Pope, Swoopes, and Milner commit to Georgia

Georgia picks up three more commitments in its 2002 class.

"I committed to Georgia on the visit," said Leonard Pope. "It was always Georgia or Florida. I like the coaching staff and the opportunity for early playing time. They will use the tight end. With Spurrier resigning, it was kind of easy. I will still visit Florida (1-18) next weekend just to make sure." Pope is a super tight end prospect from Americus, Georgia.

"I committed to Georgia," said defensive tackle Randall Swoopes. "Georgia is close to home. It was my decision. My father left it up to me." Swoopes, from Athens (Ga.) Clarke Central, committed to Georgia over Vandy and several other SEC schools. His father, Ronnie Swoopes, played at Georgia.

The Georgia Bulldogs were looking to sign a tight end or two this season, especially with the loss of Randy McMichael to the NFL. Well, they got their man in Martrez Milner, a tight end prospect from West Hall High School in Gainesville, Georgia.

"He has good skills and runs well," said his high school Head Coach Tim Marchman. "Tight end is a great place for him but I think he would make a better defensive end. Martrez is a hard worker that had a nice senior season."

Milner, 6-6 and 230 pounds, caught 12 passes for 390 yards and 7 touchdowns. This season, he played tight end, defensive end and wide receiver. He committed to Georgia over North Carolina, Boston College and Minnesota.

"Georgia has always been my favorite and I have always wanted to play for the Dawgs. They offered this past Thursday night and I accepted."
