So you’re the Georgia Bulldogs’ top commitment for 2015. It’s all over right? Opposing coaches will delete your number from their phones, unfriend you on social networking, and generally give up, right?
Wrong. Not even close.
Terry Godwin is an in-state talent out of Hogansville (Ga.). It’s not like he’s from Tuscaloosa or Montgomery or some town in Alabama, and the Crimson Tide and Tigers just want to get him back across state lines. Godwin’s in the Bulldogs’ home state. Now, granted, Hogansville is closer to Auburn (Ala.) than it is to Athens (Ga.), but still–he’s an in-state kid. He’s the kind of guy Georgia can’t let slip away.
Doesn’t matter. Godwin has taken unofficial visits to both Auburn and Alabama in the past month. And this quote with Rivals.com should get some fans’ attention, even though Godwin has been a Georgia commitment since Jan. 18.
“Even though I am committed, everyone is still in it,” Godwin told Rivals.com after leaving Tuscaloosa this past weekend after traveling there with family. “Everyone is coming after me pretty hard.”
They’d be dumb not to.
There are still 10 months to go until national signing day Feb. 2015. The 6-foot-0, 170-pound prospect is rated the nation’s No. 1 overall athlete in the 2015 class and the No. 3 player in Georgia. He’s as quick as a waterbug and as shifty, too. Whether its at receiver or cornerback, whatever … he’ll be a gamechanger.
Commitment to Georgia or not, there’s a feeling that he’s going to be about as easy to pin down as he is when he is on the field. Good luck catching him. This may be a prospect to watch for the entire duration of the recruiting process.
