UGA gets QB commit, but not from Reid

Georgia, Ohio State and Oklahoma State are at the top of Robert Reid's list. Did the new UGA commitment from QB Blake Barnes cause Reid to knock the Dawgs out of his top three?

Tuesday evening, Robert Reid told OSUInsider.com that because Georgia received another quarterback commitment, he would no longer pursue a collegiate career with the Dawgs.

Georgia was considered by Reid as one of his top three choices.

"They (Georgia) sat me down and talked to me when I visited and told me they were looking to sign two quarterbacks, and at that time they already had one," Reid said. "I am not interested in becoming the third guy to commit to them."

Reid said that Georgia coaches didn't give him a call when they realized that they would receive another early commit from Blake Barnes, but instead he found out from his mother who ran across the news on the Internet.

"My mom basically found out when she was surfing the Web," Reid said. "It was a pretty big surprise to me that it happened, but that of course drops Georgia off my list."

Oklahoma State and Ohio State remain Reid's top two choices and he said that even if Georgia had called him, he would have said, "Too bad."

"I am not interested in committing to anyone early because I want to make sure I make the right decision," he said. "I wouldn't have rushed my decision because there was another guy ready to commit yesterday. That is way too early for me and I am going to concentrate on my high school season and see what happens after that. I will take my time and decide later, maybe right around signing day.

"You never know, they could have been a great fit for me, but they obviously think they have their guy now."
