Dawgs Close on Running Back?

Are the Georgia Bulldogs close to getting a running back commitment?

Is Georgia close on getting a verbal commitment from running back/athlete Jason Allen, from Muscle Shoals, Alabama? Well, we'll all know in about a month. Allen plans on making his decision the Saturday before Christmas on Fox Sports Net South's Countdown to Signing Day. Right now, the Bulldogs are in a great position.

"Georgia is my leader," said Allen. "I would say that LSU is number two and Tennessee is number three. I still have a little feeling for Alabama and I (officially) visited them a few weeks ago. They have always been in the back of my mind."

There is a problem for Alabama with Allen. He wants to graduate in December. If he does, he will have to make a decision and enroll in college in January. Alabama will not hear back from the NCAA about punishment for recruiting violations until mid-January at the earliest.

"They are not out but it may be hard to pick them because of that stuff (recruiting violations).

Allen, 6-1 and 195 pounds, will visit Georgia (December 7) and Tennessee (December 14). He already visited LSU. Georgia is recruiting him as a running back, Tennessee as a wide receiver and LSU as a defensive back.
