Four-star defensive tackle Albert Huggins had to put recruiting on the back burner Friday and Saturday as Orangeburg-Wilkinson begins practice.

“We started practice on Friday.  I had to get up around 4 o’clock.  We had to be on the field at 6:30.  We started early because of the weather.  Saturday we practiced at the same time,” said Huggins.

In July the All-American visited Georgia and came away impressed.

“It went good.  I saw some things I really liked up there.  I got to sit down with the coaches and talk about family and the defensive plays.  I got to talk with coach Richt.  We had a good conversation about life,” said Huggins.

Are in other visits in the works?

“No, not really.  I don’t have any planned right now,” replied Huggins.

Bert would like to find time for one more visit before the season.

“I would like to get to Florida before school starts, but I don’t know for sure.  I am trying to get that set,” said Huggins.

When asked about his current favorites, Huggins responded, “I really don’t have any.  I am just trying to learn more about the schools.  I am still trying to learn more”.

There are two more schools Bert would like to visit and they will receive official visits.

“I want to see Florida State and Auburn.  They will get official visits,” said Huggins.

What is the latest on his decision timing?

“If I can get a couple of official visits out of the way at the beginning of the season it may be closer than we all think.  I have my season on the way so I need to focus on that.  It may be at the end of the season or it could be during the season,” said Huggins.

The OW standout has enjoyed the recruiting process, but he finds himself up at night thinking about the decision.

“Right now I am still enjoying it.  I have enjoyed it for the past three years.  Sometime it gets nerve racking, but I enjoy it.  I try not to get stressed with all the stuff.  There are times where I stay up at 3 at night thinking about it,” said Huggins.
