Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham knows college recruiting is a marathon, not a sprint. After trailing behind Alabama and Florida for almost a year, Grantham and his staff pulled out a come-from-behind victory to land one of the top defenders in the nation and an enormous prize for the Bulldogs' defense.

ESPNU 150 defensive end Jordan Jenkins (Hamilton, Ga./Harris County) committed to Georgia on Monday night, choosing the Bulldogs over Alabama, Florida and Auburn.
