There were several commitments over the weekend out of the Peach State, but the news that could have the biggest impact on 2013 comes from Palmetto State standout and ESPN 150 athlete Tramel Terry (Goose Creek, S.C./Goose Creek).
After having arguably the most impressive week of practice of any prospect in North or South Carolina for the Shrine Bowl, Terry suffered a knee injury on the opening kickoff of the annual All-Star game on Saturday.
According to Terry, the early prognosis from doctors was a torn ACL, although he will get a more definitive answer today when the results of the MRI come in. The No. 55 prospect in the country, Terry has the talent to potentially make an instant impact for the University of Georgia, where he plans to enroll early in just a few weeks. Whether or not he plays in 2013 or 2014 could depend on the news Terry gets today.

After being committed to Auburn for 10 months, linebacker Jarrad Davis (Kingsland, Ga./Camden County) pounced on a Florida offer less than 24 hours after getting the news from head coach Will Muschamp. The Gators have the top recruiting class to date for the 2013 cycle, and their hot streak of commitments continued Saturday with Davis. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound senior racked up 114 tackles, three forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries this season.

There is no doubt that Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin has accomplished what few others have done -- make the Commodores relevant in college football. Their 8-4 record is the best in three decades, the team has sold out home games, and they are about to make an unheard back-to-back bowl appearances. The success is tricking down into recruiting as well, with Vanderbilt close to bringing in a top-25 signing class, now rated at No. 17.
They got more good news during the weekend when three-star offensive lineman Delando Crooks (Atlanta/Carver) decided to become commitment No. 22 for the Dores, the first offensive lineman to add his name to the list for 2013.
