Days of speculation finally ended, as Kedric Golston made his college football commitment on Countdown to Signing Day today. Golston, from Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, Georgia, committed to the Georgia Bulldogs over Tennessee and Auburn.
"Georgia is a great situation for me," said Golston. "I mean I was very serious about Tennessee and Auburn but I felt like Georgia needed defensive tackles. I like the direction Mark Richt has the program headed. They are up and coming. Plus, I am a Georgia boy. The great players in this state need to go to Georgia, not leave and go to Tennessee, Florida, FSU and all those other schools. If the great players in this state go to Georgia, we can win championships."
Golston was widely regarded as the top defensive line prospect in the nation before he got into a terrible car accident back in late October. He broke his leg and doctors inserted a rod into his femur. Golston is currently rehabbing the leg and is ahead of schedule. It is still unclear as to whether he will be able to play next season.
