While Mark Richt was busy sending one member of Georgia’s defense on his way out, the Georgia Bulldogs recruiting staff landed a nice prize when 3-star linebacker Juwan Taylor (Hallandale, Fl. Hallandale HS) committed to Georgia’s class of 2015.
Taylor is the 9th recruit to commit to the 2015 class, as the news was first reported by 247Sports.com.
The 6-foot-2, 200-pound linebacker had offers from at least a dozen schools, including Arkansas, Clemson, LSU, Mississippi State and Tennessee, but committed to the Dawgs just four weeks after receiving his offer.
Taylor is the No. 30 inside linebacker and the No. 100 ranked player in the state of Florida according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings, and looks to be an immediate impact player for the 2015 class.
In speaking with Jake Reuse of UGASports.com, Taylor made the following comments about his recruiting visit with coach Mike Ekeler:
“It was amazing. He just had that hype to him, like he wants you there right now. He got me really excited. I hadn’t ever talked to them, gotten mail, or anything. He just came to the school, saw me, checked me out, watched my film, and they want me to be an inside linebacker. He was impressed with what he saw. I was so, so excited. It meant a lot to me. When I was growing up, I always saw myself playing for Georgia.” I used to watch their linebacker (Alec) Ogletree, and I looked up to him.”
This will be another boost to a Georgia recruiting class that has already started climbing up the rankings, now perched with the No. 13 class in the nation.
