Georgia Adds Three Commitments To 2013 Class

Friday certainly was good for Georgia as the Bulldogs added three commitments to the class of 2013.

Offensive lineman Aulden Bynum of Valdosta, Ga., wide receiver Kyrin Priester of Snellville, Ga., and linebacker Ryne Rankin from Orlando, Fla., gave their pledges to Georgia on Friday.

“I love everything about the University,” Bynum told Dawgs247.com. “Georgia has been my home for 17 years and I wanted it to continue to be my home.”

Rankin gave his commitment after receiving an offer from Georgia earlier in the week.

“When I went up there, the atmosphere was great,” Rankin told Dawgs247. “The people there were great. The facilities were great. The academics were great. It just felt like the best fit for me.”

Georgia has 12 commitments for the 2013 class and should be able to fit in plenty more before the year is finished.

Rankin, running back Derrick Henry, quarterback Brice Ramsey and wide receiver Tramel Terry all plan to enroll at Georgia in January. Others are considering the same, which could allow the Bulldogs to bring in more than 30 prospects in 2013.

“I know we can sign as much room as we can sign backwards and forwards, so it can be a pretty healthy class,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said on Saturday.

Georgia Adds Receiver To 2012 Class, Loses One For 2013

Georgia’s wide receiver class for 2012 grew by one on Saturday when Blake Tibbs committed to the Bulldogs.

That news came as the 2013 class was dropping by one when Georgia lost its commitment from Tramel Terry.

The Terry news isn’t all bad for the Bulldogs. The receiver from Goose Creek (S.C.) High School said he’s still considering Georgia. He just believes he jumped the gun in July when he made his commitment.

“Yeah, I pretty much rushed my decision,” Terry told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I don’t want to be committed to Georgia unless I’m 100 percent in. I have other schools I’m looking at.”

Those schools are South Carolina and Clemson and Terry admitted there’s pressure from fans to choose an in-state school. Georgia has a long way to go if it wants to hold on to its lead for Terry’s services.

“Georgia is still on top of my list,” he said. “I just feel like I wasn’t committed even when I was, so it was time to go ahead and do this.”

Tibbs thought the same with his decision to commit to Georgia. The Bulldogs just recently offered him a scholarship.

“I watched college football all day on Saturday, started thinking about recruiting, and UGA kept popping in my head,” Tibbs told the AJC. “I was thinking about all the boys in my area (Atlanta area) that Georgia is recruiting … and that if we all go down to Georgia together, we can make an impact there.”

Georgia’s class of 2012 grew to 15 members with the commitment from Tibbs. Terry’s decommitment leaves the Bulldogs with three commitments for 2013.

Georgia’s Recruiting Grows For 2012 And Beyond

Georgia’s future looks brighter thanks to Dawg Night 2011.

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.”
