Brannan Southerland talks about his commitment

He talks about his decision, plus, if you haven't gotten to see him in action, <b>you are not going to want to miss these videos</b> of him at Fullback and Linebacker!

When I spoke with standout FB/LB Brannan Southerland on Tuesday night, he told me that it was even between Oklahoma and Georgia. That all changed Wednesday morning.

"I just woke up and knew that Oklahoma was too far away. I told my mom I wanted to commit to Georgia, and then I told my coach when I got to school. We called Coach Bobo about 2:30pm and he was just thrilled. He put Coach Rucker and Coach Richt on the phone, and they were just congratulating me and saying how excited they were to have me."

What was the biggest factor in Brannan's final decision?

"It really came down to the distance from home. You have to get on a plane to get out to Oklahoma, and I have a lot of family here in Georgia. I would just rather be closer to them."

What is Southerland most looking forward to when he gets to Athens?

"I want to see what it's all about. See what it's like to play for a program like UGA. I'm just waiting on it to get here."

Head Coach Jimmy Chupp said that Brannan is going to a very good program.

"They did a really good job recruiting him there," said Chupp. "Coach Richt and Coach Bobo did a very good job. They're a little banged up right now, but when Georgia is full speed, they're building something special there.

Southerland is currently slated to play Fullback for the Dawgs. He is Georgia's 9th public commitment.

If you haven't seen Southerland in action, you're not going to want to miss this!
