NCAA rules prohibit a coach from mentioning or discussing a recruit before a national letter of intent is signed on the first Wednesday of February each year but it’s clear what has Georgia coach Mark Richt excited.
The Bulldogs received a verbal commitment Friday afternoon from the number one player in the state of Florida who also happens to be the number two running back in the country. Sony Michel is a consensus five star back from Fort Lauderdale that selected the Dawgs over Miami, Notre Dame and most every other major college football program. The 5-11, 205 pound Michel becomes the fifth member of the class of 2014.
North Carolina tight end Jeb Blazevich kicked off the exciting week for the Dawg Nation Tuesday afternoon when he made his decision public. The 6-5, 230 pound All American is the 5th ranked tight end nationally.
The Bulldogs are expected to sign two running backs next February and with Herschel’s nephew still giving the Dawgs a look, they could add another tight end.
