For many young athletes, scholarships to an array of colleges are lifelong dreams finally coming to fruition. Years of training, hundreds of hours of practice and just as much time studying to ensure their entrance into these colleges are all worth the sacrifice when that offer comes along.

Class of 2017 recruit Navaughn Donaldson felt that pay-off when Georgia Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt met with him in person following a practice and offered him a scholarship to play in Athens.

Donaldson, a 6-foot-7, 300-pound offensive tackle, would surely be too tough to show any emotion following the offer, though, right?


Donaldson lifted Richt off his feet with a large bear hug that only a man of his size could deliver.

Donaldson is currently unranked, but has six offers including one from Florida State. However, if he shows this much emotion following the offer, it may not be too difficult to picture him in a Bulldog’s uniform one day.
