Georgia Receives Commitments for ’13, ’14

Georgia’s recruiting momentum carried into the weekend when the Bulldogs received commitments for the 2013 and and 2014 classes.

Defensive back Reggie Wilkerson from North Marion High School in Citron, Fla., became Georgia’s 15th commitment for the 2013 class. He’s Georgia’s 6th commitment in the last 10 days.

“I picked Georgia because it feels like family,” Wilkerson told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I have great chemistry with the coaches and I’ve bonded well with the players. It feels like home to me. I feel this is a place where I can come in and compete for the starting job on the first day.”

Wilkerson will have plenty of competition when he arrives. The Bulldogs have commitments from five defensive backs and could add to that number by signing day. Georgia is expected to bring in more than 30 prospects in 2013.

Georgia has already found three commitments for the 2014class now that wide receive Demarre Kitt from Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, Ga., has given his pledge to the Bulldogs. Kitt joins cornerback Nick Glass and running back Stanley Williams as Georgia commits for 2014.

“Nick is committed to Georgia, and that helped a little with my decision,” Kitt told the AJC.

It has to help Georgia coach Mark Richt that he’s no longer answering questions about his job security. That was one of the hot topics in the SEC heading into the 2011 season.

That discussion quieted after Georgia posted a 10-2 record in the regular season. And Richt has taken advantage of it.

“I know, I think it’s a good thing – there’s a lot of people really interested in the Dawgs,” Richt said. “There are a lot of good players, and we’ve been doing a good job of evaluating and getting offers to them. And the guys are responding, and I’m excited for it.”

Georgia Lands In-State Prospect For ’14 Class

Defensive back Nick Glass from St. Pius X Catholic High School became Georgia’s second commitment for the 2014 class on Wednesday.

“It felt like home … why not help out the home school?” Glass said, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Glass chose Georgia over an impressive offer list, which includes Auburn, Tennessee, Clemson, Georgia Tech, Ohio State and others. Alabama, which signed St. Pius cornerback Geno Smith in February, was close to offering Glass, he said.

Of course, there will be plenty of time for other schools to recruit Glass and try to persuade him to look elsewhere. But for now, Georgia will be happy to hold the lead for his services.

Glass joins running back Stanley Williams from Bethleham, Ga., on Georgia’s commitment list for 2013.
