Drew is also a mentor at a local Thomasville middle school and he's an ordained minister at his church.

"My parents always instilled in me when I was younger no matter where life may take me you can never forget home or you can never forget the people who helped build up," said Drew.

    Didn't he only have 2 or 3 sacks his entire Sr year? Is he really an elite DE prospect with those numbers?

    Maybe people wouldn't "hate" on Ray, if he handled himself better. He brags about how religious he is, then does unreligious things like playing games about where he's going to school. It is immature and un christ like. If you are going to talk religion all the time, you better back it up with actions. Ellen-what in the world is “swallow minded”? HAHAHAHAHA. He said he was going to "shock the world", picking UGA wasn't a shock, thus he lied. He also lied back and forth about which schools he was interested in/not interested in. He was very immature during the whole process

    Good for You!! I pray they will keep the coaching staff there long enough. Anyway, you go on and do big things and make your people proud.

    No matter where you go I am sure you will make us all in Thomas County proud. Congrats. I was hoping you was going to say you are going where its all about " THE U"! jk. To TOM, you are upset because you did not feel like Ray Drew shocked the world. You should be ashamed for calling him a liar and questioning his "religious" status just because you FEEL like he didn't shock the world. Hey, I am shocked so I guess he is not a LIAR after all. Ray Drew God bless you and your endevors. (I have never been to a college game so if you get me tickets I'll go)! : )

    All along some have hated on the young man...even some of his own coaches. Ray let all the nay sayers be your motivation. He is a minister he knows they talked about Jesus and look at the great works he did.

    Tom or whoever you are. You really should be ashame of yourself. Why are you trying to belittle this you man for the deciding what he thinks is best for him and his family. I'm sure you would do the same thing. Teenages are making bad decisions daily, and now when in young man decides that, yes, I'm going to college and make something of myself, haters are criticizing. Congratulations Ray Drew. I wish you would have choosen UF, but Georgia is great as well. Keep you head up and let God handle the haters. Good Luck Son, and Go Dawgs!

    to Tom he isn't a liar. He just didn't tell everyone until he was ready. You must be a swallow minded person to talk about Ray like you did.

    Don't worry those guys never play up to what they are suppose to be. Always a flop when you get one of the high rated players.
