Josh Harvey-Clemons a Dawg?
The first and biggest announcement of the day came from Valdosta, Ga., and ESPNU 150 prospect and Under Armour All-American Josh Harvey-Clemons. Dawg fans rejoiced when JHC donned a red Georgia hat and publicly committed to the Dawgs.
However, six hours later, the Georgia coaches still were waiting on his signed letter of intent.
Coach Mark Richt publicly stated that he is not nervous and expects the letter soon.
Assuming that this commitment holds, it is a huge get.
Harvey-Clemons, listed as an athlete by the recruiting services, is getting flack from family members, who felt more comfortable with the Florida staff. He, in turn, felt solid in his relationship with UGA defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. Grantham out-recruited the Florida staff by focusing on football and helping JHC, a football player, make a football decision.
Any time the Dawgs can keep their best players in state, it bodes well for the job the Georgia recruiters are doing. Also, any time Georgia can hold off bitter rival Florida, consider it a big win.
