U.S. Army All-American punter Marshall Long of China Grove, North Carolina (South Rowan) has committed to UGA for the class of 2016.

Long, who was previously committed to Virginia Tech, announced his decision on Thursday via his Instagram account.

“I’ve been in contact with Georgia for a long time,” Long told UGASports.com. “They never knew if they were going to offer a punter, but they said they might take someone to walk on. Finally, Coach [Kirby] Smart called me and offered a scholarship two nights ago. Georgia was my number one. It was an easy decision.”

Long (6-1.5, 214) committed to the Bulldogs over offers from Army and Virginia Tech. He also had interest from Clemson, Syracuse, and The Citadel.

Georgia now has 16 commitments for the class of 2016. National Signing Day is Wednesday, Feb. 3.
