Tramel Terry, considered by many the top football recruit in South Carolina in next year’s class, has re-committed to Georgia.
The move announced today by the 5-foot-11, 185-pound Goose Creek native gives Georgia‚Äôs 2013 recruiting class another significant commitment and tremendous momentum into the busy spring evaluation period.
The wide receiver/cornerback picked Georgia over South Carolina and Clemson in part because of the relationship with many of his future teammates. Terry, quarterback Brice Ramsey and running back Derrick
Henry all committed to the Bulldogs last summer at Dawg Night. Getting Ramsey was a huge deal, but snagging arguably the two top players in Florida and South Carolina?
‚ÄúThe Fab Five,‚Äù Terry said with a grin ‚Äì a name the group of five players
(including 2012‚Äôs John Theus and 2014‚Äôs Stanley Williams) gave themselves
shortly after that weekend in the summer of 2011.
But as recruiting went on those around Terry say he felt like he committed too
early. He backed away from his decision to pick the Bulldogs.
‚ÄúI did commit to Georgia at Dawg Night, but I just wasn‚Äôt ready then, and I did that with all the hype that night, and stuff,” Terry said. “This time, I know I am committed to Georgia, my family is happy about it, and my decision is made.‚Äù
