Dobbs is a Dawg

Demarcus Dobbs was one of the best prospects still left on the board in the Peach State but that came to an end today when Dobbs made his verbal commitment to play for the Georgia Bulldogs

"Yes he committed to Georgia. He did it today just a few hours ago. He loved both schools and it was a real hard decision for him," Coach Danny Britt said.

Dobbs and Coach Britt called Georgia's DE coach to let the Dawgs know of his decision.

"We called Coach Fabris this afternoon. He said he was glad to get him because not only is he a good football player, he's also a good student and with good character."

Coach Britt comments on his star player.

"He's a tremendous player to have his type of size and mobility. He's also very smart for a kid that's only played since 9th grade. We've played him at every position for us just about and he's done well all over."

Demarcus could play inside or outside at the next level but currently he's slated for defensive end in Athens.

"They've talked about defensive end and even possibly an interior position. Right now he's a 5 tech though and he's being recruited at end. I like him on the outside because of his mobility but he was 233lbs last year and now he's 260lbs. You do the math. If he keeps growing, he'll play inside."

Britt feels Dobbs potential is unlimited but he needs some work with the nuances of the game.

"They're going to have to work with him and teach him to be a defensive end because he's moved around so much that he's never been able to just focus on that one position and learn all of the little things he'll need."
