Hometown hero? Georgia lands commitment from nation's top 2021 QB recruit
As expected once he decommitted from Oklahoma, Georgia reeled in a major local recruit who just happens to be the No. 1 2021 pro-style quarterback recruit.
Brock Vandagriff of Bogart, Georgia, (Prince Avenue Christian) just outside of Athens, committed to Oklahoma in June, but decommitted about three weeks ago, and said in part about his decision that the last couple of months have brought to his attention how hard it would be to play so far away from home.
He announced his commitment to Georgia on Twitter by simply writing, “I’m staying home.”
Vandagriff is the No. 1-ranked pro-style quarterback in the 2021 class, according to the 247Sports Composite, and the No. 8 player overall in the country in that class. He has a reported 21 offers, including most of the SEC.
He is the third recruit for Georgia in that class, and the highest rated. The 5-star helps Georgia’s class be ranked No. 3 in the SEC and No. 12 in the country.
His 247Sports comparison is Drew Lock, and his evaluation is as follows:
“Possesses prototypical stature and frame for the position. Has continued to fill out and already has muscle mass, particularly in his upper body. Productive against small school competition both through the air and as a runner. Shows the ability to make throws from multiple platforms. Can stand in the pocket and drive the ball down the middle of the field while also making touch throws and hitting passes on the run. Primarily projects as a pocket passer at the next level but shows nice athleticism in making plays with his legs , rushing for over 1,000 yards as a sophomore.”
