Williams makes six for Georgia

ATHENS – Georgia's Mark Richt won't meet with the media today. If he did he could have talked about another commitment the Bulldogs have.

Georgia got yet another commitment today, this time from Early County's Shawn Williams, who will likely play safety at the next level.

"He's a talented kid," said Early County coach Trey Wolfe. "He's extremely athletic. He plays in the secondary for us, and he punts the ball, too. He's also one of the top basketball and baseball players at our school."

Williams got his offer from the Bulldogs in late January. He has visited Georgia before – coming up for the now famous Auburn blackout.

Williams has been rumoured to be committed to the Bulldogs for more than a month, but he made it offical today.

Williams' Early County team bowed out to A.J. Harmon's Jefferson County in the opening rounds of the state playoffs this season, but not before he ended the year with over 60 tackles, and three interceptions. He also added more than 20 receptions on offense with over 350 yards and five touchdowns.

Williams is considered the Bulldogs' first committed safety of the season. He joins five other Bulldogs – all from in-state – to commit to the Bulldogs. The class of 2009 will be on of the Bulldogs' smallest to date. Only 15 seniors are leaving the program after the 2008 season. Na Derris Ward's transfer means the Bulldogs have only 16 spots available at this time for the class of 2009.
