Texas kicker Jared Zirkel commits to Georgia after recently winning kicking competition in Athens
Georgia has landed its kicker for the 2020 recruiting cycle as Texas native Jared Zirkel just announced his commitment to Kirby Smart’s program.
Zirkel was recently in Athens to participate in Georgia’s 2019 kicking competition. Despite a field of 150 competitors, Zirkel came away as the champion of the event.
That result had to have impressed the Georgia coaching staff and the feeling was clearly mutual as the Tivy High School product announced his commitment to the Bulldogs on Thursday.
Below is footage from Zirkel’s winning appearance at Georgia’s recent kicking competition:
Not only is Georgia getting an accurate kicker but one that can hit from range, too. Check out this video of Zirkel making a 70-yard field goal:
