Scout 300 S to UGA

Georgia picked up three commitments at Dawg Night 2013 and one of those was from a top safety in the Scout 300. Kendall Gant talks about his decision here...

Since Georgia offered Kendall Gant, a big-time safety out of Florida, he said that he would not mind playing for the Dawgs.

Gant had talked to the coaches multiple times and he knew he was interested, but his interest became strong enough for him to commit to UGA when he spent time in Athens Friday night.

"I have always wanted to go to Georgia, but I just had to check out everything first. The campus is nice, the coaches are very cool, and pretty much everything stood out to me up there," Gant said.

The 6-foot-2, 180 pound safety out of Lakeland (Ga.) Lake Gibson worked out at safety mainly at Dawg Night, but the Dawgs could move him around some in their secondary.

"They want me to play free safety mainly, but they are going to use me in a lot of different ways. They think I could play a little corner too. I like how they want me to move around."

The Scout 300 prospect had an impressive offer list from schools such as Alabama, Florida, and Florida State to name a few, but Georgia is where he plans to be once his high school career comes to an end.

"My commitment to Georgia is solid," said the No. 19 safety in the country. "I may take a few other visits to just to have fun and to see places I have never seen before."

Gant is excited about his future between the hedges. He will return to Athens this fall for games.

"It feels good to be committed to the 'G'," Gant said.
