The Bulldogs started the new year off with some huge news in the recruiting world, with Under Armour All-American Jordan Jenkins (Hamilton, Ga./Harris County) committing to Georgia on Monday night. Jenkins chose Georgia over Alabama, Auburn, and Florida, and he is the fifth ESPNU 150 prospect to commit to Georgia so far.
