Athens — Zack Witchett made official on Friday what he has been sure of for weeks. The Washington High wide receiver and defensive back committed to the Georgia Bulldogs.
And he did it just the way he wanted, face-to-face with coach Mark Richt right on the UGA campus. Witchett and his Washington High teammates were competing in the Bulldogs 7-on-7 passing camp on Friday.
“At the end [of the competition], I just walked up to Coach Richt and stuck out my hand to shake his,” Witchett recounted. “I said, ‘I want to be a Georgia Bulldog; I’m coming to Georgia.’”
Asked what was Richt’s response, Witchett laughed. “He said, ‘woo-wee! He just let out a big shout.”
With Witchett’s pledge the Bulldogs are now up to double-figures in commitments with 10. They’re also filling up fast on wide receivers.
