Georgia football team lands two commitments Monday

LB Carter commits

Georgia’s growing class of 2013 added another linebacker when South Gwinnett linebacker Reggie Carter committed to the Bulldogs on Monday.

“Georgia is a great school. I like the coaches there a lot, and I felt very comfortable there,” Carter told Scout.com’s Chad Simmons.

Carter transferred to South Gwinnett last fall after playing at Stephenson the year before. But he tore his ACL during the first game of the season. The injury sidelined him for the remainder of the year.

Carter picked the Bulldogs over nearly 20 other programs, including Florida State and Alabama. The 6-2, 230-pound prospect is expected to play middle linebacker in Georgia’s 3-4 scheme.

“I felt good around the coaches and the people at Georgia,” he said. “I also like their defense, how I could play in it and how they could make me better.”

 

Green gives verbal

Camden County athlete J.J. Green has committed to Georgia. He confirmed the news to Scout.com’s Chad Simmons Monday afternoon.

Ramsey, and the day’s earlier commitment by Carter, gives Georgia 14 commitments for the class of 2013 — tied with Florida for the most in the Southeastern Conference at this time. Green become Georgia’s sixth overall commitment in the last five days.

Green is the second player to commit to the Bulldogs from powerhouse high school program Camden County. Four-star quarterback Ramsey was happy about the news.

“It’s really great because we’ve been playing together since rec ball,” Ramsey said of Green’s commitment. “We’ve always said that we wanted to get to play together in college, and now we will.”

Simmons said Green will be well used on the college level.

“Green is an exceptional athlete,” Simmons said. “He will likely be utilized all over the field on the next level. He made plays in the secondary, out of the backfield and on special teams as a junior at Camden County.”

Green will likely be considered a three-star prospect later this year. He was featured as a running back, but made most of his game-breaking plays as a return man for the Wildcats. He is also a cornerback for Camden County.
