Georgia Keeps Piling up the Linemen

Ben Harden is part of an impressive offensive line class in the south, and he has become Georgia's third offensive line commitment this week.

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 together."

Harden doesn't play other sports and he has had the time to concentrate on the weight room.

"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.
