In case you missed it, there was some big recruiting news overnight.
As Michael Carvell reports in the Prep Zone Blog — I’m on vacation in Florida — Wilcox County quarterback Nick Marshall committed to Georgia last night. What’s more, he has agreed to join the Bulldogs as a defensive back and will also play basketball.
Marshall fits well into Georgia’s “Dream Team” theme. He is a consensus Top 5 prospect in the state. I had him at number 3 in my “Tentative Top 10″ for the state’s loaded class of 2011.
Marshall chose the Bulldogs over Alabama, Florida State and Georgia Tech (among many other offers). Georgia is now up to 11 commitments for 2011. It will sign a full boat of at least 25 recruits.
