davis said. "I feel really comfortable around them. It was cool."

"I have a pretty good relationship with them. I joke around with them and they joke around with me. It isn't like it is serious all the time. I have a lot of fun around them."

Fisher-Davis said he liked what Fox had to say.

"He is a really cool guy. He is cerebral about the game, of course. Everyone knows that, but he is kind of a laid back guy to hang around with, too," he said. "I feel like I could come out and get some good minutes early. I could come in as a freshman and I see that Coach Fox's last couple of wings have played well and gotten a lot of chances."
