Georgia Picks Up Two Football Commitments For 2014

Georgia Bulldogs

The Georgia Bulldogs picked up verbal commitments for 2014 yesterday from Miami, FL wide receiver Gilbert Johnson and Heard County offensive lineman Jake Edwards.

Johnson (6-4, 190) plays for Southridge High School in Miami. He committed to the Dawgs over offers from Cincinnati, Florida, Kentucky, LSU, Louisville, Marshall, Minnesota, Mississippi State, Pittsburgh, and Tennessee.

“The whole way up from Miami, I was thinking about things, and I told myself if I came to the camp and did very [well] and if I get a chance to talk to Coach (Mark) Richt, that I would commit,” Johnson told UGASports.com. “I got to do those things, so I committed to Georgia. I committed because of the coaches. Coach (Tony) Ball is really a great coach. I think Coach Ball is a cool person to talk to over the phone and in person, and I like the way he coaches. He is really up tempo and it is ‘go, go, go’ all of the time.”

Johnson is not currently rated by either Rivals.com or Scout.com, but those services will likely take a closer look at him after his commitment.

Jake Edwards (6-4, 271), who plays offensive guard at Heard County High School in Franklin, Georgia, committed to the Bulldogs over offers from Appalachian State, East Carolina, Kennesaw State, Marshall, South Alabama, Southern Miss, UAB, and UCF.

“Today I just went up to the Georgia camp and worked hard and competed and everything,” Edwards told UGASports.com. “After the whole camp, the coaches asked me to come up to the office and talk to Coach (Mark) Richt. He offered me a scholarship to go to Georgia.”

Rivals.com rates Edwards as a 2-star recruit, while Scout.com rates him 3-stars.

The commitment of Johnson and Edwards gives the Georgia Bulldogs seven commitment for the 2014 class.
