Yesterday, the Georgia Bulldogs picked up the second recruit of their 2015 recruiting class in four-star defensive back Rico McGraw. McGraw is a 6-0, 180-pound safety from Nashville, Tennessee and chose the Dawgs over offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, LSU, Missouri, Penn State, South Carolina and others.
It says a lot for McGraw to commit so early, with so many other schools showing real interest in him, and it also says something about what Georgia is doing.
Of course, the first thing I thought when I saw the news was “it must be because of Pruitt,” but that’s probably a bit of an exxageration. Either way, the Dawgs are creating a solid 2015 class with McGraw and four-star reciever Christian Owens out of Georgia.
While it’s still very early, Rivals.com pegs McGraw as the No. 13 defensive back in the country for the class of 2015. Not a bad pick up at all. The decision is even more surprising because back in December, McGraw told Rivals that Alabama, Tennessee and Ohio State were his top three schools… clearly, something changed.
While Georgia fans wait on McGraw to get to college, they might be interested in knowing that he and his high school team have won three state titles in a row (the high school has won four in a row). He’ll be gunning for his fourth next season… and that’s pretty wild to think about. Things are looking up in Athens.
