5-Star DE Lorenzo Carter Commits to the Georgia Bulldogs

Five-star defensive end Lorenzo Carter verbally committed to the Georgia Bulldogs this afternoon live on ESPNU.

“I decided to stay home and represent my state and hopefully bring a national championship back to Georgia,” Carter said. “(Richt) got the hire with Jeremy Pruitt and that defense is going to be nasty, so I plan on being a big part of it.”

Carter (6-5, 232, 4.63) plays for Norcross High School in Norcross, GA. He committed to the Bulldogs over Alabama, Florida, Florida State, and LSU.

247Sports rates Carter as a 5-star recruit, the No. 2 weakside defensive end, the No. 2 recruit in Georgia, and No. 20 overall in their Top247. Rivals.com rates Lorenzo Carter as a 4-star recruit and No. 36 overall in the country.

Carter will sign with UGA this afternoon, which will give the Dawgs a total of 21 signees for the 2014 class. That should wrap up what will likely be a Top 10 class.

Here is a screenshot of Carter after he announced he is heading to Athens:
