The Georgia Bulldogs football team continue to tear it up on the recruiting trail, as head coach Mark Richt secured the commitment of defensive end T.J. Stripling on Wednesday morning.

Stripling is a four star defensive end prospect from Decatur, Georgia. He is a highly touted speed defensive end, and boasted offers from Alabama, Florida, and Miami, among many others.

The Southwest Dekalb High School defensive end is rated as a four star prospect according to the Rivals recruiting service and ranks as the 16th best defensive end in the nation for the 2010 football recruiting cycle.

Listed at 6'6", 215 pounds, T.J. Stripling has the frame to add much more bulk while not losing any speed. He has been clocked at 4.6 seconds in the 40-yard dash, a remarkable time for a defensive end.

His commitment comes just after four star CB Nickell Robey committed to Georgia and four star DT Garrison Smith committed to the Bulldogs.
