ATHENS, Ga. -- Seldom has the Georgia coaching staff had a week like this. Last Saturday the Bulldogs picked up two commitments from players who choose the Bulldogs on the spot when offered; no waiting, no visits, no nothing. Then on Tuesday, Georgia picked up a commitment from Nick Chubb, the Peach State’s most productive running back last year. On Thursday the Bulldogs received their first pledge from a prospect ranked in the top-10 players from Georgia, ESPN 150 athlete Malkom Parrish. Now Georgia has picked up a commitment from a top quarterback, Elite 11 member Jacob Park.

Tom Hauck for Student SportsESPN ranks Jacob Park as the No. 8 dual-threat quarterback prospect in the country.
Park, from Stratford High School in Goose Creek, S.C., was in town last Saturday at the Mark Richt minicamp where he spent time throwing for offensive coordinator Mike Bobo. Towards the end of the day, Bobo, who also coaches the quarterbacks, had seen enough and Parks was given an offer to play in Athens. Park told DawgNation moments later that the Georgia offer was the one he had wanted for over a year. Six days later he committed to Georgia after narrowing his list to the Bulldogs and the Alabama Crimson Tide.
