It has been 24 hours of good news at Georgia, and that good news may not be over. Late Wednesday, Georgia added its second commitment in 24 hours and he is a good one–four-star linebacker Gary McCrae, an in-state prospect.
McCrae joins south Florida native Deandre Baker as Wednesday pickups, and later today, four-star tight end Jackson Harris is expected to choose either the Bulldogs or Alabama.
“This is big for me,” McCrae told Saturday Down South. “It is something I always wanted to do and I’m ready to start my life as a SEC player. They (the coaching staff) all say that they are happy and Mark Richt said that it made his day. Coach Richt is a good man, very cool and very nice and easy to get along with.”
McCrae is a huge outside linebacker prospect (6-4/220) and is rated the No. 274 overall prospect in America. He gives the Bulldogs their 11th commitment for the 2015 class and also helped Georgia bump from No. 12 in the national recruiting rankings up to the No. 10 spot. Getting Harris tonight would bump the Bulldogs up another four spots to No. 6 in the country, according to the 247Sports.com class calculator. That’s a seven position bump up alone, just if Georgia gets these three players.
