Newest Georgia commitment has to clear a technicality first


Everything will be fine by Monday, newest Georgia commitment Quincy Vasser told Saturday Down South this morning.

See, Vasser committed to the Bulldogs less than 24 hours after the coaching staff extended a scholarship offer to the junior college defensive end. He committed so quickly, the staff didn’t have a chance to double check his JUCO transcripts and Vasser didn’t have a chance to talk to head coach Mark Richt. Because the transcript hasn’t been officially checked (because of the Friday holiday) and Vasser hasn’t talked to Richt yet, it’s sort of a semi-commitment.

“It’s not done yet … it’ll all be handled Monday,” Vasser texted to SDS this morning.

An Atlanta Journal-Constitution article first reported the slight technicality late Friday. The school can’t comment publicly about any of it, but many times that doesn’t prevent the word from getting out.

“I guess you could say that everything is ‘unofficial’ right now,” Brian Mayper, the coach at Navarro Junior College (Texas) told the AJC. “I know Georgia wants him there. But I don’t think (the commitment) is a done deal until they have a chance to review his paperwork and until Quincy talks to the head coach and defensive coordinator. Once all that happens, if everything goes through, then he’s good to go.”

Vasser actually committed to Georgia linebackers coach Kevin Sherrer on Friday. Sherrer’s actually the one who offered Vasser, though apparently most offers come directly from Richt. Mayper said Vasser holds a 3.7 grade point average at the junior college.

Once everything is settled, Vasser will be the seventh commitment of Georgia’s 2015 class. He is a 6-foot-4, 250-pound prospect and is originally from New York. He also played prep school ball at Hargrave Military Academy in Virginia, so he’s traveled a long way to get to Athens.

“Honestly, it’ll be amazing (on Saturdays),” Vasser told Saturday Down South right after committing. “That’s what every kid dreams about growing up, playing in front of thousands. The big crowds on the road won’t affect me. I’m there for one purpose and that’s to get Ws with my teammates.”
