Ben Harden, 6-3 and 295 pounds, got his offer from Georgia this week, and after discussing the offer with his family, it didn't take him long to make a decision.
"I committed to Georgia today," said Harden. "I committed to
Georgia because because they have a good academic base, and I want to major in
business. Their football program is one of the tops in the nation and that's
always a plus too. My dad and my family really like Georgia too. Those were the
three main reasons why I chose Georgia."
The Georgia coaches were glad to hear the news as he joins Justin Anderson and
John Miller as commitments this week.
"My coach called Coach Richt. I was going to call Coach Johnson my
recruiting coach, but I got Coach Richt first. He said that they were real
excited, that they were real happy with the class they are putting
Harden doesn't play other sports and he has had the time to concentrate on the
"I just play football. Right now I have a 305 bench press and a 420 squat,
and a 275 power clean."
Georgia looks to sign a big offensive line class this year, and at the rate that
they are garnering commitments, the Bulldogs could sew up their class of big men
by the summer.
