Sony Michel

Sony Michel has committed to UGA for 2014.

Five-star tight running back Sony Michel of American Heritage High School (Plantation, FL) has committed to play for the Georgia Bulldogs. He is the 5th commitment for UGA’s 2014 recruiting class.

“I’m going to be going to college at the University of Georgia,” Michel said live on ESPNU Friday night while putting on a UGA hat.

Michel (5-11, 205) committed to the Bulldogs over offers from most of the top schools, including Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Miami (FL), Notre Dame, and South Carolina.

“Georgia was a wonderful place,” Michel told 247Sports. “The first time I stepped on campus, I loved it. Georgia is something different, and I also wanted to experience something different.”

Rivals.com rates Sony Michel as a 5-star recruit, the no. 2 running back in the country, and no. 5 in the Rivals100 2014. 247Sports also rates him 4-stars, the no. 2 running back, and no. 11 overall.

It was a great week on the recruiting trail for Mark Richt and the Bulldogs. Earlier this week, Georgia received a commitment from four-star tight end Jeb Blazevich. Michel and Blazevich join Georgia’s three other commitments Nick Glass (DB, Atlanta, GA), Dontavius Russell (DT, Carrollton, GA), and Krenwick Sanders (WR, Jesup, GA).
