Sturdivant Says Yes To Dawgs

A second look at the Georgia campus sealed the deal for Trinton Sturdivant, as the four-star lineman made a verbal commitment to the Bulldogs Friday.

"He called me the other day right after he finished his visit and told me he committed to Georgia," said Wadesboro (N.C.) Anson head football coach Jody Grooms.

From the 30-plus scholarship offers he had received, Sturdivant had his choices narrowed down to Clemson, Florida, and Georgia. Ultimately, the Bulldogs were the prefect fit.

"Georgia has always been real strong with him and there wasn't thing about the school that he didn't like," said Grooms. "He liked the academic support facilities; he liked the athletic facilities; and really felt comfortable with the social atmosphere there."

Because of his decision to graduate in January, Sturdivant knew he wanted to commit early. However, his decision to pull the trigger this early was a matter of timing.

"I think it was the right timing," said Grooms. "But, for him not to go to Georgia, somebody was going to have to jump out and blow him off his feet. There were some schools that made a lot of head way with him, but after talking to Trinton he sounds pretty firm."

Regardless of the firmness of his commitment, being one of the nation's best offensive tackles Sturdivant's recruitment is far from over.

"He's still a kid - he's only 17 years old - he's still impressionable," said Grooms. "Right now, he's firm with Georgia, but I know to expect anything from the [recruiting] game."
