Goose Creek (S.C.) wide receiver Tramel Terry has already shown up on Georgia's class of 2013 commitment list. The talented athlete had committed last summer but decided to re-open things in order to make sure about where he would go to college. After a visit to Athens this past weekend however, he has reaffirmed his commitment to the Bulldogs on Tuesday.
“I am going to Georgia, I am a Georgia Bulldog,” Tramel Terry told Scout. “I did commit to Georgia at Dawg Night, but I just wasn’t ready then, and I did that with all the hype that night, and stuff. This time, I know I am committed to Georgia, my family is happy about it, and my decision is made.”
The 5-foot-11, 170-pounder held offers from schools such as Clemson, Florida, South Carolina and others. Terry is considered the top prospect in the state by some and is the first in the last couple of years in such a position to not wind up with the Gamecocks. The feeling he got at Georgia was one of the key factors in choosing to play south of the state line.
“It is really hard to explain and to put into words what I feel when I am there," he said. "I just belong there – I belong around those players, those coaches, and it is the right place for me. They have something there that I want to be a part of.”
Terry becomes the eighth commitment for Georgia's class of 2013, well ahead of Mark Richt's pace with last year's class. The Maxpreps' Top Junior scored 10 touchdowns rushing last season on top of his 833 yards receiving and six touchdowns.

Just a few weeks ago, recruitniks were impressed with the quality and quantity of high level recruits that were in South Bend for the USC-Notre Dame game. Several people termed it Brian Kelly's 'Super Bowl.'
This Saturday is college football's actual Recruiting Super Bowl (well, not actual Super Bowl but as close as one gets in the regular season). On the sidelines, a truly star-studded cast, topping the century mark in terms of number of official and unofficial visitors. Though Nick Saban and his staff will no doubt be occupied with the team in purple and gold, they'll be spending some time hosting the biggest recruiting weekend Tuscaloosa has seen in years.
The biggest visitor coming in is five-star safety Landon Collins. Both LSU and Alabama are battling for his services but it will be tough to lure him out-of-state. A big win over the Tigers and an impressive visit however, might be enough to leave a lasting impression that will pay off on Signing Day. Collins isn't the only five-star or big name headed in for the game though, as illustrated by the partial list below.

You win some, you lose some. The old saying certainly applies to the recruiting game and, in the case of Georgia, applied over the weekend. The Bulldogs lost one wide receiver commitment in Goose Creek (S.C.) 2013 wide receiver Tramel Terry and gained one in Lithonia (Ga.) wide out Blake Tibbs.
“Yeah, I pretty much rushed my decision,” Terry told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I don’t want to be committed to Georgia unless I’m 100 percent in. I have other schools I’m looking at. Georgia is still on top of my list. I just feel like I wasn’t committed even when I was, so it was time to go ahead and do this.”The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Terry was one of three top 2013 prospects to commit at Georgia's summer camp in July. Though the school is still under consideration, in-state programs South Carolina and Clemson are coming on strong in the recruiting process.
“I feel the same way about Clemson as I do South Carolina," he said. "It’s out in the middle of nowhere but everybody treats each other like family there. It’s real cool.”
Tibbs' commitment softens the blow and fills a more immediate need since he's in the class of 2012. He held offers from North Carolina and Kentucky among others.
“I watched college football all day on Saturday, started thinking about recruiting, and UGA kept popping up in my head,” Tibbs told the AJC. “I was thinking about all the boys in my area that Georgia is recruiting … and that if we all go down to Georgia together, we can make an impact there.”The pair's decisions give Mark Richt 15 commitments for the class of 2012 and three in the class of 2013.
