The Georgia Bulldogs have picked up another verbal commitment, and this one is from offensive lineman Sage Hardin of Marist School in Atlanta.
Hardin (6-6, 260) committed to Georgia over offers from several schools, including Boston College, California, Duke, Georgia Tech, Miami (FL), NC State, Syracuse, Tennessee, and Virginia.
“There were a handful of reason I chose Georgia. First of all, the geographical location. It’s close to home, at only an hour and a half. I love my family, and I’ll get to see them as much as I want. It’s a good distance to where we can still be close but not smothering,” Hardin told UGASports.com.
“Secondly, the fanbase, the tradition, and the alumni association. I believe I want to live Atlanta when I get older, so having those connections built with Georgia alumni will help me a lot down the road.”
Georgia offensive linemen coach Will Friend was Hardin’s primary recruiter, and Friend also had assistance from running backs coach and recruiting coordinator Bryan McClendon.
247Sports rates Sage Hardin as a 3-star recruit, the No. 62 offensive tackle, and the No. 55 overall recruit in Georgia. Rivals.com also rates Hardin as a 3-star recruit and the No. 65 recruit in Georgia.
The Bulldogs now have 13 commitments for the 2015 class. Hardin is the second offensive lineman commitment, joining DeVondre Seymour of Suwanee, GA.
