4-star QB Park commits to UGA

Georgia’s recruiting class could be reaching its midway point thanks to a flurry of commitments, including a pledge from the top quarterback in South Carolina.

Jacob Park (6-foot-3, 200 pounds), a four-star quarterback from Stratford High School in Goose Creek, picked the Bulldogs over Alabama, according to his high school coach. He is ranked by Fox Sports Next as the No. 10 quarterback nationally for the class of 2014.

“He called Georgia, and told Coach [Mark] Richt and committed to Georgia,” Stratford coach Ray Stackey said. “He couldn’t put his finger on why he picked Georgia, but it came down to them and Alabama, and he picked Georgia.”

The Bulldogs will likely only sign about 20 players this recruiting cycle after signing a large class in 2013.

The Park commitment will also push the Bulldogs into the top-ten rankings nationally on Fox Sports NEXT. Georgia had been No. 13 coming into the day, but with a second commitment in two days and fifth in less than a week, Georgia is arguably the hottest program in the nation recruiting at the moment.
