Four-star running back Todd Gurley of Tarboro, NC verbally committed to the Georgia Bulldogs this afternoon. Gurley announced his decision this afternoon at his high school.
Scout.com rates Gurley as a 4-star recruit and the no. 13 running back in the nation. Rivals.com rates him 3-stars, the no. 29 athlete in the country and no. 10 overall in North Carolina.
Gurley (6-1, 210) committed to the Dawgs over offers from most of the top schools, including Auburn, Clemson, Georgia Tech, NC State, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia Tech.
