4-Star WR Van Jefferson Commits to UGA

Four-star wide receiver Van Jefferson has committed to the Georgia Bulldogs for the class of 2015.

Jefferson announced his commitment this afternoon at a ceremony at Ravenwood High School in Brentwood, Tennessee.

“For the next four years, I will be playing at the University of Georgia,” Jefferson said as he put on a UGA hat.

Van Jefferson is the son of former Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Shawn Jefferson, who played 12 seasons in the NFL.

Jefferson (6-2, 172) committed to the Bulldogs over Florida, Ohio State, and Tennessee. He also had offers from Auburn, Clemson, Kentucky, Michigan State, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Penn State, South Carolina, and Vanderbilt.

In the 247Sports Composite rankings, Jefferson is listed as a 4-star recruit, the No. 17 wide receiver in the country and the No. 151 overall recruit.

Rivals.com rates Jefferson 4-stars, the No. 23 wide receiver, and No. 207 overall in their Rivals250 2015.

The Bulldogs now have six commitments from wide receivers for the 2015 class. Jefferson joins Jayson Stanley (WR), Michael Chigbu (WR), Terry Godwin (ATH), Christian Owens (WR), and Shaquery Wilson (ATH).
