Emmons (5-11, 213) plays for Freedom High School in Morganton, North Carolina. He committed to the Bulldogs over offers from Charlotte, NC State, North Carolina, and Tennessee.
In the 247Sports Composite rankings, Emmons is listed as a 4-star recruit, the No. 4 running back, and the No. 116 overall recruit.
If Georgia has accepted Emmons’ commitment, he likely has resolved a legal issue. According to the Morganton News Herald, Cedric “B.J.” Emmons, 17, of Morganton, was charged with misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia on Oct. 25. His court date was stated as Nov. 19.
