Georgia doesn't have a lot of success winning games in the state of Florida on the football field lately, but the Bulldogs are consistently winning on the recruiting trail at one Florida high school.

The Bulldogs have lost 18 of their last 22 matchups with Florida in the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party, and recently lost a heartbreaker to Michigan State in the 2012 Outback Bowl in Tampa.

But just down the road from Raymond James Stadium at Tampa's Plant High School, Georgia is on fire.

Paris Bostick, a 3-star safety, is the latest Plant product to pledge his commitment to Georgia. Bostick chose the Bulldogs over SEC offers from Arkansas and Texas A&M.

Plant was also the high school that produced former Georgia tight end and current Cincinnati Bengal Orson Charles, as well as current Bulldog starting quarterback Aaron Murray. 

Bostick is a perfect fit for defensive coordinator Todd Grantham's system.

Don't be fooled by the 3-star rating.

The 6'1", 217 pounder is a big hitter that has the frame to be a useful piece in Georgia's 3-4 system at safety, cornerback, wide receiver or even linebacker if he fills out a bit. He has a nose for the football and is ultra-athletic. He will be a solid contributor for the Bulldogs wherever he ends up.

There are plenty of prospects in the state of Florida to go around, and Georgia has done a good job picking and choosing its battles.
