Georgia picks up big 2015 commit

1/16/2014

The addition of Florida State defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt is already paying big dividends for Georgia.

The outstanding recruiter and the Dawgs picked up a commitment from ESPN Jr. 300 defensive back Rico McGraw (Nashville, Tenn./The Ensworth School) on Thursday.

McGraw, the No. 81 ranked prospect in 2015, picked Georgia over offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, LSU and Ohio State, among others.

The 6-foot, 180-pound prospect gives Georgia two ESPN Jr. 300 commits in the 2015 class along with tight end Christian Owens (Griffin, Ga./Griffin).

The commitment also gives Pruitt his first commitment as a Dawg -- likely the first of many to come for the talented coach.
