Georgia beats out Bama for four-star TE, on a torrid recruiting streak


Three for three, Dawgs.

In little more than one 24-hour period, Georgia added one four-star prospect and two three-star prospects–one from Georgia and one from south Florida. And the one they landed Thursday night? It was a recruiting victory over Alabama for four-star tight end Jackson Harris. The Bulldogs immediately went from No. 10 in the national recruiting rankings to No. 7, right behind South Carolina–who received a commitment from a four-star lineman just minutes earlier.

The Bulldogs had nine commitments on Tuesday, but Harris, in-stater Gary McCrae and south Florida product Deandre Baker all came aboard between Wednesday and Thursday. Harris is a Tennessee native.

“It’s been a long and stressful process,” Harris told Saturday Down South earlier this week. “I’m ready to move on to the next step and focus on my senior season. It was very tough making my decision because they’re all great schools, but I feel like I’ve found a great fit for me, that this is the place.”

Harris is 6-foot-6, 250 pounds. He’s bright, has a good frame for the position, and he’s willing to learn. He’d be a perfect fit at any of the schools if they can land him, but they’ll have competition. His brother played at Purdue.

  • I may be wrong but wasn’t Gary Mcrae also a four-star? If so, it should be two four-stars and one three-star in the first sentence of the first paragraph.
