The Bulldogs received a commitment on Friday from 2012 offensive lineman John Theus from The Bolles School in Jacksonville, Fla.
Theus, who is Georgia’s 11th commitment for the class of 2012, is considered a four-star prospect and the sixth-best offensive tackle in the nation by ESPN.com.
The bigger payoff for Georgia’s recruiting came in the 2013 class. Three rising juniors – running back Derrick Henry, quarterback Brice Ramsey and wide receiver Tramel Terry – gave their pledges to the Bulldogs.
“To be honest, I couldn’t wait for this to happen,” Ramsey told ESPN.com. “I couldn’t wait for Georgia to offer and they finally did back in the spring. I wanted to commit but I wanted to wait for the perfect time. Tonight was the perfect time. Honestly, Georgia was the only team I was really ever considering.”
Georgia’s coaches might not have known a prospect from the 2014 class was considering giving the Bulldogs a commitment. But that happened when head coach Mark Richt offered a scholarship to running back Stanley Williams, a rising sophomore from Bethlehem, Ga.
“Coach Richt offered and I committed on the spot,” Williams said. “I kind of discussed things with my parents last week in case something like this would happen so I already knew coming in what I would do if I got that offer. Georgia is close to home, it’s a great school, organization and coaching staff to be around. I love it. It’s UGA. It’s my dream to play between the hedges.”
